It’s been known for some time that South Africa is a photographer’s paradise; it has the landscapes, the wildlife and diversity to make it hands down one of the most exciting destinations in the world. This, of course, makes for a veritable smorgasbord of opportunities to capture that perfect holiday shot, and on this exclusive safari holiday you can do just that. We’ve put together a uniquely tailored adventure that’s sure to get any keen photographer scrambling for their spare lenses: in the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, spend five days receiving expert wildlife photography tuition from some of the field’s award-winning professionals and capture your safari experience with some incredible images while staying in two of the area’s highly regarded luxury lodges. Embark on exciting game drives and catch glimpses of the reserve’s spectacular array of wildlife including lion, leopard, rhino, cheetah, buffalo and elephant, not to mention over 200 other animal species indigenous to the area – this really is a break from the norm.
Get up close and personal
Few places in Africa offer up close and personal encounters with wildlife like Sabi Sabi, so it’s only right you perfect the art of capturing your once-in-a-lifetime safari shots in the area’s stunning Game Reserve. The photography tuition, led by wildlife photography duo Albert Froneman and Chris van Rooyen, will combine theoretical instruction with personal coaching throughout your trip, teaching and assisting with techniques such as camera set up, photography in the field, working with wildlife and light sources.Read more
Albert and Chris are renowned for their spectacular bird photography and are previous finalists in the BBC Wildlife Photography of the Year competition, so it’s safe to say these guys certainly know what they’re talking about.As well as taking in your incredible surroundings on game drives around the reserve, you’ll get the chance to digitally process your images at the day’s end in the comfort of one of Sabi Sabi’s four 5-Star lodges, along with an informal discussion and critique from Albert and Chris who’ll give useful hints and ideas on capturing that special shot.
For four nights you’ll rest your head at some of the area’s most luxurious accommodation. Bush Lodge is your first port of call, a beautiful group of thatched suites that are quite rightly regarded as Sabi Sabi’s prize lodge. The surroundings here are absolutely teeming with wildlife – handy, then, that it sits right beside a busy watering hole within metres of the lodge’s deck. Your stay here is followed by two nights at Selati Camp, where you’ll stay in stylish colonial suites featuring luxurious furnishing and a private plunge pool.
No detail is spared on this exciting safari, from the accommodation’s private bathrooms down to the top-of-the-range equipment on hand. If you’re looking to test your camera skills, or just keen to shoot some incredible snapshots of the stunning array of African wildlife, look no further. It doesn’t really come much better than this.
