Simbavati Photographic Safaris are run in association with Africa Photographic Services and are open to novices, keen amateurs as well as experienced photographers. Any make of camera may be used and a survey is sent out prior to each safari to determine specific interests, type of equipment and level of experience. This in order to enable a tailor-made photographic experience specific to each guest's needs. Photographic equipment of Nikon and Canon can be rented by prior arrangement and a limited range of accessories, including memory cards, is available to purchase at the lodge.
As the course will also cover editing photos taken, it is recommend to bring a laptop, notebook or tablet, card readers and sufficient memory cards.
The groups are very small, which means individual attention is guaranteed; therefore all levels of photographers would be catered for even in a varied group.
Dates outside the guaranteed departures can be booked at the same rates with a minimum of 4 paying photographers.
Private use: The specialised vehicle can also be booked privately on a daily basis with or without a professional instructor. Please request a quotation via e-mail, phone or the form on this website.
Professional host: Professional wildlife photographers wanting to host their own group on the specialised photographic vehicle are welcome to do so. Kindly contact the reservations office to obtain a rate.
