Destination 1:  Zimanga Private Game Reserve - 5 Nights

The first leg of the photo safari will be in the heart of historic Zululand at a Private Game Reserve. Zimanga is the first reserve in Africa designed for avid safari enthusiasts whilst simultaneously satisfying the needs of modern wildlife photographers of any level, both who prefer a deeper appreciation of the bush and crave an unhurried exclusive experience. Spread over nearly 70 square kilometers of pristine Zululand bushveld, fever tree forests and rolling hills, Zimanga is bisected by the Mkuze River and home to a splendid variety of animals and birds. Species including lion, elephant, leopard and cheetah roam freely across the region and can with luck be tracked down for unparalleled game viewing and photographic opportunities.


Destination 2:  iSimangaloiso Wetlands Park - 3 Nights

The second leg of the safari is at the iSimangaliso Wetland Park which was listed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site (UNESCO) in December 1999 in recognition of its superlative natural beauty and unique global values. Situated in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, this Wetland Park covers an incredible 332,000 hectares. iSimangaliso means “a place of wonder, miracles and wildlife.” It is the largest Estuarine system in Africa (St Lucia Estuary) that supports more than 520 bird species including seasonal migrants. The second highest vegetated sand dunes are just some of the incredible sightings in iSimangaliso Wetland Park.
