News from Steve Shames

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website! We just got back from a trip down the Oregon coast, and then the redwoods of N. California, so I will be posting pictures from that trip soon. I live in the Sacramento metro area in California with the love of my life and travel partner, Lauri. Below are the trips we have planned for 2020 so far.

Lauri and Steve in Kenya, 2018


*** August 31,-- We head off to Africa again! This time 10 days in the Serengeti. Tanzania is fully open to visitors. We are going with Dancing Zebra Safari Company again. I would highly recommend them to anybody thinking of an African safari.


***October 24th -- Fly to Atlanta, then drive around the north Georgia Blue Ridge mountains hopefully to coincide with the fall colors. Also North and South Carolina and a visit to Smoky Mountains National Park.


***November 7th (if Hawaii is open to visitors by then)-- Off to Maui for a week! Should be a lot of sunset photo ops among others.


***POSTPONED TO NEXT SPRING -- We fly to Dallas and embark on an eight day road trip through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Oklahoma. The highlight of the trip will be three days on the Natchez Trace Parkway.


***POSTPONED TO JUNE 2021 -- Another trip to Africa! This time to Botswana. We land in Johannesburg, then fly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, then proceed to Chobe, Savuti, and Moremi parks, and then to the Makgadikgadi Pans.
