Photo Safaris in South Africa

Photographers have a special approach to viewing wildlife and they will benefit by traveling with a photographer guide and like minded group. We present a safari that is different to those designed for the average tourist. With Africa Wild Safaris, our photo safari is all about maximizing time with the wildlife and giving you a personalized adventure. Our groups of 6 - 8 will explore the best private reserves and Kruger National Park through the lens and with our eyes and open minds. Gregory Sweeney is your host and guide and you will be staying at our own tree house lodge and a wonderful small lodge in Sabi Sands Reserve. We visit areas that are dedicated to proper management of the land and wildlife. Guests are surprised at how much they learn from guides and rangers while observing and photographing wildlife.

Photographers of all skill levels are welcome; anyone who is interested in learning, practicing, and loves wildlife is right for this trip. Your guide offers photography mentoring while out in the field and one on one tutoring or group sessions when back at the lodge with topics chosen by the guest. Our goal is to offer a photographer's safari and wildlife safari workshop at an affordable price and create for you a memorable and personal experience.

The photographic adventure of a lifetime is possible.
