Family Business

WILD4 African Photographic Safaris is a family-owned and operated business specializing in small group photo safaris to Africa's most iconic locations.

For 17 years we were based in South Africa, in a town called Nelspruit, just 45 mins from the Kruger National Park.

In 2020, we emigrated to the Australian island state of Tasmania where we are currently based.

For our transport needs at all locations, we make use of reputable safari companies with whom we have built up a strong working relationship over a number of years. Your safety is our number one concern and we only make use of quality operators who have real experience in the safari industry.

My wife, Justyna, was born and bred in Poland and is a handy photographer herself as well as a qualified tourist guide. Justyna worked on first-class cruise liners, the world-famous Harrods in London and as a top seller for the UK's largest travel consolidator. Customer service is just one of her many strong points.

Justyna looks after the office and all the important administration of our business. We have two daughters, Molly and Jenny.

My parents, John & Ann were instrumental in helping us set up our business and we will forever be grateful to them for their loving support and assistance over many years.

We are a family business with a sincere and genuine passion for our company and our clients.

Through our experiences, we have built a strong product that offers our clients the best opportunities to photograph African wildlife in a small group atmosphere.

AFRICA SINCE 2003

Our very first photo safari ran in 2003 and since then we have focussed exclusively on Africa's photographic hotspots. 

We offer photographic tours to South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania and Namibia. These countries offer an amazing variety of wildlife and landscapes along with excellent tourism facilities.

We have forged great partnerships with camps and lodges that are in the best locations for easy access to the wildlife.

PHOTOGRAPHIC DETAILS

We feel strongly that the following principles and photographic details are crucial to the success of a photo safari:

  • Quick response to clients' enquiries and personal attention to each client's travel needs
  • Specialisation in small groups of only 3 to 6 photographers per tour
  • Access to BOTH sides of the safari vehicle for unobstructed photography
  • Careful planning of logistics to ensure maximum time in the field
  • Use of locations that, through experience and over time, have consistently offered excellent photo opportunities
  • Specially designed photographic PLAT4ORMS on the safari vehicles we use at all locations
  • Photo tuition and guidance available on all Photo Safaris led and hosted by Stu Porter
  • Regular use of the same local driver/guides, who are familiar with the needs of photographers through our training manual and who operate to our specific guidelines
  • An ethical approach to wildlife photography and genuine respect for the animals we photograph and the environment they live in

Sticking to the above principles and details has been the number one reason why we have a high percentage of repeat clients and clients who approach us via word of mouth.
