Private Photographic Safari

Private Guided Safaris at Jamala.

Jamala Madikwe has always taken great pride in our professional guides however to enhance the Safari experience we often work with private guides who specialise in photography, helping you capture exceptional images.

The benefits of using a private guide

Accessibility: You will have access to your private guide throughout the safari, eliminating

the need to wait until game drive time to ask questions on wildlife or photography.

Education: Whatever your level of experience you can be assured of leaving a private

guided safari with new skills, techniques and inspiration. All of our private guides are

involved in the various photography courses and workshops that we run and will

incorporate this educational aspect into every private safari. This includes portfolio reviews

and assistance with editing of images.

Time: Having the time to focus on the sightings and experiences that you want to focus on

is priceless and your guide will assist in maximising these moments in the field.

Qualified: Private guides are qualified and experienced in the

guiding and hospitality industries.

To enhance your Safari experience please contact us direct and we will assist you with availability and costs involved.

  • Madikwe Game Reserve. 
A true sanctuary for all species that find solace here. The lucky few who visit, those who can be still, those who allow themselves to experience, those few will observe her resplendent vivacity in moments of unsurpassed serenity and quiet beauty. .

  • 'But perhaps the most important lesson I learned is that there are no walls between humans and the elephants except those that we put up ourselves, and that until we allow not only elephants, but all living creatures their place in the sun, we can never be whole ourselves'.
Lawrence Anthony, The Elephant Whisperer. .

  • Last week on drive at Jamala Madikwe.
Head Guide J.P. captured a beautiful image of this little Leopard female called Dineo. The Jamala guides have completed a photographic course last month with Michael Laubscher from Wild-eye. The images have certainly improved and we are excited to see the rest of their work. #wildeyesa @michael.laubscher
