Photography course – 6 days/7 nights
Photography course – 6 days/7 nights – for those people who love their cameras and taking photos but want to learn new techniques and improve the quality of their photos. Led by an experienced photographer, you will focus on the thought processes involved in taking better photos and have the opportunity of putting new practices into action in the bush!
You can expect to see the Big Five (elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard) and if you are lucky the Little Five (leopard tortoise, rhino beetle, ant lion, elephant shrew and buffalo weaver).
Set in a remote private concession of the South African bush, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, accommodation is in shared, single sex, raised ‘tented’ rooms with their own en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, twin beds and balcony.
The camp is unfenced and open to the bush and dangerous wild animals occasionally come through the camp so you are very much part of nature!
There are a variety of biomes for you to explore with the group and you will be amazed at the variety of the bird life in this protected area. Visit the wetlands adjacent to the Limpopo River bordering with Zimbabwe or the fabulous Fever Tree Forests.
The day starts at 4.30am with coffee and rusks, departing at 5am on the first game drive or hike out of camp. At that time of the morning the light is perfect for photos but more importantly the animals are more likely to be out as the day heats up and temperature can reach 40 degrees!
A hearty breakfast is at 10am and the next trip out will be around 4pm again to take advantage of the cooling temperatures, evening light and animals looking for the water holes!
In the evenings, sit round the camp fire and share stories and make friends! Guests tend to go to bed early for the early start next day and have a siesta around midday when it is very hot.
Clothing should be khaki or brown or beige in order to blend into the bush. A good pair of walking boots are recommended, as well as hat and water bottle or camel. A small rucksack comes in handy to carry your camera, extra water, snacks, etc. We also recommend downloading an App on your phone with all the birds in Southern Africa. This will enable you to recognise species and also the App will have bird calls so you can also identify a bird by its call.
