This depends on the specific workshop, but we only work in small groups – the average being about 6 participants per photography workshop.

QUESTION:What to wear on an African safari?

The clothes you wear on a safari are important to think about. Keep in mind the season of the country you’re visiting when packing. Wearing long pants is beneficial to protect your legs from any scratches or bug bites that can occur when on a safari, and neutral-colored clothes are a great way to blend into your surroundings. Closed shoes are important for your comfort when walking on terrain, as well as a hat to protect yourself from the sun.
