Christophe Courteau and the Wild Dogs... Follow-up... !


Christophe is back from a new photographic trip in Botswana, where he spent some time with a pack of African Wild Dogs, then he went down to the Central Kalahari Desert in order to start a new project. There he had the opportunity to take photos of one of the last grup of bushmen whom are living in the Kalahari Central, guided by Neeltjie Bower. She was born and raised among Bushmen people and she speaks fluently their amazing "click" language. Unforgetable experiences.
