In June 2026, I will lead a first-time workshop for Leopards and other African cats for just ten photographers to the Valley of the Leopard in South Luangwa, Zambia.

We will be based in Chikunto in South Luangwa Park for this workshop and staying in a luxury tented camp. Chikunto Safari Lodge is ideally located inside South Luangwa National Park, a 50-minute game drive from the National Park's Mfuwe gate. With panoramic views out over the Luangwa River and flanked by rolling plains, plateaus, and miombo vegetation, the camp/lodge is located in an area of distinctive natural beauty and in a location renowned for its density and variety of wildlife. Temperatures at this time of year will hover around 25º-35º Celsius.

We will use 4WD safari vehicles to commute from our camp and search the terrain for the leopards and other cats. We will also have walking safari options for ground and eye-level photography. All transfers, all meals, tailored game viewing activities (day and night) / walking safaris / cultural excursions, and all drinks (excluding premium brands and discretionary gratuities) are included in the workshop cost.

Leopards are among the hardest-to-find wild cats on earth. All participants understand that there are no guarantees. However, every effort will be made to see and photograph Leopards using local guides and trackers skilled at locating the cats.
