"I didn't choose photography, photography chose me" - Gerardo Suter
Field guides are the knowledgeable and inspirational individuals who connect you with nature during your safari. The guides at Kariega love to show guests the wonderful wildlife, insects and birds plus ensure that everyone enjoys their African safari experience.
The passionate Kariega safari guides spend a huge amount time in the bush and are always observing and questioning how the natural systems work and interact. As a result, many guides develop a keen interest in photography and spend many hours honing this skill.

If you are a photography enthusiast then you may want to add a private, tailor-made photo safari to your stay. Each experience is customised according to the requirements of each guest.
Each specialised photo safari is led by an experienced guide photographer in a private dedicated vehicle rigged specifically for photographic equipment. The photographic guide is also a qualified ranger and interacts with guests before, during, between and after game drives to ensure amazing photo opportunities and that all questions are answered.
Hands-on advice including composition, technical assistance and post-production is also included.
