OUR PHOTOGRAPHIC SAFARI STYLE
Our photographic safaris always focus on tracking wildlife, according to the experience of our guides and of the wildlife photographer who will host the group. To maximize the photographic aspects, there will never be more than two people in each row of the car, which will always be reserved for our small group. Our vehicle will always be positioned in the best way possible, thinking both about composition and light, to allow you to have great shots. We will look for interesting scenes and stick to them as long as possible, in order to make the most out of every possible interaction
ABOUT THIS WEEK
It is an adventurous 6 day safari in Timbavati, a Wildlife Reserve bordering the Kruger National Park, in South Africa. We will experience both a permanent tented camp and a mobile one, set up just for us. Every day we will head to the bush for two long, flexible game drives, at sunrise and sunset, looking for the most interesting scenes that the day offers. But a vehicle won’t be our only way to explore the bush, as amazing walking safaris will be set up for us whenever we prefer. Life in the bush doesn’t stop at sunset, that is in fact when it starts , so we will be ready to get onto the drive vehicle and dash out into the bush at any time of night to investigate interesting noises. Many activities to learn everything about bush life will be offered and are already included in the price. Come and experience real life in the bush!
The tutoring of a wildlife photographer is included at all times

TRAVEL WITH THE BEST TEAM OF FIELD GUIDES AND TRACKERS IN SOUTH AFRICA
OUR PHOTOGRAPHIC TARGETS
There are no artificial barriers between Timbavati and the Kruger, allowing animals free range and ensuring that guests have an opportunity to view the greatest diversity of wildlife that South Africa has to offer. The area offers the opportunity to spot all the Big Five ( Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard and Buffalo ), a large diversity of antelope species, the entire range of smaller predators, over 500 bird species and a tremendous diversity of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. We won’t run after every animal, but will focus on the best photographic opportunities available, relying on our qualified guide and tracker‘s deep knowledge of the area and its wildlife and the suggestions of the hosting photographer. We will also definitely look for predators, Elephant and Rhinos. If we get lucky we might also spot the endangered African Wild Dog, but we also won’t ignore the beauty of all the small creatures and reptiles around us.
Please don’t forget your tripod. We might enjoy some great night photography sessions too!
