Africa Photo Tour / Workshop

A Total African Photo Safari Experience

SOLD OUT for 2024

Experience the adventure of a lifetime in Africa. Teeming with wildlife you'll soon discover why some would describe this as the homeland where all life originated from. Embark on this photo safari workshop and marvel at the wonders of this world in an international photography workshop that captures the heart of South Africa and Botswana.

This coming year - enjoy one of two separate excursions to Africa or combine both, back to back for an unforgettable lifetime experience. One of the advantages of our workshops is that we have exclusivity while at the respective lodges listed below. That means that it will only be our group present during our stay.

Every evening you’ll appreciate the highest quality in accommodations, both in the culinary offerings and the intimacy found in the camps and lodges utilized for this life-changing experience that is Africa! Fantastic for the non-photographer as well, this journey holds an amazing itinerary and a price that no one can match for the experiences we provide.

Whether you find yourself in the heart of South Africa, Botswana, or both, we welcome you to immerse yourself into this African photo tour excursion that will truly change the way you think about and appreciate this life!

Join Christopher Balmer as he hosts this workshop and takes you on a photographic journey through the heart of Africa. Christopher will also be instructing on how to master your camera throughout the workshop.

For the traveler who has never been to Africa, excitement swells up within, waiting to experience what some would describe as the homeland where all life originated from. For those who have been here before, a sense of returning home, to a land imbued with deep wonder and awe. Even the most skilled writer cannot describe the intensity of reverence and marvel that accompany this land and its inhabitants.

From the moment you set foot onto this continent, your life is changed, and suddenly your eyes are opened.

The guides who accompany us are the very best on the entire continent. Their ability to bring you safely through this photo tour safari experience and provide you with very up-close encounters with the wildlife will impact greatly both the quality of your adventure as well as the quality of your photography. With only one person to a bench in our vehicles, you will have the least obstructed views of the highest density of leopards in all of Africa. Lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes, impala, baboons, monkeys, hyenas, African wild dogs, buffalo, and a myriad of birds can all be encountered in this small group photo tour to South Africa.
