The Kruger: A Photographic Safari

Comments Off on The Kruger: A Photographic Safari

The Kruger National Park is large. Very, very large. It sprawls over 18,989 square kilometres and is surrounded by Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

The peace park, the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, links the Kruger with Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park and with Limpopo’s National Park in Mozambique.

Whether you’re ready to traipse the African landscape just for the thrill of are on a photographic mission to get the perfect shot, the Kruger is the place to get your boots dusty. And for those who are looking to snap up some stunning images you’re in luck! You can sign up for a 10-day photographic safari into the Kruger National Park.

The trip is being run by Chimhavira Safaris and promises an impressive diversity of photographic subjects from incredible landscapes and striking animals of the bush to a medley of bird life. You’ll spend just over a week with a photographic guide who will help you to sharpen up or perfect your skills behind the camera.

The topics that will be covered included landscape, wildlife, action and macro photography and your skills in composition, depth of field, backlighting flash photography and panning and motion blur will be tested and hopefully improved along the way.

The trip starts on 14 February and runs until 23 February 2011. Guests will leave Linga Longa House in Johannesburg’s Kempton Park and spend the next 10 days traveling to Mac Mac Retreat, Setara, Lower Sabi, Skukuza, Pretoriuskop and back to Johannesburg.

All you need to do is organise your visa, pack your bag and make sure your camera is ready for action. Make sure you check with your home country’s embassy to make sure you know what documentation you will need.

The Chimhavira organisers suggest that if you have space in your bag you should bring along a bag of sweets and pens. These items are always asked for by the local children, and you’ll enjoy seeing their happy faces when you hand over a few. You could also use old clothes as bargaining tools with the adults; swap an old t-shirt for a piece of fresh fruit.
