However, this is not a photographic workshop, it is merely a relaxed casual safari with fellow photography enthusiasts. Each shoot is a unique experience. The quantity of guests on the safari is kept in balance so that the tours are not too large, that way capturing and identifying the best opportunity for the best shot is not difficult at all. The photographer will guide you in taking the best photographs.

Electric Bike Tours have been planned for the guest who would like to leisure in the saddle, enjoying comfortable biking of all terrain without feeling tired. The E-Bike allows you the affordability of the electric motor boost when you are going uphill, so you do not have to peddle furiously and use all your energy which you could rather use to enjoy the scenery. It is really the best of both worlds, as you still need to peddle and you get a fair amount of cardiovascular exercise, the only difference is at times you can rely on the electric motor to assist a bit.
The various routes have been laid out with careful planning to give the guest the best experience of the environment and of the animals , while the guest determines his own relaxed pace. However, a guide will accompany the guests at all times to supply necessary information.
