The WildFrontier Kruger Photo Safari package geared for the amateur photographer who wants to get more out of their camera and take better pictures …. and what better place to learn these skills than in the Kruger National Park, where we get presented with awesome sunrise and sunset vistas, fantastic contrasting landscapes and superb wildlife subjects! As a base we operate from a 4 star lodge on the southern border of the Kruger Park. From here we will make various excursions into the park, or along the Crocodile River in the conservation area around the lodge.
We will vary the times of the safari to explore different times of day and lighting conditions to maximise your learning experience on safari with us.
Wildlife roam freely around the lodge, so keep your camera with you – you never know when an opportunity will present itself!
We usually operate with the following itinerary as a guideline:
Day 1: Arrival – Review of your equipment, 2 hour Crocodile River drive
Day 2: Early start to catch the sunrise, and a full day safari in Kruger Park, review the days photos around the fire
Day 3: Afternoon safari in Kruger Park, an 8 hour safari starting in the afternoon and going to gates close, to catch the sunset
Day 4: Sunset drive in Kruger Park. A evening trip to include flash photography at night
Day 5: Depending on departure time, 3 hour morning walk in Kruger
We cover the following topics during the safari:
Kruger Photo Safari Package per photographer sharing: USD 2600.00 (Minimum 2 people)
Non-photographer partner – USD 2000.00
Our photography expert
Our photography expert on our Kruger Photo Safari is Shane Rorke from 109 Photography. Shane will be on board to give on-the-spot advice and personalised assistance at each photo opportunity that we encounter.
Shane will guide you in the use of your equipment, the settings to use in different shooting situations, give advice on lighting and composition for you shots and evaluate your pictures and give commentary around the campfire at the end of an awesome day of shooting in the Kruger Park.
My love for photography began on a trip to America at the tender age of twelve. The tall, impressive buildings and busy streets of New York had my mum and I fighting over the camera. My love for the bush began much later. My first real trip to the bush was when I was twenty three, to the Kruger Park. I was immediately intoxicated by the sights and smells of the park. It was an ever changing landscape that gave a photographer so much scope, from the smallest insect to the grandest landscape. Once the bug had bitten there was no turning back. These days a trip to the bush is my favourite getaway, and luckily I manage to get out there at least three times a year. Every time I’m there, I fall in love with it even more. ~ Shane Rorke ~
The Lodge – our base for our photo safari
Lodge at night
– We limit the amount of people on our photo safari trips to 6 people. This allows us to comfortably accommodate people and equipment on the safari vehicle.
– For your convenience, please book your flight to Nelspruit (Kruger Mpumlanga International Airport – KMIA) for as early as possible on your arrival day. This allows you to maximise your time with us.
– Likewise, book your departure flight for the afternoon, to accommodate an activity on your last day and allow travel time to the airport.
– Rental vehicles can be arranged from the airport (do this in advance), or you can arrange for us to collect you at the airport and transfer you to the lodge (enquire for fees on this here).
