Africa is a photographer's paradise

Why? With big game, big sky and endless horizons, Africa is ideal for photographers at all levels, from budding to professional. If you have a passion for nature photography, an African photographic safari is just the ticket.

There are a number of ways you can savour an Africa photographic Safari.

  1. An Escorted Photographic Safari Tour with one of our partner photographers from Australia (see below)
  2. Small group departures with our photographic specialist guides in Africa (see below)
  3. A private photographic safari with specialist guide/photographer travelling with you in custom built 4x4
  4. A private tailormade safari itinerary taking in the best locations for photography based on your interests
