britishairways_216861302025548_thumbEver wanted to see a cheetah at full sprint, or come face-to-face with a giant panda? Professional wildlife photographer Andy Rouse has teamed up with British Airways to encourage Brits to take advantage of the airline’s world sale to swap internet images for real-life experiences.

 

The sale, which runs until midnight on May 17 includes flights and holidays to some of the world’s most impressive wildlife locations, where visitors can enjoy some of the greatest natural spectacles.

 

Andy said: “As a professional wildlife photographer you’re always working hard to try and bring the amazing things you’ve seen to life through your pictures, but nothing beats seeing these animals free in their own surroundings. If you get a chance to witness one of these amazing sights, you won’t regret making the journey.

 

“Just a reminder to put your phone or camera down for at least a few minutes, to soak it all in and enjoy nature, undisturbed. Too many people miss out on what’s in front of them while they fiddle around trying to get the perfect image.” Having captured some of the most awe-inspiring moments on film, Andrew has shared a list of his top 10 must-see moments:
