AFRICAN WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY AND CONSERVATION PROJECT – ‘A life changing experience’

‘Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory’

 

Embark on the adventure of a lifetime while learning from a professional photographer how to improve your wildlife photography skills in an area known for its spectacular scenery and iconic wildlife.

This project is based in the Greater Kruger Area of South Africa – famous for its breath-taking scenery and wildlife, as well as its protection efforts to save these species and preserve their natural habitats.

The park is home to approximately 145 mammal species, and you’re likely to see the African big game, including elephant, black and white rhino, hippopotamus, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, warthog and many antelope species.

In this breath taking setting participants will have the opportunity to enhance their photographic skills while raising awareness within the local community of conservation issues and solutions taking place around them.    For anyone who has always wanted to take amazing wildlife photographs, there is no better place in the world.

Embark on the adventure of a lifetime!

Martina Baumeler has recently returned from the experience and this is what she had to say …

A life changing experience!

“Being very passionate about photography, having the chance to improve my photography skills and being surrounded by beautiful nature and wildlife were only some of the many reasons why I decided to participate in this wildlife photography and conservation project. Taking photos for wildlife conservation is something I always dreamed of and I feel very privileged that Amanzi Travel gave me the golden opportunity to do so.

Throughout my stay in South Africa I was lucky enough to experience what it means to be a professional wildlife conservation photographer. I had the opportunity to participate in a photography workshop week, be out on game drive nearly every single day to practice our photography skills, work together with researchers to help them get identification shots of certain species and learn all about the wildlife that we were surrounded by and how human-wildlife conflict threatens its existence. Moreover, we got the chance to go on night drives, slept in the middle of the bush and did astrophotography, learned a lot about photo editing in Lightroom, had the chance to some fundraising with our pictures and were given the opportunity to write an article for a local newspaper.

Thanks to the amazing photographers Sophie and Sam I was able to improve my photography skills by miles. They taught us photography volunteers so many important skills in order to establish ourselves as photographers. It is admirable how much energy they put in conservation photography. They really made me fall in love with wildlife photography.

 

Therefore I would like to thank Amanzi Travel and all the guides, photographers, members of the staff and all the wonderful people I met during my stay in South Africa for making this experience so special. I think it is incredible to see how hard all these people work in order to protect the amazing nature and wildlife of South Africa.

I truly had an amazing and life changing experience in South Africa and I feel very privileged that I had the opportunity to be part of such a great project”

A truly life changing experience, working on wildlife and community volunteering projects in Africa over eight years ago, convinced Gemma Whitehouse to give up her job as a Marketing Manager for an international organisation and use her skills and expertise to set up a company that would offer others the same amazing opportunities with a service second to none - thus Amanzi Travel was born.
