If you are particularly keen on recording excellent photographic images whilst on Safari in South Africa, consider one of our Photographic Safaris.

We offer a variety of venues where extra ordinary opportunities are offered.

Visiting the Private Game Reserves generally affords better opportunities of securing that African memory. At these Game Reserves the guides / rangers will invariably drive off road into the bush, in order for guests to have a close unobstructed view of the animals. Lion for example, are notorious for lying low, just behind that bush with just a tail flick indicating their presence.


We offer a wide range of photographic safaris;

  1. Our overland safaris to the National and Provincial Parks, where the game drives are conducted in an enclosed vehicle, whilst our guide is obliged to remain on the public road network. In order to make more of photographic opportunities, visits to public hides at these game parks add to the experience and sightings.

  2. Visiting the private game lodges, normally has guests being taken on game drives in “open safari game viewing vehicles” and off-roading to get closer to high profile animals, normally only for the Big 5, thus securing good photo opportunities. On these guided safaris one does compete with other guest for prime seating etc. Most of these venues have from 4 to 10 guests on a vehicle, the fewer guests on a vehicle at a Lodge, is generally offered at the more exclusive venues.

    The Lodges in the Sabi Sand and Timbavati Game Reserves are particularly good for Big Five sightings which include the elusive leopard and regular sightings are enjoyed at these reserves. Other areas that really are good, would be the Madikwe Game Reserve and some of the Private Game Parks in northern KwaZulu-Natal such as Phinda, the Eastern Cape and few of our special venues - please discuss this with our specialist staff.

  3. For the serious photographer; we offer a number of venues where a private use vehicle may be had. No competition from other guests, no uncalled for movement and one is generally able to spend as much time at a sighting as one would like. Some of the Lodges we use have dedicated photographic vehicles with swivelling seats and secure gimbals for client use. Some even offer more advanced lenses for hire.

  4. Some of the Game Reserves offer selected species which might be sought after, with others offering speciality hides from which guests are able to secure photographs not normally easily obtained.

    There are some low level mammal hides available, such as that at the Mashatu Game Reserve in the Tuli area of Botswana and another one in Madikwe at Jaci’s Lodges. Zimanga Private Game Reserve is specialising in offering a variety of dedicated photographic hides. Light and background is critical – Zimanga has taken this into consideration and offer a morning light, afternoon light and then a large Lagoon hide, that has viewing windows to suite both morning and the afternoon light. These three are primarily bird hides, although some guests have been fortunate to have a variety of mammals visit, from elephant, to leopard, warthog and mongoose. At the Lagoon hide, crocodile are an occasional visitor too.  More hides are presently being constructed at Zimanga, an overnight hide for nocturnal animals and a low level mammal hide. This all on a 6,000 Ha private game reserve that also offer guided vehicle photo safaris, where general game including ‘high profile’ animals may be encountered. Leopard, cheetah and wild dog are specials there at the moment!

    Another popular bird hide concept that goes a long way towards slowing the rapid decline of our mountain raptors, are the Vulture restaurant hides in the Drakensberg Mountains, with the Giant’s Castle hide, probably the best known and most popular, we need to book well in advance for this one.


Our photographic safaris cater from the professional to those guests wanting to take home really excellent quality memories. With patience, time and any necessary assistance from our professional guides your visit should be rewarding.
