Zimbabwe is a country that defies odds and despite suffering a destroyed economy, the wildlife is surviving and the country has arguably the best safari guides on the continent! You will especially experience this on any Zimbabwe Mana Pools photo safari, or a Chitake Springs photo safari or a Hwange photo safari.


A Zimbabwe photo safari is the most adventurous safari you can do because you will get to see and photograph large wild animals, while you are out of the safari truck.


Not being in a vehicle on a Zimbabwe photo safari really changes things and elevates adrenaline levels and no more so than on a Chitake Springs photo safari or a Zimbabwe Mana Pools photo safari. It is not that it is dangerous, the Zimbabwe photo safari guides are some of the best trained in Africa. In fact, it is because they are so well trained that you will get to experience wildlife on foot on your Zimbabwe private photo safari.


A Zimbabwe photo safari will see you taking in the vast plains of Hwange National Park where you will be gently introduced to the wild environment as photography is mainly done from a vehicle on this leg of your Zimbabwe photo safari. Your Hwange photo safari includes herds of Roan and Sable antelope and this is an indication of just how remote and wild this park is. A Hwange photo safari is also the best chance of seeing lion hunt elephant!


Your heart will race and you will feel like you have experienced the ultimate in terms of wildlife experiences.

Exploring Lake Kariba and photographing wild sunsets filled with dead trees is a classic Zimbabwe photo safari experience.  Heading further east on a Zimbabwe Mana Pools photo safari, your safari will take a truly wild turn. Photographing elephants and wild dog on foot is simply the norm on any Zimbabwe Mana Pools photo safari. Staking out remote wild pans and springs like on a Chitake Springs photo safari, you will experience Africa’s wildlife in a new way – on foot! The camps can be basic on a Zimbabwe photo safari but the wild encounters are simply exhilarating. The wildest place I have ever camped is in the backwaters of Mana Pools National Park and on a bespoke Chitake Springs photo safari itinerary, we will spend a night or two fly camping at this special location on your Zimbabwe private photo safari.

If getting up close and personal with Africa’s wild animals is what you want, then a Zimbabwe private photo safari is the one for you.

Bespoke Photographic Safari Guest Testimonials

'It was such a privilege to spend a week with Greg. On all levels he is a joy to spend time in the bush with. Its really apparent through his passion, knowledge and talent why he was The Wildlife Photographer of the Year. We had some amazing sightings. From following mating leopards for 5 hours on my birthday to packs of wild dogs, cheetahs, and 19 different leopards. Oh, and two snakes! And of course, spending some time with Claire was very special to us.'

Deborah Keener Brown (USA)
'Dear Greg, the training and experience with you has been even better than we expected. You bring out the best of Africa as you teach us each day to appreciate the animals and capture the best moments with pictures. You are patient and professional and we look forward to another journey with you. Best to you, Bob 'the camera caddy' and Jacquie.'

Bob and Jacquie Paul (USA)
'Hey Greg, It took three days to download and organize my 5412 files! You blew me away with your kindness, graciousness, and expertise. Okay, so now I am bit and I can't wait to go back. The wild is the only thing that makes sense and I understand what motivates you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for introducing me to your world and for sharing your experience, strength, and hope for the future of conservation.'

Nell Dickerson (USA)
'Greg, thanks so much for the outstanding private safari in the Okavango Delta. The itinerary that you developed gave us a terrific mix of magical Delta experiences, with fine camps and excellent local guides. The most important ingredient in this terrific experience, however, was you. On the photographic front, we were inspired by your commitment to artistic creativity and excellence, as well as ethical practices, in the capturing of wildlife images and greatly appreciated your graciously shared world class photographic expertise. We were delighted to find that you are also a knowledgeable naturalist, with wide-ranging expertise and engaging stories (and a voluminous reference library on your phone!) about both the fauna and the flora of Africa. We were encouraged by your commitment to conservation! We look forward eagerly to joining you in the Masai Mara next year and in the South Rift Valley!'

Mark and Bonnie Overgaard (USA)
'Since our very first contact, Greg gave me lots of advices about safari destinations and about photography. He always answered my hundreds mail (sorry Greg 😉 ) helping me to find and book the best travel for shooting hippos and to buy some photographic stuffs I have never seen before. I have known a man who really loves Africa and wildlife and most important, who knows lot of things about Africa and wildlife, but at the same time you can talk to him as you talk to one of your friend. I dont write about his knowledge of photo gears and technique as it would be superfluous. I can only say that my skill level is increased by several steps. His advices during safaris were, in my opinion, the best part of my entire time spent in Kenya. During my time spent in the bush, I really feel myself like a photographer, not like a tourist. Thank you, thank you so much!'

Nicola Cappelletti (Italy)
'We all really enjoyed our family photographic safari with you in Zambia. The Lower Zambezi is a beautiful destination and the most scenic we have seen so far. Robin and I have improved our photographic capabilities which we hopefully won't lose till we see you again😁. Thank you for the personal message in your wonderful AWE book. Have fun with your next trips and hope to see you again soon.' See the adventure on YouTube

'Good morning Greg. I trust you got home safely. Thanks for being such an incomparable guide and company. See you in February, if not before (maybe October).'
