Welcome to Murph’s Travels! My name is Ben and I’m a full time traveler, blogger, real estate investor, and aspiring wildlife photographer. Did you know that the hottest inhabited place in the world is located in Africa? Thats right, in Dallol, Ethiopia, which has the highest average year round temperature on the planet. Africa is also home to the world’s largest desert (Sahara) and longest river (Nile); as well as the tallest (giraffe) and largest land animals (elephant).

Guess which continent has the shortest coastline but is the second biggest? Thats right, Africa again. You can probably tell Africa is my favorite place on earth. While I do focus on wildlife and Africa, I’ve traveled to 72 countries and all 50 states in the U.S. I specifically love wildlife photography.

Balance is overrated. Moderation is for cowards. Take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. Lets have a chat about travel, Africa, safaris, history, or ?. Message me through the contact form.
