Yet realistically it is important to understand that quantity and quality cannot be combined. It often takes days or even weeks to get the right shot. But if patience persists, the results are spectacular.
Over the course of 2017 we have hosted several private photographic safaris. Below a few images taken on private photographic safaris.
This almost photographically unvisited region can produce remarkable images. Anyone who wanders off the main tourist track onto this dramatic landscape between the Limpopo and Levhuvu rivers, where ancient Baobabs hint at striking images will be rewarded with unique and exciting experiences. The riparian forests holds numerous wildlife treasures, revealed only sporadically while mist covered mornings along the Levhuvu river creates a most enchanting backdrop for even the most common and overlooked species.

Again, one of Africa;s premium wildlife destinations and a reserve that prides themselves in putting the wildlife experience first. This is the largest property within the Sabie Sands reserve and directly borders the Kruger Park. Wildlife is in a league of its own, there are only two camps on the reserve and no other camp share the area.
