Enjoy close encounters with lions and leopards, photograph herds of elephants and buffalos, drink sun-downers under acacia trees, and hone your photography skills during professional tutoring.
Set in an exclusive private game reserve, this photo safari is a wildlife photography dream. The area is known for the high frequency of close encounters it offers with the African Big Five, including the elusive leopard. During two three-hour game drives a day, you’ll photograph an impressive array of wildlife, and improve your skills along the way. Throughout the trip, you’ll be accompanied by wildlife photographer Alan Hewitt, who will help you become the best photographer you can be.
This photo safari is set in Sabi Sands, a collection of game reserves that borders Kruger National Park and offers truly unique safari experiences; nowhere else in Africa do you spot the Big Five with such ease. You can prepare yourself for some exciting close encounters with lions, leopards, elephants, rhino, and a wealth of other wildlife, as the animals have been habituated to the safari vehicles after many years of game drives in the area. The area is particularly famous for its remarkable sightings of the otherwise elusive leopard.
We have the luxury of having a lodge to ourselves, and the opportunity to build the whole experience around getting the very best photographs. Game drives are a twice-a-day treat. Early in the morning and in the late afternoon, when the African light creates its magic, we’ll set off to pursue the best photo opportunities the bush has to offer. The drives will be in open game drive vehicles, with no more than six photographers per vehicle. You will be guided by expert rangers and trackers.
Expect to photograph the Big Five; lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes, and rhinos. Together with antelope, zebra, and giraffe, they will create a constantly evolving tableau of African beauty. The combination of close encounters with wildlife, lush African bush, and warm light will provide incredible opportunities for wildlife and landscape photography.

Value For Money
This was a fantastic trip, where we lost count of the number of Leopard sightings. In addition the private reserve is home to Lions and Elephants making it a great destination for photographers and wildlife lovers alike. Alan is a great photographer, always on hand to lend assistance, both in the field and back at base.
