Photographic safaris at every level

Inspiring photography game drives

Safari photography from an open game drive vehicle is ideal. Driving with a guide, tracker, and photographer in a private game reserve provides you with the best opportunities to capture wildlife. In the early morning and late afternoon, the light is beautifully soft, and this quality is reflected in the photos. During dusk, the use of flashes may be necessary, and professional photographers are there to assist as needed. You also have ample opportunities for special evening photography, in which these photographers specialize: using larger spotlights, two vehicles can alternate illuminating the animal from behind or from the side. This interplay of light and shadow allows you to capture unique photos!

Photography from the water

Drinking elephants, buffaloes, antelopes, and sometimes lions or wild dogs, but above all, a plethora of colorful birds: various kingfishers, rollers, bee-eaters, African fish eagles, waders, and water birds. From a small boat on the river, you can approach these animals closely, providing unique photography opportunities. Afloat, you may encounter opportunities to capture images of pelicans in flight, surfing sea lions, or leaping dolphins. Embrace the challenge and capture the most beautiful moments.

Photo safari Namibia- Sossusvlei

Landscape photography from an open helicopter

Photographing from a helicopter, as offered during your photo tour in Namibia, is truly unique. It provides not only landscapes with a short lens but also long-distance shots of animals that take on an entirely different allure. The expansive view is breathtaking, offering not only unique photos but also an exhilarating adventure.

To capture stunning shots from the helicopter, it’s essential that the doors are removed. While this is not standard, it is fully facilitated during this photo tour in Namibia, ensuring you have the optimal conditions for your aerial photography experience.

Photography from the best hides

Hide photography is an entirely different kind of photography, with specialized hides for mammals, water birds, small birds, bee-eaters, and vultures. These hides provide genuinely unique opportunities for photography, both during the day and at night. Van Bommel Safaris offers numerous options to incorporate these special locations into your customized safari experience. Whether you prefer a guided photo tour or want to spend some time on your own in various hides, everything is possible.
