The most spectacular aerial photos of Africa you'll see all week

Proving that not all amazing wildlife photography requires climbing trees or getting close enough for monkeys to hurl crap at your jeep, Brooklyn-based photographer Zack Seckler decided to capture a different view of Botswana, by riding shotgun with a local bush pilot in his low altitude, ultralight aircraft. The photos he took not only speak for themselves, but are 100% free of orangutan feces.
