In May 2025, I am offering an intensive African wildlife masterclass with unprecedented ground-level photographic opportunities in Zululand. This masterclass workshop will see us based in an exclusive private game reserve for nine nights / ten days approximately three hours drive from Durban in South Africa. Durban is just a short one-hour flight from Johannesburg.

The game reserve is unique in Africa and is equipped with multiple state-of-the-art photographic hides that facilitate ground-level photographic opportunities with many of Africa's wildlife species in comfort and safety. There are overnight reflection hides for large mammals as well as lagoon and bird bath hides for birds, crocodiles, and more. The overnight hides are equipped with full bathroom facilities, a kitchenette for food preparation as well as beds for resting and sleeping. The hides are temperature controlled for comfort.

During this masterclass workshop, there will also be the opportunity to walk with and photograph Cheetahs at eye level without the requirement to be restricted to a safari vehicle like most camps.

This exclusive workshop is for a strictly limited number of just 14 participants plus a leader and is dedicated to photography of African wildlife at ground level. Additionally, there will be extensive photographic tuition on how to get the best wildlife photographs including how to get the best photographic results at night from the overnight hides.

This workshop is a full 'takeover' of the private game reserve which means you will have full access to the facilities on offer without having to share them with other groups. It also means multiple hide visits for everyone in the group without the usual restrictions. As we are based in the one-game reserve for the duration of the workshop, there are no restrictions on how much equipment you can bring - so bring what you need! If you are excited by the idea of photographing many of Africa's incredible species at ground level from luxurious private hides then now is the time to register your interest. Places are extremely limited and once spoken for that's it.
