I have always dreamed of taking a photo safari to Africa but had a disappointing first attempt last year.  The urge was still there, so after some more research, I came upon Wild4 African Photo Safaris.  I was excited that this time I would really get the experience I was hoping for, and it did not fail.

The pre-tour information left me well informed.  I could already tell that this would be an adventure of a lifetime.  On safari, Stu’s knowledge continued to surprise me.  Not only does he know about photography, but his familiarity with the animals and their environment is unbelievable.  This meant he never let us miss an opportunity.  Stu was patient and informative.  His tips will help with all of my future photography endeavours. 

This Wild4 Safari went above and beyond all of my expectations.  It really was a dream come true.

This was my third photographic trip to Africa, and I have to say the best!  Stu has great knowledge & passion for wildlife and photography that he is willing to share: I certainly learnt a lot.  The setup for photography in the vehicles is extremely well thought out.

There was an amazing variety of great photographic opportunities and I really enjoyed time spent with the animals.  I am very pleased with the results!

After coming away with renewed enthusiasm for photography, I am planning to do another trip with them soon.

The Wild4 team made my trip to South Africa a truly memorable experience.  Stu's tuition on techniques, composition and familiarity with your gear was the foundation for the rest of the trip. 

We had some wonderful sightings - highlighted by spending time with a leopard cub in a tree no more than 30 metres away and watching a pride of 14 lions stalking a herd of zebra for more than an hour - just wonderful experiences!   The quality of my shots was infinitely better than on a regular safari, as the whole focus is expertly designed to maximise photographic opportunities.

Stu's knowledge, enthusiasm and patience were boundless, and Ann's spotting and catering skills were priceless!  I hope to visit Africa again soon, and without a doubt Wild4 will be my first option.

For thirty-five years I have dreamed of going on a photographic safari in South Africa.  I have finally realised that dream and my hopes and expectations were surpassed in every way.

I researched extensively before settling on Wild4 Photo Safaris.  What an inspired choice that was!   This family company provides the perfect safari experience for photographers of every skill level. 

Stu is a fine wild-life photographer and a first-class teacher.  His knowledge of the habitat and habits of the animals and birds to be found in Kruger National Park is simply encyclopaedic.  My 25-year-old daughter and I eagerly adapted to the early morning wake-up call, to go off into the wilds in one of Stu’s specially fitted jeeps, to catch the sunrise. 

Every day brought its special moments and we returned home with thousands of photos to sort through and cherish for the memories they’ll bring back.

A safari with Wild 4 is a photographic experience with a master photographer, an initiation into the wonders of South African wildlife and spectacular landscapes - and an experience of friendship as everyone aboard the jeep bonds in common purpose.

Everything about Wild 4 is first class.  The organization is superb, accommodations excellent, choices of locale perfect.  Our safari with Stu and Wild4 was truly the experience of a lifetime.

Many thanks to Wild4 for a truly memorable trip.  Stu’s guidance and photography skills provided excellent opportunities to get some great shots.  His professionalism and commitment made the safari ‘special’.  Having only 3 photographers per vehicle made an incredible difference and there was plenty of time to shoot  - or just watch.

The accommodations and meals were excellent.  Many thanks to Justyna for her wonderful help on the admin side, making my booking a dream.

I have been on trips before but none quite so enjoyable as this one.

Would I go again?  Would I recommend to friends?  Without a doubt, a big YES to both!!

Sincere thanks again to you all.

Maureen & Trevor Lovegrove UK

From the moment we contacted Wild4 we were impressed with the prompt, friendly, enthusiastic way our queries were answered by Justyna.  Nothing was too much trouble.

Stu is a passionate wildlife photographer eager to pass on skills, ideas, techniques and information.

The wildlife sightings were awesome, amazing, exciting - just a few words that come to mind.

We have had many safaris in various countries but this surpassed them all.

The only decision now is not if, but when we return.

Stephen Tattersall UK

This was the second trip with Wild4 and one of the most memorable and pleasurable I have ever been on.

We were blessed with incredible sightings, from a frenzy of feeding wild dog to fighting black mambas. The memories will linger forever through some great images shot from customised vehicles driven by expert drivers. 

The camps chosen were great and there was a real and genuine feeling of being a part of your surroundings.  A truly African experience.  From the bush to the Chobe River and the specially adapted photographic boats, we could not have asked for more. 

I must extend an enormous thank you to you Stu, for your endless patience and professionalism.  Also a big thank you to Justyna who’s meticulous planning ensured a seamless trip.  Good job!

Stu ... Cannot say enough great things about Wild4.  The entire Porter family is #1 in my book.  I shall recommend you to friends as often as possible.  

You made my trip the very best and one that I'll always remember.  

Thanks again.

John & Lorraine Carnemolla AUSTRALIA

This was our second trip with Stu and our first in Tanzania.  The sightings exceeded all our expectations. One of many highlights was seeing 22 lions drinking at a stream in the Ngorongoro crater.

The accommodation was once again first class, even the tented camps. 

Stu, together with our local guides, James and Jeremiah, always managed to have the vehicle in exactly the right position for the best pictures.  Can't wait to go again.

After 2 previous safari attempts were cancelled, I looked around and found Wild4.  Justyna was extremely helpful in putting together a tailor-made tour just for me.

I tend to shy away from flash but during a night shoot, I quickly learned a great new technique and the photographs turned out wonderful.  In short, Wild4 Photographic Safaris is the one you want to book with to get the best opportunities.

This is not the last time I will make use of their services.  Thank you Justyna & Stu for a wonderful time.
