Wonderfull game viewing opportunities of the “Big 5” and other game abound in South Africa. A leader in conservation practices worldwide, South Africa has much to offer the discerning photographer or animal enthusiast.
Photographic experiences for the Big 5 and other African game are conducted in Zululand’s famous Imfolosi / Hluhluwe Reserve where the general game viewing and bird life is unbeatable. Wilderness trails on foot are available here and a must for the ardent enthusiast who wishes to experience what it would have been like to traverse some of these area’s hundreds of years ago
We also make regular trips the renowned Sabi Sand Reserve, which forms part of the central belt adjoining the Kruger National Park. The speciality of this reserve is undoubtably the opportunities one gets to view the big cats (Lion, Leopard) in very close proximity from the safety of an open Landrover and accompanied by experienced trackers and guides.
If it is bird life you are interested in this is quite simply amazing and there are over 800 different recognised species here in South Africa. Southern Africa is a bird watchers paradise and the Park’s and Reserve’s are well set up with hides and blinds that can provide hours of safe enjoyment in wild surroundings. For the avid photographer both amateur and professional we can organise short photographic courses with the world renowned photographer Roger de la Harp. Please see his website for details.
