Photography Safari

A photographic safari is one of the best ways to preserve your safari memories. No matter what your level of photographic EXPERTISE, an African photo safari will provide you with countless OPPORTUNITIES to take the perfect shot.

There are various safari lodges in South Africa and Botswana that have specialist photo safaris for amateurs and professionals alike.

Being a wildlife photographer requires patience, preparation, dedication and a guide that understands how to get you into the right position for that perfect capture.

South Africa is a highly photogenic country, especially during the summer months (November-April) when the air is clear and landscapes are at their greenest.

The coastline and mountains all make great subjects, but the country’s most popular venues for photography will definitely be its game reserves, with their magnificent variety of wildlife, which tends to be better for photographing during winter.

The Waiting Game: Many lodges throughout Africa have striking waterholes where animals gather.

You can view this from you private deck or from your plunge pool.

A few founding’s have gone the extra mile and built hidden spots where guests can conveniently sit and wait for all the action to happen right in front of them

Sabi Sand Region, Lion Sand Private Game Reserve has various hiding spots for photographers to get close to the wildlife.

On the Water: In Botswana’s Okavango Delta, traditional dug-out canoes known as mokoros allow travellers to silently float close to animals on the bank and in the water.

Bird watching from the mokoro is exceptionally great and the slow, steady movement of the boat is conducive to taking great photographs.
