Africa is a photographer's wildest dream. Capture wildlife images like a professional.
The African continent, with its stunning scenery, plentiful wildlife and colourful tribes offers endless photographic opportunities. The amount and variety of exotic animals and birds to photograph in one safari is tremendous and can be daunting for both a first timer and enthusiast. Our photographic safaris provide the unique experience of being guided by a wildlife photographer based in the bush who has decades of experience in photographing Africa's wildlife and landscapes.
The digital age has vastly improved any traveller's photographic experience and cut his or her learning curve dramatically. This development is most profound in the safari space where high performance cameras are now available to all levels of photographers.
Photographic safaris are available on request and must be pre-booked. We will work with a professional photographer to customise your safari and the photographer will join you on your trip and help perfect your wildlife photography skills. At the end of each day on safari you will review the images together and go through the different post-processing techniques to get the best out of your images.
These photographic safaris are invaluable in helping to capture action and special moments you experience during your safari.
SOME IDEAS FOR AMATEUR AND PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS
- Hot air balloon or helicopter flights to take a bird's eye view of Africa's flora and fauna
- Strategically positioned 'hides' – underground, on trees, beside waterholes, floating hides – allow different perspectives
- Private vehicles for ultimate flexibility
- Custom-fitted safari vehicles to maximise the photographic experience
- Green season is great for photographers. The bush is fresh and green, lots of baby animals around and dramatic clouds and skies make for wonderful sunsets
- Night photography or astrophotography to capture Africa's sky full of stars
- iPhone or smartphone photography for those who want to travel light
- Specalist photographic safaris where one spends time with professional wildlife photographers and other like-minded guests
