  • KwaZulu Natal Wildlife Photographic Safari - South Africa
    Overview What ever your level of photographic experience, whether you are a beginner looking to improve your technique or a seasoned professional looking to expand your portfolio – This workshop is aimed at giving you the opportunity to observe behaviour and capture images of African fauna in its natural environment. This Earth Creative Expeditions tour will be hosted by Alex Roldan. He will be with you throughout your journey, adding his professional expertise to your experience – Offer insights, mentor-ship and knowledge as artistic and photographic wildlife guides to enrich your expedition. We will spend time focusing on various endangered species, without rushing from sighting to sighting (unless something exciting is unfolding and it is deemed worth leaving one sighting to head to another). This considered approach is designed to enable you to learn about a species’ habits, relationships with each other and also other species they share the wilderness with – giving you more thought-provoking, emotional and storytelling images. Our expedition will be situated in the heart of one of South Africa’s most diverse regions and take us to three different reserves in Kwa-Zulu Natal. All three are located within a reasonable commute from each other – meaning less time is spent travelling and more time is spent doing what you love, capturing images of stunning wildlife. Expedition highlights: • Eight nights on safari • Three different game reserves • Opportunity to observe and photograph the magnificent seven • Six guests maximum • Use of state of the art photography hides at Zimanga Private Game Reserve • On-foot walking safari with a trained, professional guide for a natural perspective of the African wilderness • Tuition and insightful behaviour information with qualified professional, wildlife photographic safari guide • Includes all meals, reserve conservation fees and accommodation • Two wildlife photography activities daily* • Game drives conducted on open-air safari vehicles Full itineray: Day One – Arrive and meet in Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport. We will spend the first evening relaxing at the accommodation in Johannesburg, discussing the itinerary, any last minute details or queries. This will also be an opportunity to check through any equipment you may have hired in South Africa. Day Two – After breakfast we return to OR Tambo Airport to catch our connecting flight to Durban followed by a ground transfer to Zulu Nyala Private Game Reserve. We aim to arrive a little after lunch, allowing time to have a light bite to eat, relax, take a breath and then head out for our first game drive. Day Three – An early morning game drive, followed by a mid-morning bush walk – enabling you to experience the African wilderness the way nature intended – on foot. Then returning to the lodge for lunch and a mid-day rest. We will head out for our second safari of the day towards the latter stages of the afternoon. Day Four – Early morning game drive. Then, after breakfast, checkout and transfer to our next facility, Bayete Zulu which is situated on Zululand Rhino Reserve. It is an approximate 45 minute transfer, but we will aim to leave by 09h30 to get you there in plenty of time to check in to your new accommodation. You will have time to relax in your surroundings before heading out on a late afternoon game drive. Day Five – We will head out to explore the vastness of Zululand Rhino Reserve for the duration of the day – taking a packed lunch, supplies and plenty of water. The day will be ours, spending valuable observation time with the species which we encounter, potentially including a little landscape photography. Depending on sightings, we may well be back at the lodge after dark. Day Six – An early morning drive – returning to the lodge for breakfast and check out before catching our transfer to our final location; Zimanga Private Game Reserve. We aim to be there before 13h00 which will enable you to relax a little before we head out on our afternoon activity. Activities on Zimanga Private Game Reserve will consist of vehicle based game drives and photography hide sessions. We will delegate activities thereby ensuring a fair-use policy for everyone. Game drives and the majority of hide sessions are between 3-4 hours duration. The overnight hide experience is between 15-18 hours with catering and rest facilities provided. Day Seven – Either an early morning game drive or hide session. The afternoon activity will be dependant on the availability of Zimanga’s overnight hide. Part of the group will head out on an afternoon activity and the others will spend the night in the hide. Day Eight – Either an early morning game drive or hide session (those spending the night in the hide may be excused from this morning activity if they choose!). Afternoon game drive or hide session for the people that spent the first night in the hide and the other group will head to the overnight hide. Day Nine – Early morning activity, either a game drive or a hide session with the afternoon activity in the same format. The last evening we would like to invite you to a farewell group dinner. Day Ten – Early morning drive before check out, ground transfer to Durban airport and catching connecting flights home from Johannesburg OR Tambo. If you would like to extend your stay, we are more than happy to make recommendations and assist with the organisation of additional itineraries. Disclaimer: Scheduled itinerary and activities may be subject to change due to external factors beyond our control. Every effort will be made to provide suitable alternatives where ever possible.

About Red Bull Air Race: The Red Bull Air Race World Championship is an official World Championship, accredited by the FAI – The World Air Sports Federation. The Red Bull Air Race features the world's best racing pilots in a pure motorsport competition that combines speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile, lightweight raceplanes, pilots hit speeds of 370kph while enduring forces of up to 10G as they navigate a low level slalom track marked by 25-metre-high, air-filled pylons. Devised by the Red Bull sports think-tank, the initial goal was to create the most advanced aerial challenge the world had ever seen; what has evolved into the Red Bull Air Race we know today has far exceeded any original expectations. It is a visual spectacle unlike any other. A combination of high speed, low altitude and extreme manoeuvrability make it only accessible to the world's most exceptional pilots. 14 pilots are competing in the Master Class category in eight races across the globe for the title of 2018 Red Bull Air Race World Champion. The objective is to navigate an aerial racetrack featuring air-filled pylons in the fastest possible time, incurring as few penalties as possible. Pilots can win World Championship points at each race and the pilot with the most points after the last race of the season becomes the Red Bull Air Race World Champion. The standardised propulsion package – a high-performance, race-tuned standardised engine and standardised propellers – remains for 2018. The Challenger Cup also returns for 2018, The Challenger Cup offers a new generation of talented pilots from around the world a chance to experience the thrills of the sport. 10 outstanding pilots from nine different nations will be racing for Challenger Cup points.
