With over thirty years experience of operating safaris in Africa under our belts we’re confident that we have the necessary expertise to help you design your perfect trip, but we’ll need your help.
We know Africa, but you know what you want. To design the best safari for you we need your input. Together we can create the ideal safari in Africa for you.
Our own expertise is backed up by our teams on the ground in Africa where you’ll stay in carefully selected lodges and travel with expert guides keen to share their enthusiasm for this amazing continent and its wildlife.
Africa is a vast continent with 55 countries and, although between us we have visited 26 of them, we’ve chosen to specialize in just a few.
For us, and for you, it is important that we have extensive knowledge of the countries we work in and so we concentrate on just 7 countries for our safaris.
We specialize in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and Mali.
The first 6 are obvious choices but why Mali?
Easy; as well as having some of the most fascinating and impressive cultural experiences in Africa (The Dogon, Mopti and the Great Mosque of Djenne), Mali is also home to Africa’s most northerly herd of elephants. We support The Mali Elephant Project and these migratory elephants are an integral part of our journeys in Mali.
Anyone seeking a memorable African safari experience; we design and arrange safaris for photographers and non photographers.
Absolutely not. Although we made our name planning and operating photographic safaris we are equally happy to design a safari for those with other interests. Whether you are a keen photographer or simply want first class service from a team that knows Africa, give us a call.
Africa is a wonderful destination for families. Our family safaris are ideal for families looking for a holiday that combines wildlife, adventure and cultural interaction; great for keeping active children entertained.
Over the years we’ve stayed in some wonderful camps and lodges and would love to recommend them to you. But if you have something specific in mind for your safari just tell us what it is and we’ll do our best to find it for you.
Our preference, wherever possible, is to avoid larger hotels and lodges in favour of those with real character, but you can be sure that we will find you the best blend of location and comfort that your budget allows. We believe that the places you stay should be a memorable part of your safari, not just somewhere to sleep.
For the ultimate safari experience we recommend a private safari, designed specially for you, based around a private vehicle with your own driver/guide so you don’t have to compromise on space and can enjoy game viewing at your own pace in the company of your chosen travelling companions. However, if meeting other safari-goers is all part of the holiday for you, then sharing game drive vehicles can help keep costs down.
It is important for you to have peace of mind that any money paid to Wildlife Photography Africa in respect of a booking you make with us is secure.
Wildlife Photography Africa is bound by Regulation 16 of the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 to make certain arrangements to provide security for the refund of money paid over by consumers and for the repatriation of consumers in the event of insolvency of Wildlife Photography Africa.

One of the very best examples of community based conservation; The Mali Elephant Project works hand in hand with local communities in the remote Gourma region of Mali. Tribal conflict and terrorist incidents are a real threat to the survival of Africa’s northernmost herd of elephants.
