Join us on our exclusive photo safari to Tswalu for unparalleled opportunities to photograph some of Africa’s rarest mammals from private vehicles and possibly on foot.
Tswalu Private Game Reserve is truly unique. There are very few destinations that offer such exclusivity and rewarding photographic opportunities. The reserve is renowned as being one of the best locations in Africa for observing and capturing images of some of the continent's rarest and most elusive mammal species such as aardwolf, meerkat, African wild dog, brown hyena, aardvark and even ground pangolin.
During our seven-night stay at the delightful Tarkuni Lodge situated inside the reserve, we will have our own private vehicles and local guides to help us track the wildlife and find the optimal spots for photographing a variety of species. This will also mean that we have complete flexibility on how much time we spend out in the field for photography in search of the magnificent wildlife and taking advantage of the best light for photos. Whilst the vast majority of our photography will be vehicle-based, on occasion we may also be able to photograph these animals on foot if it improves our sighting and helps us to capture a stunning portfolio of images. The reserve is home to a habituated family of meerkats which should also provide memorable photographic encounters.
Award-winning wildlife photographer Bret Charman will be on hand throughout to provide expert tuition on composition, techniques, image processing and camera settings. He will rotate between vehicles to ensure that everyone can benefit from his advice and guidance. Out in the field there will be various chances to use a wide range of your photography equipment including long telephoto to wide-angle lenses.
In addition to this dedicated photo safari we offer further departures on our South Africa's Rare Mammals in Style tour which are perfect for those who would prefer less emphasis on photography.
