On our safaris, in addition to classic game drives, you can always expect some extras that will elevate your experience beyond expectations. Here are our Top 4 safari extras to look out for 2019.
Professional Photography Hides
The shots we can create from specialist photography hides are unlike anything we can capture otherwise, and Zimanga Private Game Reserve in South Africa offers hands down the best combination of hides we have ever seen.
An added bonus of hide sessions is that they are the least strenuous safari activity and require only the most basic fitness level.

Walking With Wildlife
Mana Pools in Zimbabwe is the most renowned reserve in Africa for encounters on foot with wildlife, while in Alaska the chance to meet grizzly bears on the ground is unmissable. Walking makes for a great variety in your shots and is a hugely exciting experience. It is also a great chance to savour the small gems and details of the bush with your macro lens.

Water Based Photography Sessions
Gain a unique perspective for your shots by encountering key species such as elephant and hippo in the Okovango, and grizzly bears in Alaska at eye level in their natural habitat. Traditional dugout canoe, specialist photography boat and drift platform are amazing ways to access these animals and capture unique behavioural shots.
