Our advice is you look round and get familiarized with the surroundings, the light and the landscape. Take a moment to observe and give context and meaning to what you wish to capture…and yes we know sometimes the bush does not allow following this step-by-step process as wildlife is unpredictable, but this is part of the adventure.
Our tips to make the most out of your safari

- Do not forget to bring extra batteries and memory cards! You will not have many chances to charge your camera or transfer photos to external drives throughout the day and you will use them all 😊
- Early mornings will give you great opportunities to get magical shots. We guarantee you the light at that time of the day is worth the early wake-up call!
