Tswalu introduces photographic safaris with specialist guide

Posted on 20 June 2023 By David Henning

Tswalu has introduced a photographic safari experience for guests with a special interest in wildlife photography with expert guide, Trevor Kleyn.

Trevor is a dedicated and specialist photographic guide combining his extensive bush knowledge and experience as a qualified nature and lead trails guide with his passion for wildlife photography.

The dramatic topography of the Korannaberg mountains, the arid savannah, and the characteristic red dunes of the Kalahari make Tswalu a prime destination for iconic wildlife and landscape photography at any time of the year.

Photographic tuition is offered for all levels, from novice to experienced photographers. Novices will benefit from hands-on guidance when it comes to the basics, while experienced photographers will enjoy the excellent photo opportunities presented in the company of Trevor.

Kleyn honed his photography skills in destinations across Africa as well as in Iceland, Argentina, New Zealand, and the USA, and at Tswalu provides expert advice and hands-on tuition to guests who want to up their skills.

When booking a day with Trevor, use of Tswalu’s fully equipped photographic safari vehicle is included. The modified vehicle is geared to meet the needs of a solo photographer but has plenty of space for a second guest.

A rotating swivel seat allows for an uninterrupted, 270-degree arc and can be locked into position. The seat is fitted with a stabilising arm and platform for taking sharp, steady images, even with a long lens. There are also brackets, slings and bean bags to assist with stability and sharpness. Hatches cut into the sides of the vehicle allow the photographer to lie flat on a firm mattress to photograph animals at eye level.

The photographic day package includes the undivided attention of Trevor as the specialist photographic guide, assisted by a dedicated, experienced tracker while on safari.

The service also includes two hours of informal classroom-style tuition to enhance wildlife photography skills, as well as editing and processing in Adobe Lightroom at the Motse Camp’s fully equipped Photographic Studio. On-site printing is available up to A1 size on either paper or canvas and one edited wildlife print is included. The photographic package with the specialist guide is levied at an additional cost, and advance booking is subject to availability.
