Wild4 African Photographic Safaris

Wild4 African Photographic Safaris

Authentic small group photo tours to South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and Namibia

July 2017 - WILD4 Photo Safari vehicle Launch - KENYA

Posted by Wild4 Photo Safaris on 28th Jul 2017

We are very proud to announce the launch of our first Kenyan photographically modified safari vehicle, which will be available for use on both our scheduled and custom designed photo safaris within Kenya.

Our previous clients will know how we have pioneered the way to provide photographic supports on vehicles for photographers. Our professional adjustable photobar and beanbag systems that we use on safari vehicles in Botswana, Kruger, Mala Mala, Namibia and Tanzania offer a comfortable solution to the challenges of using heavy telephoto lenses. With the launch of our latest photographically modified safari vehicle, we have taken these photographic modifications to a new and even more professional level.

The vehicle was purchased in 2016 and the unique photo modifications were done in March 2017. We then took the vehicle for a test run to Tsavo, East, West and Amboseli in Kenya, in early July and not only did the vehicle prove to be better than we had hoped, we will also be launching a new tour to include Tsavo, Amboseli and the Masai Mara. The first of these trips will be run in 2018, details of which will be posted soon.

The vehicle has been modified specifically for photography and here are just some of the special features that it offers:

> More comfortable and more spacious than other vehicles
> Specially designed seat back pockets for photographic equipment
> Comfortable seated and standing shooting positions
> Seated shooting height can be adjusted based on how tall you are
> Professional beanbags and panning plates are provided
> A Gimbal can be attached (but not provided)
> Re-charging facilities on board
> Roll back canvas roof for unobstructed views
> Roll up canvas sides for better field of view when seated
> Unique rain protection system allows for photographing in the rain
> Ready to use GoPro / Action Camera mounting points
> Comfortable reclining seats
> Maximum of only 3 photographers with access to both sides of the safari vehicle

After 15 years in the industry focusing purely on small group photographic safaris, I believe that this is without doubt the most unique and versatile photo safari vehicle in Africa !

We look forward to welcoming you in Kenya !

Our uniquely designed seat back pocket system allows you to unpack your essential gear and have it ready for immediate use





Our unique adjustable photobar & beanbag system covers the important issue of shooting height. No matter how tall or short you are, our system will offer you a comfortable photographic position

A Gimbal can be attached to our photobar system via a g-clamp. We do not provide these items, but you are welcome to bring them with you.

Testimonials If you are serious about nature photography, you can't do better than booking with Wild 4.  Wild 4's itinerary provides sun-up to sundown quality photo-ops, and you feel you are traveling with good friends who are showing you their favorite spots. This was our fourth African photo safari (three others in East Africa) and we could not believe what a difference it makes, when a professional photographer, who understands light and animal behavior, just happens to be your driver, in a photo vehicle he designed himself. There was super spotting work from Ann from a separate radio equipped vehicle. We were the first on a leopard / impala kill thanks to one of Ann's incredible sightings, resulting in a sensational series of images shot over 45 minutes of the leopard dragging her prey to her den. After an exciting, productive day in the field, we were treated to friendly conversation, sitting around a campfire, and wonderful feasts magically prepared by Ann.  Wild 4 is a totally professional and very special company. Thanks Stu, Justyna and Ann for a sensational safari.

Testimonials I wanted to thank you so much for the best safari I have ever been on and for your tremendous help both with the photography and Lightroom. I understand more about both in relation to wildlife than I ever have. Everything was brilliant. We were extraordinary lucky with what we saw but being able to take better photo’s and then edit them with more knowledge means I will have memories that will last for ever. Your (Wild4) attention to detail means that things run smoothly in a part of the world not always known for that. I really can’t thank you and Justyna enough for that.
