Luxury safari specialist African Portfolio has created a unique safari experience taking place in July in South Africa’s Timbavati Private Game Reserve and featuring the expertise of renowned wildlife photographer Christian Sperka.
Sperka, a German-born photographer and avid animal conservationist who now resides in Nashville, where he has a gallery, has created an extensive library of wildlife portraits and conducts photo workshops on African safaris. He is resident photographer at the Nashville Zoo, where he teaches classes for amateurs and professionals.
This year he is bringing his ‘masters series’ photo workshop to South Africa July 1-5 in a special program created exclusively for African Portfolio guests. The workshops will focus on how to photograph animals in the wild, whether in flight or on the run. He recommends using a digital SLR camera with at least a 300 mm lens for best results.
African Portfolio guests will join Sperka at Waterbuck private lodge at Kings Camp in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve and he will accompany the group in the open-air vehicles during twice daily safaris in the bush. The Timbavati reserve covers about 60,000 hectares of pristine African bush and is part of the world-famous Kruger National Park. Waterbuck at Kings Camp offers the ultimate in a safari experience, featuring an air-conditioned four-bedroom private villa with a personal butler and chef. The private and exclusive lodge will only serve to enhance the educational experience for all participants and maximize time with Sperka. The camp is situated on a dry river bank and affords great views of game and plenty of photographic opportunities.
The five-day, four-night program with Sperka is $3,775, which includes deluxe accommodations at the luxurious Waterbuck lodge at Kings Camp, all meals, most drinks, and daily safari trekking on foot and in open-air vehicles with Sperka as well as a professional safari guide.
The five-day photography program is part of a 10-night trip. The remaining five nights can be arranged either before or after the Sperka Safari. African Portfolio will work with guests individually to design those nights to feature whatever they wish. This could include more game-viewing, or traveling outside the game reserves to visit Cape Town or Johannesburg for shopping, sightseeing, golf, and visiting South Africa’s wine country.
