roho ya chui, photography, travel, training, africa

Welcome, my name is Ute Sonnenberg. I write this blog about photography and especially wildlife photography with the connected adventures on photographic safaris. I try to share my experience and knowledge about the subject to help people finding their way around in this complex matter and to inspire photographic adventures. The name of the blog, Roho Ya Chui, is Swahili for “soul of leopard”. It is the name of my company, where we help people organizing their photographic safaris, wildlife photography courses and team building photographic safaris.

Please feel free to ask any questions and please share your thoughts and feedback. My email is and the website is

Thank you for visiting and  reading the blog!

Thank you for your continus support.

Warmest regards, Ute

  1. Hello, Ute. I have just nominated you for several blogging awards on I enjoy the way that your posts get me thinking about photography.

  2. Such stunning photographs! I spent a few weeks in Kenya years ago and it was among the most incredible of my life – your beautiful blog reminds me of that time. I hope to visit South Africa one day as well. Thank you for following my blog, and I look forward to your new posts (and to catching up with your previous ones too!) :)

    1. Thank you Letizia :-) I can imagine that Kenya made a big impression, its stunning! Hope you will be able to visit South Africa as well and thank you for your comments and inspiration :-)

        I am German but living in London UK, never been in Africa, but as a teenager tried to learn a bit of Swahili!

  3. Hi Ute,

    I found your blog through another blog I follow (Alastair’s) and I wanted to say thank you for sharing what you know and love here. I’ve enjoyed looking around and will look some more (and more in the future).

    Warmest regards from the Philippines,

  4. Enjoyed this post, and your thought-provoking perspective on the intuition and photography.
    My given name and business name are both Kiswahili — how nice to have found roho ya chui. Blessings!
