Africa Photo Safaris|
with professional wildlife photographer GREG DU TOIT
If you are a photographer wanting to experience the best photographic safari in Africa then you are on the right page! The African Photo Safaris and African Photography Workshops listed below guarantee you full memory cards and exceptional photographs. Not only do they offer you the very best predator and wildlife action on the continent but you will enjoy an authentic African experience, not contrived or touristy!
Visiting Africa is costly and being a photographer, I know what photographers want. You want to be in the right position at the right time to capture award winning imagery. You want to spend quality time in quality locations and you want to return home with exceptional photographs. You also want maximum freedom and you do not want to be surrounded by other vehicles. If you join me on any one of the below safaris or workshops, I offer this to you! Read recent comments from guests hosted on my African photographic workshops and Africa photo safaris here. Still got questions you need answered?

24 May - 1 June FULLY BOOKED!

We are looking at adding a Nov 2014 date due to the overwhelming popularity of these safaris. Watch this space.
This highly exclusive safari (limited to only 3 photographers) has been specifically designed around predators and big game. This is an Africa photo workshop that promises to deliver on all fronts and you will return home not just having furthered your personal photographic skills but also with awesome images of Africa's big cats, including exceptional images of Africa's shyest big cat, the leopard! You will also see the endangered rhinoceros as well as all of Africa's wonderful and iconic creatures like Giraffe, zebra, hippopotamus and warthog to name but a few. This is also a 'big five safari' which means that you will photograph lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo all carrying out a wild existence in one of Africa's largest ecosystems.
We have timed this workshop to coincide with the African winter, when the the light is soft and golden. You will be taught how to photograph in super low light conditions, using flashes and spotlights at night! You will also be taught how to capture predator action, as we push the boundaries of modern-day digital photography! Accommodation is wonderfully comfortable in air conditioned suites and this is a good safari to bring non-photographing partners along on. Did I mention the hide we will be using, built exclusively for photographers?

Our Kenya Great Migration Safari needs no introduction! This is simply an African photographic safari that is especially timed for the annual wildebeest migration, aptly dubbed the “greatest wildlife show on earth”.
Both camps on this safari are handpicked by award winning wildlife photographer Greg du Toit, offering you the best chance to photograph wildebeest river crossings, superb predator action and sublime animal landscapes. You will get the full migration experience but you will also photograph in a private concession away from the vehicle traffic where we are able to drive off road! This Hemingway safari offers wide vistas filled with game and the chance to see one of the last large mammal migrations on the planet. Exceptional predator action on the great plains of East Africa will see you filling your memory cards faster than on any other safari! You also have an option to extend your safari by 3 days to include 'the great elephant herds of Mount Kilimanjaro'!

|Serengeti Calving and Chimpanzee Safari|
2- 9 March 2014 Serengeti Leg (3 spaces available for photographers)
27 Feb - 03 March 2014 Chimpanzee Leg (3 spaces available for photographers)
The Serengeti is in my opinion Africa's top wildlife park. Siringet means 'vast' in Maasai and as its name suggests, it is indeed endless! Not only is it vast but it is diverse, offering a mosaic of woodland and grassland habitats. But, like anywhere else in Africa, the time of year and where you choose to base yourself is what is going to make your photographic safari a success or not. I have spent the last 4 years searching for the right location and I have finally found it! On this safari you will enjoy the VERY best of the migration's calving season, in a private camp and far away from the maddening crowds around Lake Ndutu.
Afterwards, you have the option of journeying to Mahale National Park to trek chimpanzees. Again the time of year I have chosen has been carefully selected so that the chimpanzees are practically in camp, meaning there are not long trekking times. The camp we stay in is my favourite camp in all of Africa and situated on the remote shores of lake Tanganyika. It is the very definition of the word 'enchanting'!
