Client Testimonials

John & Marie Holding AUSTRALIA

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Greg Morgan UK

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.

Colleen Sullivan USA

Wild4 Photo Safari gave me much more than an average safari tour.  The experiences, friends, and information gathered from my trip will stay with me forever.  My anticipations were greatly exceeded, beyond anything I could ever have dreamed of.  I Love Wild4!!

Slim & Barbara Callaghan UK

Any aspiring photographer looking for a wildlife safari should go with Stu and Justyna Porter at Wild4.  You will be guided by a graduate professional photographer who is also a highly-qualified South African field guide.

Stu's knowledge of photography and understanding of African wildlife is exceptional.  He is also blessed with an amazing spotter's eyesight.  Each day his talents are passed on with sincerity and quiet enthusiasm.  Nothing is ever too much trouble and his positioning of the vehicle for the best light and animal profile is always his first consideration.

Any successful safari relies on a good backup team. This family company is most ably supported by Stu's wife Justyna who is the drive behind the scenes and efficiently arranges the accommodation and all the logistics.

This trip was most rewarding in both personal and photographic terms and one of the best we have ever enjoyed.  Sincere thanks to you all.

Del Hunter UK

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!!!
