Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve has always been known for its breathtaking wildlife encounters. Our quiet approach and the respect with which we conduct our safaris have ensured that guests get up close and exclusive with Africa’s amazing animals, and are able to take stunning photographs. Ever since the first game drive took place at Sabi Sabi over three decades ago, photographers have clamoured for the opportunity of visiting our reserve, and many of their pictures have graced the pages of glorious coffee table books.
Capturing safari experiences on camera has always been an integral part of the Sabi Sabi experience, and the new digital age has made it easier for everyone to try their hand at taking the perfect picture. As equipment has evolved and more advanced cameras have become available to all levels of photographers, a new and rewarding way of securing those precious memories is to engage a professional photographer to assist you with every step.
The Sabi Sabi Photographic Safari offers guests the unique experience of being guided, by a professional photographer (Photographic Host), through the intricacies of getting the very best out of a camera and of how to take that perfect, once in a lifetime, wildlife picture.
These Photographic Safaris are available on request and must be prebooked. A professional photographer will tailor your photographic safari, including the opportunity of providing cameras and lenses if necessary, and customising subjects such as camera set up, photography in the field, working with wildlife, light sources etc. At the end of the safari you and your instructor will review the images and you will discover the various methods and merits of post-processing. All of your selected photos will go home with you on a CD or flashdrive.
