Photo Safaris in South Africa

5 Star Photographic Safaris South Africa from $2500

Africa Hunt Lodge now offers African Photo Safaris

5 Star Luxury for Wildlife Photographer enthusiasts

You will not stay in a tented camp for this Africa Photo Safari. We will host you at Kudu Valley Safari Lodge...the Premier 5 Star lodge of Africa. We can custom cater this Photo Safari depending on the desires of the clients.  

Our African photographic safaris take place from August until March of each year.  This is a great time to visit South Africa for a Wildlife Photographic opportunity as the flights are much less expensive these months, it is swimming pool season and shorts weather, and we have Air Conditioning in our Bespoke suites at Kudu Valley Safari Lodge.   The best part of this Photo Safari with Kudu Valley Safari Lodge is that you will get to see 3 different parks in 5 days for Wildlife Viewing and we are close to Johannesburg (no other flights to take).  You will see the Big 5, and many other species while on this trip.
