REEF & BUSH – TWO WORLDS – ONE SAFARI

A unique photo safari combining time underwater as well as time in the bush. Time to enjoy two Worlds in one trip, photographing the life on reefs followed by time spent with the Big 5. A unique trip starting in one of South Africa’s best reef ecosystems, Sodwana Bay. Once gear is dry, we head across the Makatini Flats to one of Sputh Africa’s most famous Reserve for game hides, Zimanga Game Lodge. With no less than 9 hides to choose from, we will get up close and personal with both birdlife and members of the Big 5.

This trip will form the basis for all future trips, with the idea of creating trips further north into Africa as travel opens up. This is a trip for keen underwater and wildlife photographers – a trip for those keen to get wet, and then spend some time in the African bush.

Our own boat at sea, and our own private Lodges in the bush. The only thing you will have to do is get yourself there, and bring along your drink of choice – the rest, they say, is laid on!

This will be a trip for anyone keen on getting the shots – from beginner to professional. There will be no formal tuition, but we will sit down each day and go through images you wish to discuss. Discussions can range from camera settings, to image construction and finally, the edit process.

Being the first trip of it’s kind, the costs will almost be at break-even prices, so will be a bargain for anyone keen of this type of trip. So take advantage now, otherwise you will regret it in future!
