Picture this: photographing leopards sleeping in trees, watching elephants, lions, and rhinos roaming around your open game drive vehicle, drinking sundowners underneath acacia trees – and all this in the company of a National Geographic photographer, who will bring out the best wildlife photographer in you. Sound good?
We’re incredibly excited to have teamed up with National Geographic photographer Tyrone Turner for a once-in-a-lifetime photo safari in South Africa. You’ll be based in Djuma Game Reserve; a wildlife photographer’s dream. The game reserve is set within Sabi Sands, a collection of game reserves that borders Kruger National Park. Sabi Sands 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 an impressive array of animals, including the African Big Five, 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.
Game drives will be 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, so that everyone will have perfect views and plenty of room for equipment. You will be guided by expert rangers and trackers.
Throughout the photo safari, you’ll be tutored by Tyrone, who will help you hone your photography skills and get the best possible wildlife shots. His tuition will be tailored to everyone’s level, so that every participant will get out of it what they want.

Oh and wait, that’s not all; after exploring the African bush and turning into a seasoned wildlife photographer, you can add a cultural dimension to your trip by joining Tyrone in Cape Town. Home to impressive mountainous landscapes and rich in colourful cultures, Cape Town delivers a range of exciting photographic opportunities, which you can explore during our Cape Town photography workshop.
