South Africa is one of the most popular countries amongst photographers looking for photography safaris and workshops.

With over 11 official languages, South Africa is teeming with culture and different lifestyles just waiting to be experienced. Whether you’re heading to Kruger Park, or up Table Mountain in Cape Town, there’s something for everyone in South Africa.

Many wildlife photography safaris in South Africa will aim to photograph the Big Five. Elephant, buffalo, lion, rhino, and leopards are all definite possibilities on a game drive in the bush.

But a good wildlife photography workshop or tour will also focus on some of the other 230 mammal species in South Africa, as well as the 175 endemic bird species. If you’re looking for a wealth of wildlife, this country has a lot to offer.

Lots of wildlife photography safaris and workshops in South Africa are run by local professional photographers, but there are also many holidays operated by international photographers bringing groups into the country. Whichever route you go down, a dedicated photography safari is ideal
