There are 7 days in a week, and *Someday* isn’t one of them.

What are you waiting for?

Is an African Photo Safari on your bucket list, but you’re afraid of the cost? Do you want to see the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, Cape buffalo) in the wild African Bush before they are all gone? What about sitting quietly, face-to-face, with endangered Mountain Gorillas and Chimpanzees in the mountains of Uganda? See the excitement of the Great Migration on the Serengeti or Mara, or black-maned lions in the red sands of the Kalahari? Would you like to take breathtaking photos of wild animals, the kind you see in NatGeo, but aren’t sure how to get what’s in your mind to the camera?

How would you like to go on safari and be personally mentored by award-winning, published wildlife photographers Ernest Porter and Karen Blackwood? You spent the money on the cameras –we’ll teach you how to use them in any mode, because “P” does not actually stand for Professional 🙂

We will teach you all of our tricks, help you with your settings, suggest composition and framing, tell you what to look for in every situation. That’s what we do. We are a lot of fun, passionate about wildlife, and we love teaching people how to take terrific photos while sharing Africa’s greatest treasures. We personally lead small group safaris on amazing adventures at an affordable price. We specialize in finding and photographing the Big 5, Big Cats, and Beautiful Birds in South Africa, Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, USA, Japan, and Peru. If you want to feel like you’re in the middle of a nature documentary and take home the photos to prove it, you’ll want to come with us!

Here’s a secret…not a photographer? Just want to shoot with your iPhone? Want to simply enjoy watching wildlife? Photo safari vehicles are always in the best spots, with the most active animals, and have the best view because we can get close up to wildlife. We have room for you, too, and we welcome you! We are all on safari to watch wildlife, to relax and have fun, and to come away with beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime memories, whether in print or in our mind’s eye.

Can we help you plan your dream safari and stay in your budget? Just ask us! You can join a scheduled safari or let us plan a trip custom-tailored to your group’s wishes on dates that work for you. No other safari company offers one of our special services: we will help you plan your entire trip, including travel to the lodge from anywhere in the world. We’ll take the stress out of the unknown so all you have to do is show up. We base out of beautiful Lodges with a delicate footprint on the environment. You’ll eat like a king, sleep like a baby, and relax like you never imagine, while being pampered by local staff and surrounded by the beauty of nature. We’re always available to answer questions whether by email, Skype, WhatsApp, or old-fashioned phone calls.

By the way, we also offer local tours if you have a few extra hours in Johannesburg, South Africa. Would you like to see the iconic Black Eagles flying over the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens? Ernest is a staff photographer. He can help you photograph Makatsa and Thulane, the world-famous resident Black Eagle pair, at any time of the year. The Eagles should hatch a chick soon. Our local tours include pick up and drop off service in Johannesburg and Sandton, and we can also take you to the Cradle of Mankind, Rhino & Lion Nature Park, Soweto, and more.
