Zimanga Photography experience with Andrew Aveley


Not only can you experience the cutting edge underground bird & mammal hides and photograph nature from water level on the Zimanga Photography experience. There are many opportunities with the reserves wild dogs , cheetah , general game and maybe even the elusive leopards. The key to much of the success is the diversity the 6000 ha reserve offers. Over 400 bird species have been recorded to add to the over 80 mammal species. Advance you photographic development & management skills with personalised attention to detail in post processing , practical image evaluation during activities.

As there is no permanent lodging on the reserve , we make use of the Nkonkoni Fishing Camp or  Ghost Mountain Inn (GMI) a few kilometres from the main gate. Transfer after each activity will be done by your guide and ranger.
