South Africa Photographic Safaris

We can custom cater a Photo Safari depending on the desires of the clients.  Our photo safaris take place from August until March of each year.  This is a great time to visit South Africa as the flights are much less expensive these months, it is swimming pool and shorts weather, and we have Air Conditioning.
