We recently launched our new specialised photographic safaris at Jaci’s Lodges, hosted by Professional Wildlife and Nature photographer, Andrew Aveley in the Madikwe Game Reserve.
There are many reasons to visit Jaci’s Lodges for a photo safari, but here is a list of just 10:
1. 24/7 access to the Terrapin Hide – a unique water level shooting angle allows you to capture exceptional images of animals drinking from the waterhole at Jaci’s where the hide is located.
2. The specialised photographic safari vehicle, with its Gimpro Game Viewer Single Pano Head mount provides you with incredible stabilisation and a range of motion.
3. Professional level DSLR cameras are available with variable focal length lenses for guest use on the photographic vehicle – perfect for shooting everything from birds to mammals whilst in the field or at Terrapin Hide.
4. Receive specialised instruction from the renowned wildlife and nature photographer, Andrew Aveley. Learn all about the operation of the camera, photographic principles and get creative insights into each sighting.
5. Make use of the lodge’s editing lounge for post processing and image development, and receive tuition in either Lightroom or DPP from Andrew Aveley.
6. Guests get a complimentary SD card on which to story the images captured whilst on the hosted photographic drive, so that there is no need for transferring.
7. Andrew Aveley is offering 8 sessions at Jaci’s Lodges throughout 2016 – each ranging from 10 to 14 days – in addition to a children’s photographic safari and being a photographic guide on the much anticipated Madikwe Photo Festival.
8. Madikwe is home to an abundance and variety of wildlife, such as brown and spotted hyenas, black and white rhinos, endangered wild dogs, giraffes, hippos, cheetahs and more.
9. With prolific birdlife – 411 recorded species – this is a twitcher’s paradise.
10. Choose between Jaci’s Tree Lodge or Jaci’s Safari Lodge – each with amazing food, and efficient and friendly service, and enjoy being in the gorgeous south African bushveld, eating under the stars.
