Our Safaris

photo safari in South Africa with photographer Gregory Sweeney

Announcing 2025 Safaris

Special Classic Safari + Water-Level Photo Hide
Visit the Kruger Area at our Tree House Lodge, then Sabi Sands Reserve Leopards, & an Underground Hide

We will close out these 10 day safaris with a 2 night stay at a small lodge where we will have exclusive use of an underground (water level) photography and wildlife observation hide. With 24 hour access to the hide, we will not miss a minute of the Greater Kruger Park big 5 wildlife activity. We start at our tree house lodge (yes, we own the lodge!) to experience Kruger national Park and the surrounding area then three nights in the famous Sabi Sands reserve for leopards. Our safaris are a delight for photographers wanting a variety of wildlife images, close encounters with leopards, and the unique perspective of a hide at water level at a watering hole. Non Photographers also welcome and will enjoy the long and varied wildlife encounters throughout this safari.

Spring and Fall are the best times to visit for a safari in South Africa: we plan around the best weather and wildlife activity.

In early autumn days are getting cooler and the rains have ended. Grass dies down and tree cover starts to drop.

In the Spring season the grass has not yet begun to grow and nights will gradually get warmer while days are dry, warm and sunny.

Both seasons are the best times to visit South Africa: low grass and tree cover, comfortable temperatures, low chance of rain, minimal bugs and dust.
