Meet Your Photo Safari Host, Joanne Matson!
Based in Colorado, Joanne Matson’s wildlife photography journey began in Kenya over ten years ago. Seeing the country through the eye of a lens brought Africa to a new light, allowing her to share it with others.
In 2019, Joanne’s bison image from Yellowstone National Park came in second place in a photography contest through the National Wildlife Federation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. It is currently on display in Washington, DC – making it one of 49 photos from the last 48 years. What a proud moment!
Joanne has been fortunate to capture incredible images in Botswana, Morocco, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Jo’s love for photography continues to grow, as well as her interests in the conservation and protection of wildlife, travel and hiking.
“I have traveled the world, but my heart will always remain in Africa.”
~ Joanne Matson, Colorado USA
Jo is looking forward to sharing her passion for photography and her love for Tanzania with you.
