Embrace Nature

The journey begins with a shared lunch to break the ice. Then, your group meets with a designated ranger before starting your first game drive together. The vehicles we use are specifically tailored to create an environment that’s completely focused on photography.

Wildlife photographers

You’ll be exposed to Ryan’s wildlife guiding and photography skills, as well as his hospitality, coupled with Iky’s in-depth technical knowledge of photography. This combination covers all the bases when it comes to an outdoor learning experience that shouldn’t be missed.

After you and your group have taken as many photographs as you’d like to, Ryan and Iky offer advice on how to improve your skills.
