Wildlife Photography Course

A 4-week placement guided by a professional photographer and provides practical wildlife photography deep in the South African Bush, showing you how to make a difference with your photography and contribute to the ongoing conservation.

What will I be doing?

You will be tutored by the onsite professional photographers who will conduct you through our intense course starting with the basics and taking you through different assignments to get a professional finish. You will be working in the workshop at the start of the program, showing you how to use the high-tech equipment and up to date programs, to bring your photos to life. You will also be taught how to edit using Adobe Lightroom.


The remaining time will be spent in a practical environment so you start producing competitive level photographs and using them to gain exposure. Your skills will improve rapidly throughout the program as you will be challenged to different assignments each focussing on different techniques. The end results will amaze you.

Our program also teaches you to work in an ethical manner such that the natural habitat isn’t disturbed.


You will be staying in a luxurious volunteer base camp on the banks of the Olifants River which is left open to the national park and allows frequent wildlife spotting from the viewing deck. You will share a lodge with other volunteers which has 2 cooked meals a day and a self-service breakfast, WiFi, hot showers, a swimming pool and an outdoor socialising area.



The Greater Kruger area is in the north-east of South Africa, it consists of over 20 private game reserves to form one vast reserve on the west side of the Kruger National Park which amounts to 5.5 million acres of unfenced land where African wildlife can roam freely such as lions, elephants, rhinos, cheetahs and wild dogs, just to name a few.
