Why a South Africa Photography Holiday?
The Kwantu South Africa Wildlife & Conservation Photography Course is the most comprehensive wildlife photography qualification in South African Wildlife, where students get the opportunity to learn new skills with an award-winning professional photographer, in a ground-breaking conservation project.
This conservation photography holiday see’s you join a fantastic conservation project, near Port Elizabeth, in their mission to save Africa’s Big 5 – Elephants, Lions, Rhino, Cape Buffalo and the elusive Leopard. Improve your skills as a photographer and learn about how photography is important in conservation, all whilst working with the wildlife that calls this location home.
Our extensive curriculum covers many aspects and techniques, from basic to advanced, including wildlife portrait, animal behaviour, fine art, documentary and camera trap photography.
During the course you will gain practical experience in wildlife photography, while contributing to the conservation of South Africa’s wildlife. Using your new skills, you will support NGO’s and help raise awareness of environmental and conservation issues throughout Africa.
