The company was founded in 2018 by Jacholeen Kruger and Dawie Maree, both avid wildlife photographers.

Although the name says Luangwa Photo Safaris, the plan was always to expand to the rest of Southern Africa.

Our goal is to have small intimate groups to allow for quality interaction and excellent photographic opportunities.

We have Set date tours that will run specific dates and we have Custom tours that will be organised according to the photographer’s needs. More information on the Photographic Safaris page.

The photographic safaris will be conducted by an experienced qualified guide and an experienced wildlife photographer all with one goal in mind, to give you the best possible wildlife photography experience. Max 5 photographers and the photographic tour leader, so max 6 people on a vehicle.
