About this trip

If you’re craving unique photographic possibilities with staggering natural lighting, with raw, unedited wildlife encounters and jaw-dropping potential for photography, this authentic Southern Africa safari and bush experience will not disappoint. 

For ten days our small group will explore the world-renowned Mana Pools National Park in northern Zimbabwe. Mana Pools is often referred to as ‘Magical Mana’ and once you experience it’s wonderful diversity you will soon see why. Mana promises to give you up-close wildlife encounters not only by vehicle but also on foot which makes for unique photographic potential.

This remote, pristine wilderness area is home to a myriad of species such as African wild dogs, elephants, lions, leopards and a plethora of antelope… not to mention the amazing bird life. The region will provide breathtaking sunrises and sunsets as we explore, appreciating the wildlife and how it has adapted to living in this remarkable area.

We meet in Harare, before travelling to the southern regions of Mana Pools to an area called Chitake Springs where African wild dogs and lions wait for cautious herds of buffalo and antelope to come and drink from one of the only permanent water sources for miles around.

From the Springs, we travel north to the banks of the Zambezi River where giant fig trees dwarf even the largest elephants, with prides of lions and packs of African wild dogs, hippos and the magnificent kudu and eland antelopes all roaming close by.

Your safari is much more than travelling to places far and wild. It’s about immersing you in the environment, giving you the best, most intimate experience with every detail taken in to consideration. Reaching fantastic places, searching for beautiful and inspiring aspects of wildlife and the natural world. All are key to helping you capture more thought provoking images.
