About Us

We’ve been running niché African photography safaris since 2012.

Our itineraries are designed by us for wildlife photographers, these are not ‘box-ticking’ tourist safaris. We’ll spend much more time with the animals, photographing them in the best light and from different angles, looking for interesting behaviour and interactions.

The atmosphere is always fun and relaxed, as well as being a place to learn more about your camera settings, fieldcraft and theory, and how to take fantastic photos of Africa’s incredible wildlife.

After a day of photography, join us for drinks on the savannah then around the camp fire to discuss the highlights of the day in the wildlife hotspots of Africa!
