Penny Robartes and ORYX Photo Tours are proud to present a carefully crafted journey to one of Africa’s ultimate wildlife photographic destinations, South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve. This area offers “prime time” game viewing at its best and it has for decades enchanted wildlife enthusiasts the world over with the remarkable sightings it routinely produces.

The “Big 5”, which comprise of Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo & Rhino, thrive here and our photography tour will be focused on these animals as their lives play out on the bushveld stage. Dubbed as a “big cat paradise”, Lion, Cheetah and Leopard are routinely seen, as well as the Endangered African Wild Dog and Spotted Hyena, which rounds up the quintet of Africa’s large carnivores.

Come and enjoy a South Africa photo safari experience par excellence that will leave you with a plethora of images and memories to last a lifetime.

Why This Photo Tour Is For You


    Come and enjoy this South Africa photo safari in the heart of the Sabi Sands at a private & luxurious game lodge. As this reserve is not open to the general public, exclusive and intimate game viewing opportunities abound.


    Winter is considered the best time for wildlife viewing as vegetation is thin and animals gather around water sources. The winter season also offers more favourable lighting during the golden hour.


    The Sabi Sands is home to one of the densest concentrations of wildlife in Southern Africa, with numerous predators & a healthy herbivore population. It represents some of the finest opportunities in Africa to photograph the Big 5, specifically the elusive Leopard.


    Limited to only 4 participants with an open & private safari vehicle for the duration of the photo safari.


    Local knowledge of the region and its wildlife is key to crafting the ultimate photography tour experience. Combined with the photographic expertise of Penny Robartes, and you are in for an adventure that will further fuel your excitement for photography and the destination.
