Wild4 African Photo Safaris

Specialist small group photo safaris to South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and Namibia

Stu Porter

Having been born and raised in Africa, I was fortunate to spend many holidays enjoying the continent’s beautiful reserves and parks, where I was introduced to an astounding diversity of wildlife and wild places. As a family, we have lived in Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, and are currently based in South Africa. We organize and lead personalized, authentic, small- group photographic safaris from our South African base.

In 1999, I became a qualified Field Guide with the Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA) and a Tourist Guide accredited by Tourism, Hospitality & Sport Education and Training Authority (THETA). In 2003, I obtained a BA (Hons) Degree in Wildlife Photography at Blackpool and The Fylde College, an associate college of Lancaster University in the United Kingdom.

The combination of these two passions helped me to achieve my long-held dream of operating my own photographic safari tour company.

My images have been published in several magazines (Outdoor Photography, Getaway, Africa Wild, Photo Comment); have been featured on the 50/50 Veld Focus TV show; Nat Geo Wild TV show "Caught in the Act" , Winner of the NATURES BEST "African Wildlife" Category and in numerous newspaper and magazine publications around the world. They are for sale through a number of stock libraries. I also sell limited edition prints.

Testimonials As a return customer I can't recommend enough the experience of these trips as well as photographic opportunities that surpass all expectations.  In addition I have now visited the reptile centre, as part of the extension, twice. Both times I have been delighted with the skill and expertise of the rangers there.  The opportunities set up for photography are exceptional and that coupled with Stu's masterclass in close up and macro provides a day to remember.  If you get the opportunity to do the extension, take it as it's worth every minute.
