This is the prime safari area of South Africa with the best circumstances for wildlife photography courses, wildlife sightings and all levels of hobby photography.

Best leopard sightings, probably in the world
Excellent Big 5 sightings
Excellent lodges with excellent rangers and trackers
Great safaris “old” style with nowadays comfort (image above: Londolozi Private Game Reserve)
Easy access by air and road, yet no self-drive in the reserves
Photographic equipment for rent available in several lodges
Great flexibility and customized game drives for photographers

The Sabi Sand in Greater Kruger National Park are really the best South Africa has to offer on
safaris. Away form the crowds and right on the first row for the best sightings.

Photo Safari Destination Week: Kruger Park, South Africa


A great photographic safari destination are the Timbavati in the Greater Kruger National Park. The Timbavati consist of private game reserves and offer excellent wildlife sightings.
Great Big 5 and especially Big Cat sightings
Excellent for
wildlife photography courses and team building incentives
Walking safaris for “on foot” wildlife photography
Ngala Private Game Reserve can be recommended as a WWF property, huge and only with the vehicles of its own two lodges operating on it (image above)
Easy accessible by air and road, self-drive to reserves is possible, but not in the reserves

The advantage of this area is the private character of the game drives and a high diversity of lodges and camps.

Happy snapping travel!

ePhoto Book: Contrast - The Light of Darkness

wildlife photography courses Kenya Tanzania south Africa Botswana contrast ebook

Photographic safaris bring you to the most beautiful wildlife destinations in Africa. Their beauty is striking and they teach the visitors not only about wildlife and nature, they also teach about light and contrast and sometimes light and contrast are mirrored in what the bush and the animals are experiencing through life and death.

Contrast makes us see and is what makes a photograph striking.
