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!!!

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.

Sue Green UK

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.

Our 14 days with Wild4 Safaris was the best learning experience we have ever embarked on. We were totally immersed in the world of wildlife photography, in the best place in the world, with one of the best pro photographers around. Stu genuinely enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion for wildlife and photography. It was an unbelievably rewarding learning experience, raising our skill levels significantly.

Stu and his team were able to teach us about our equipment and the application of new skills. This sharing of skills, along with the excellent booklet (which became Marie's bible) is world-class. It ensured we got to places that others didn't and that we were always in the best position to shoot. Stu didn't disappoint and was able to put together some memorable opportunities to get many excellent shots.

The whole package was first class, from the pickup, through accommodation, food and day trips, to the people (now friends) who we met on the trip. This is one of those bucket list adventures that we will be doing again with WILD4.

We recently joined a Wild 4 African Photographic Safari. To put things simply, we were completely blown away.  Compared with others I’ve been on, this exceeded anything we had imagined, in so many ways.

Justyna handled all our travel and trip details with exceptional professionalism and always responded to even our most basic questions quickly and in a very detailed manner.  We were met by our photo guide Stu Porter, who I cannot say enough good things about.   His spotting ability and anticipation, together with his understanding of animal behavior and the ecosystem, produced an amazing wildlife experience.  He went to great lengths to ensure that we had the best chance of capturing a great photo, without compromising the rules of the park or the integrity of the animals. This made the trip so much more than just a “drive around and snap at whatever we see” kind of experience.

In all honesty, I can’t imagine a better guide than Stu Porter.  We will be doing our future trips to Africa with Wild 4 and cannot recommend them highly enough.  Thank you so much for what a lot of people call “the trip of a lifetime”, although we feel that this is only the beginning of many trips of a lifetime.  Thank you, Wild 4!!

Shopping for a travel adventure on the Web is somewhat risky, but finally, I picked Wild4 Photographic Safaris for one reason: the vehicle!

It was obvious that this was an outfit that understood photographic details and the needs of serious wildlife photographers.  The vehicle takes just three photographers and features platforms to steady big lenses on both sides of the vehicle and loads of storage space and pockets for lenses, bodies, accessories, binoculars, field guides, water, etc.,   I can not imagine a better platform for photography in the bush.

What is not as obvious in the online description is that the vehicle comes equipped with Stu Porter, the Wild4 owner and guide.  Stu is a deceptively shy young man with an encyclopaedic knowledge of Kruger National Park and the eyes of an eagle!

Stu's knowledge and patience are seemingly infinite and he is aware of both of his passengers' needs and everything around us.  He does everything humanly possible to provide the opportunity for the best shot and what’s more, he can instruct even the most seasoned photographer on technique.

In short, Wild4 Photographic Safaris is all about the vehicle, with spacious seats, shooting platforms and Stu Porter as standard equipment.  You can't do better.

Thank you, Stu!

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.

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!

Michael & Toni Anderson USA

On our second safari with Wild4, we returned with a good friend doing her first trip.  To say the three of us had a blast would be to underestimate the experience.

Once again, we were thrilled by the variety of sights and opportunities presented to us, things that much more seasoned safari-goers have probably never witnessed.

But perhaps the best part of all was being back with friends whom we know and trust.  We know a good thing when we experience it. 

When we are ready for our next African adventure, you can bet we will contact the Wild4 Team.

Dan Dimaggio USA

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.
