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!

I've recently returned from a "Wild 4 Photo Safari" and can recommend them without reservation. Their skill, professionalism and expertise is excelled only by the standard of excellence shown in every aspect of the trip. 

From the logistics to the accommodation, the food to the transportation, their inside knowledge of African wildlife to their passion for what they do, every aspect SUPERB!! 

If you are looking for the ultimate "Photo Safari", this is it!  

I will definitely book again!!!

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.

Andrew Oliver CANADA

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.

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.

Linda Cappello AUSTRALIA

I recently did a Wild4 trip with a friend, which far outweighed our expectations.   Wow, what a trip!.  Stu has extensive knowledge of the animals and their habitats and was always mindful of us getting the best shots possible.  We had our own bench seats which was great as we both had plenty of space for our equipment.   Each vehicle has beanbags to steady your camera/lens, pockets and enough room to take a camera bag.  I loved that we could sit and watch lions at Mala Mala play in the Sand River, it was a fantastic opportunity.

Stu provided us with some great tuition and I learned a lot of new photo techniques.  We had many opportunities for night photography, silhouettes, time-lapse, low light etc.,

I would highly recommend the Wild4 Team for your next photographic safari, you will not be disappointed.

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.

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.

Malcolm UK

This was simply an outstanding photographic safari all round – by far the best that I have been on!  As a keen enthusiast photographer, looking to step up a level and enter 2 competitions later in the year, I could not have hoped for more.  Excellent!

The Wild4 team is very well organized and their prompt and helpful responses to queries pre-trip ensured they were easy and a pleasure to deal with. 

Stu Porter can pitch his photographic tuition at any level and his attention to detail and enthusiasm was spot on throughout this trip.  Already comfortable with my own photo technique, I was surprised by just how much I learned.  I have easily adopted his full-on manual approach, every bit of which he was able to justify - a revelation!  I am quite picky, but I cannot praise these guys enough and I will be back. 

Very many thanks to the whole team.

David Austwick UK

On arrival, we were treated as part of the family by the Wild4 Team.  We had everything we needed for the task – a specially equipped “Hide on Wheels”, a dedicated and professional approach to photography and plenty of time.

The initial sighting would be accompanied by the excited, rapid firing of shutters, but then we would settle and wait as long as necessary in the hope of getting something different.  Stu’s awareness of animal behaviour and camera settings was very useful in planning our shots.

His knowledge of African wildlife and skill as a wildlife photographer is second to none, and I have learned a lot from his expertise.  I am delighted with my photos!!

This was the trip of a lifetime, good accommodation, delicious food and great company.  It was altogether a wonderful, challenging and thrilling experience and, if you are looking for a photo safari in Africa, contact Stu Porter at Wild4.
