​Capturing unforgettable moments in the African bush

The yawn of a magnificent male lion. The blur of a leopard as he pounces on his prey. The flash of bright colour as a lilac breasted roller flies from its perch. Special moments in the African bush can be fleeting: gone in the blink of an eye.

This is a place where the value of a high quality camera and lens is priceless, immortalising these moments in time, evoking vivid memories of your African safari as you look at the photograph hung proudly on your wall.

 For experienced photographers, lugging heavy camera equipment from one side of the world to the other can be a tiresome and stressful task. Alternatively, hobbyist photographers or novices without premium equipment may wish to delve deeper into the world of safari photography, without paying the hefty price tag for a professional camera or lens.

 As the only photographic company situated in the gateway to the Kruger National Park and world-famous Big Five reserves such as the Sabi Sands and Timbavati, Africa Photographic Services can conveniently supply top-of-the-range Nikon and Canon cameras, lenses and accessories to tourists visiting these spectacular wilderness areas. After arriving at OR Thambo International Airport in Johannesburg, tourists will most likely fly into the KMIA, Hoedspruit or Skukuza airports, or take a road transfer to their final destinations.

 Africa Photographic Services can deliver premium equipment to any one of these airports, or directly to the lodge which you choose to stay at. For tourists who want to learn more about how to capture extraordinary photographs that capture extraordinary moments, the company can also provide expert photographic tutoring, showing you all of the tips and techniques. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a truly in-depth, practical experience with a professional photographer, you can book a private photographic safari which is guaranteed to leave you with unforgettable wildlife images.

Africa Photographic Services has a complement of five permanent staff and various freelancers, all of whom have years of hands-on experience in the African bush and can attend to a client’s needs at a moment’s notice.

These photographers can share one of their most valuable skills; knowledge of animal behaviour. Knowing when a lion is about to hunt, when an elephant is about to flap its ears or when an eagle is about to spread its wings allows photographers to anticipate and prepare for the hallowed ‘money shot’.

On returning to the lodge, guests can sit with the photographer as he does Photoshop or Lightroom processing, fine-tuning your picture into a work of art. After an exceptional safari, guests leave with the photographs of lifetime, without the burden of weighty and expensive camera equipment on their shoulders.

 Spread your images on social media, show them to loved ones, show the world the wonders of an African safari. You may inspire a whole new group of enthusiasts to undertake a safari to Africa, and to capture their own magnificent photographs of this wildly beautiful land.
