South Africa's flagship national park and the largest in the country at over 20 000 sq kilometres, Kruger is photographic heaven. The focus of this safari will be to capture the huge diversity of species found in the park with an emphasis on photographing anything that you find. You will be staying in two of the best areas to photograph Kruger's big cats, Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. The aim is not to tick species off a list, instead, your focus will be on taking the best photographs you can, often stopping for the same species if you feel you can improve on existing images. By the end of this photographic tour, you will have captured a wonderful variety of landscapes, birds, herbivores, carnivores and reptiles.

From Johannesburg, you will fly east towards the Kruger and land at Skukuza Airport where you will be met by your photo safari guide. You will then make your way to Central Kruger, known for its more open landscapes, dotted with Marula, Leadwood and Jackalberry trees.  For 5 full days, you will venture out in search of Kruger's Wildlife in one of our specially modified photography vehicles. You will leave camp early to take advantage of the cool mornings when the predators are still active. A packed lunch enables you to be flexible if necessary, and stay out to photograph anything of interest. You will return to camp after photographing the beautiful African sunset.

The second part of your photo safari will take you to the South-Eastern part of Kruger, an area dominated by the open basalt plains in the east, the beautiful Sabi River in the centre and the rocky granite areas in the west. Your camp for your final 5 nights is conveniently located close to some very photo productive rivers and dams. Here you will find Hippos, Crocodiles, animals drinking and a good variety of water birds. The Sabi River, with its massive Sausage and Mahogany trees, is the perfect home of the elusive Leopard.

At the end of the photo safari, you will fly from the Kruger (Skukuza) back to Johannesburg where the tour will end.

There are only 3 spaces available on this safari in 1 private photographic vehicle. This will offer you plenty of space for equipment and guaranteed access to BOTH sides of the safari vehicle.

Along with an impressive portfolio of birds, you will also have a good chance to see and photograph the following:
Lion, Leopard, African Wild Dog, Cheetah, Elephant, Cape Buffalo, White Rhino, Hippo, Spotted Hyaena, Jackal, Crocodile, Giraffe, Waterbuck, Greater Kudu, Bushbuck, Nyala, Zebra, Wildebeest, Chacma Baboon, Vervet Monkey, & Warthog.

Testimonials Hi Stu, Thank you for a wonderful trip. I have been on a lot of safaris around the world and you are the best in Africa. Your hard work pays off.

Testimonials I am a Molecular Biologist by profession and a serious amateur nature photographer and have been on a number of organized trips over the last 10 years with the dual aims of enjoying nature and getting the best images possible. The organization of a two week trip with Wild 4 Photographic Safaris through Kruger National Park I shared with two other photographers and it was as good as I have ever experienced. The Porter family was friendly, knowledgeable and intuitively supportive. Stu really knows his subjects and spared no effort in getting the photographers into the best situation. He has a very pleasant, calm personality and is an accomplished nature photographer and naturalist which means he knows where the light or action is best and often what is about to happen. His vehicle is also well set-up for discriminating photographers. Justyna was just brilliant in getting things organized in the background. Having our own scout vehicle to report activity in the area while we pursued other subjects, worked well, and on a number of occasions provided photo opportunities we would have missed otherwise. In summary; rating out of 10…….no doubt a 10.
