With experienced guides and comfortable vehicles kitted with bean bags, you will be perfectly placed to take the best advantage of the excellent photographic safaris presented.

Open vehicle tops allow unobstructed views of the wildlife, landscape, towering canopy of vegetation and birds – perched or in flight – ensuring great photographic opportunities from every angle.

For the photographer, Remote Africa Safaris offers private photographic safaris guided by Bryan Jackson, who is both an experienced guide and a professional photographer. Bryan may be pre-booked and this comes at an additional cost.

Photographic tips


For close up shots use Macro or Extension tubes (use a tripod with these lenses)

  • Wide angle (18mm-50mm) – best for landscapes.
  • Telephoto (80mm-300mm) – lenses bigger than 300mm may require a tripod or bean bag (bean bags are supplied in all game viewing vehicles).

Camera Bag

  • Protection for your camera and equipment is necessary. Remember to take your camera equipment on the plane as carry-on luggage.


  • Always travel with spares. Batteries can be recharged at communal charging areas in all of the bush camps.


  • Bring a blower, brush and cloth to clean off the dust.


  • A good tripod may be difficult to travel with, consider bringing a lightweight monopod.


  • Polarizing filters increase colour contrast saturation, remove reflection and darken blue skies (although they may absorb some of the light).
  • Manual focus cameras use a Linear Polarizer.
  • Most auto focus cameras use a Circular Polarizer.
