Due to many enquiries regarding Private Vehicle and Guide availability in recent times we decided to add a custom-built photography vehicle to our fleet of Safari Vehicles. For those seeking space, comfort and lower photography angles this vehicle is hard to beat.
The ultra-comfortable setup can seat up to 4 guests for standard safari drives, with more spacious seating, a padded bin between seats where all your additional equipment can be placed within easy reach, and adjustable padded armrests which slide up and down to double as camera support. The biggest drawcard of this vehicle though is for usage of a pair of photographers, where two opening ports offer significantly lower and immersive photography angles on subjects which simply cannot be approached on foot. A pair of removable mattresses are at hand if you choose to lie down in wait for the action to happen. The use of a beanbag is recommended which allows free movement of your lens through the ample space provided for low angle photography. Recommended lenses for this vehicle are longer lenses in the range of 200-400mm, with a wide-angle lens on standby in the bin between the seats
This Private Vehicle and Guide can be booked at an additional cost at the Lodge on a per-vehicle basis, and per session as required. With the vehicle only hosting two photographers for low-level photography availability is therefore limited.
Vehicle safaris can extend into the evening, and subject lighting from multiple vehicles can be arranged at additional cost. Another after-hours activity is late night astro-and landscape photography which can be arranged with your guide. Please enquire with your ranger about this whilst you are here
