Experiencing the natural beauty that Africa has to offer is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. Its diverse landscapes and species rich parks and reserves keep many coming back for more time and time again. There’s no better way than to combine the experience of safari with the opportunity to take back some great memories in the form of photos that you have taken yourself.
A custom photo safari is all about designing the perfect experience around your needs. That is why this is the route to go if you would like to choose the ideal time that you wish to travel, and to the parks or reserves that you have in mind. We can also tie in your photo safari experience into other travel plans if need be.
From rustic to ultra luxurious accommodation, most parks and reserves in Africa provide a variety of different accommodation options to suit the taste and budget of many travelers. The beauty of this is that you can combine different types of accommodation during your stay, for example experiencing a tented camp for a few days before moving into a presidential suite for the remainder of your stay.
Whether you are a seasoned pro, or a beginner to the photographic game, a custom photo safari works around your level of experience.
During game drives, I will assist you with camera settings, composition, lighting, wildlife behaviour and other factors that will allow you to capture your best shot.
The learning continues even when you are off the safari vehicle. Back at the lodge, we will focus on the post-processing (using Adobe Lightroom) of your images taken during game drives, as well as spending time on other aspects of wildlife photography.
A major feature of a custom photo safari is that you have the option of a safari vehicle all to yourself. This allows you to move around to best position yourself to getting the perfect shot. Having a private safari vehicle also has the added advantage of not having have to deal with the preferences of other guests, which may inhibit photographic opportunities.

A photo safari’s aim is to allow you to take more than just the conventional photograph.
Photo Safaris are not only confined to game viewing vehicles, but depending on the destination you choose you may have the choice of photographing wildlife on foot, from a boat, from the confines of a specially built photographic hide, or even from a hot air balloon.
These safaris are not designed purely for photographers. Friends and family can accompany you even if they are not interested in photography. The safari experience can be enjoyed by all!
