Inspired by the Timbavati, Makanyi Lodge’s new four-day photographic and art safaris are designed for visitors who want to use their creative talents to capture their close encounters in the African bush.

Coaching will take place during game drives as well as within workshops in a purpose built photographic suite back at the lodge, with tutoring that covers shutter speeds, ISO and aperture, adapting to different lighting conditions as well as composition and shooting techniques such as panning, backlighting, side lighting and action shots.

At the end of the safari, guests will leave with around 20-30 images that they’ve taken and processed themselves, and one or two prized printed and rolled canvases ready for framing back home.

While the one-to-one photographic safari caters for all competencies, the art safari requires a certain level of knowledge and interest. Working in pastel and pencil, guests will learn to master rough sketching, animal portraiture and how to capture intense detail.
