Luangwa Photo Safaris was founded in 2018 by avid wildlife photographers, Jacholeen Kruger and Dawie Maree. Named for the Luangwa valley, a place special to their hearts, Luangwa Photo Safaris believes that small intimate groups are key for quality interaction and excellent photographic opportunities.

Each of our set tours and custom packages are led by a skilled, qualified guide and an accomplished wildlife photographer to give you the very best possible wildlife photography experience.
