Our African Photography Safari is a 9 day tour like no other and, for many, a once in a lifetime experience. Shoot up close and personal from secluded hides at ground and water level, or from open-top game vehicles driven by your personal game driver, who is always looking to have us at the right angle and light to capture the best images. We will be spending our time at two privately-owned game reserves and this, combined with open vehicles, allows for an intimate interaction with the animals while not intruding on the animals’ natural behaviour.

Along with some of the finest predator and elephant viewing in southern Africa, you will have the opportunity to see and photograph lion, leopards, cheetah, giraffe, water buffalo, wildebeest, hyena, zebra, warthog, baboon and more. Of course it goes without saying that you will encounter some of the most beautiful African birds, with over 400 species living in or visiting the area; including the world’s largest bird, the ostrich.

Our photography safari will begin and end in Johannesburg, which will allow easy access for international flights. Whilst at each of the game reserves you will be able to participate in 2 game activities per day; these will be morning and afternoon game drives of 3-4 hours duration, or a hide activity. During the hide shoots, you will be provided with a professional quality gimbal allowing easy, fluid movement as you shoot at ground/water level

Once your photography safari has commenced, you will have an all-inclusive experience covering meals, accommodation, road transportation, domestic flights, photography tuition; not to mention a wonderful time.

Photographers of all abilities and experience will marvel at the images you take home, but importantly you don’t have to be a photographer to be captivated by the atmosphere, animals and landscapes of Africa. Many of our non-photographer travellers can’t resist taking a few shots with their tablets or phones; you’ll get that close!
