A photographic safari is a wonderful opportunity to hone your photographic skills and learn new photographic techniques whilst enjoying the thrill an African wildlife safari - a win win scenario for many of our guests!
All of our safaris can be classed as 'photographic' and most of our guests do take photographs and download them onto their laptops or devices whilst on safari. Many camps and lodges across Africa, India and Sri Lanka offer download facilities and a good number of our guides are keen and very talented photographers themselves and have extensive experience of wildlife photography and vehicle placement.
A number of camps across Africa offer photographic hides which really get you closer to the wildlife - often placed strategically at waterholes, on pans or near bird breeding and nesting areas. Photographic hides allow you to get much closer to wildlife and shoot from different and very unique angles and is great fun!
A photographic safari is aimed at taking your photography to a new level whilst giving you the confidence to take and produce better photos in a fun and informative way with a small group or on an individual basis. Often led by expert and very accomplished wildlife photographers, these safaris really are different to a conventional safari in that you are likely to sit for long periods of time out in the bush waiting for wildlife to come to you.. Your safari will be spent out in the field taking photos and back at camp experimenting and learning with other like minded guests and putting photographic theories into practice.
Our guests often enjoy a photographic safari first to brush up on their photographic skills and learn new techniques - and then extend the safari to put what they have learnt into practice.
If you would prefer not to travel with a small group it is possible to have your own private vehicle and photographic guide - we can recommend the best photographic camps and lodges across Africa, India and Sri Lanka.
We offer an extensive number of safaris led by professional wildlife photographers departing across Africa, India and Sri Lanka and worldwide - so if you are planning a photographic safari do give us a ring first. Go on safari with some of the very best names in photography - Marius Coetzee, Dale Morris, Elliott Neep and Greg du Toit amongst others to some of the most stunning regions on earth.
