Thanda Safari, a 5-star private game reserve located in KwaZulu-Natal, offers first-class photography options for guests. Whether a photography beginner or an experienced enthusiast, Thanda Safari offers guests staying two nights or more the very memorable opportunity to develop or advance their wildlife photography skills.

In addition to a complimentary 90-minute photo workshop for all, guests also have access to a specially-designed photographic safari vehicle. The Green Mamba 1 is a new Land Rover Defender remodeled into a luxurious game-viewing vehicle available for hire.
Exclusive to Thanda Safari guests, the vehicle can be requested for private photography game drives lead by Christian Sperka, the Resident Wildlife Photographer and Field Guide who designed the vehicle himself. The Green Mamba 1 includes seating for two photographers with extra legroom allowing them greater movement and access to shoot from different angles, a canvas floor matting for the photographer to kneel or sit on to shoot at eye level over the side of the vehicle, photography arms on the back seats to rest beanbags or gimbals on as well as extra storage space for equipment. There is also seating for an additional three accompanying guests.
Adding to the above, an on-board Nespresso coffee machine has been incorporated into the vehicle design along with Christian’s signature Martini bush bar for evening drinks. A Marine Sound System comprising bird call recordings, a 12.9″ Apple iPad Pro with the latest nature apps including Roberts Birds of Southern Africa, and three sockets for spotlights – front-middle-back – have all been installed.
A private, half-day Photography Session in the Wild starts from R2500 per vehicle.
