Safaris

I offer tailor made exclusive photographic safaris and workshops throughout Southern Africa. From time to time I will put together a set itinerary but for the most part I feel that no two people have the same requirements for their ultimate African photographic experience and that everyone deserves individual attention and a safari designed around their unique requirements.

If you are interested in spending time with me in some of the most pristine wilderness areas of Africa or just have a few questions about wildlife photography and photographic safaris then please don't hesitate to send me an email at mikedexterimages@gmail.com

African Predator Safari

For this 9 day photographic safari we have handpicked the very best that Southern Africa has to offer. Exceptional game viewing, unparalleled service and expert photographic tuition make this the flagship Southern African photo safari.

We have chosen two destinations, namely Malamala and Mashatu, based on the number and quality of the photographic opportunities that each can be relied upon to present. Here you stand a greater chance of capturing powerful, emotive images of some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife than anywhere else. Included in the trip is the opportunity to photograph from the one of a kind photo hides on Mashatu Game Reserve. The image that won the 2013 BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year was taken from one of these hides. Mike Dexter, your host and photographic guide, was instrumental in the installation and development of the Mashatu hides and has spent more time there than any other photographer (over 1000 hours).

At each destination we have the ability to drive off road which means that we will be able to track and follow illusive species like leopard as they move freely through these vast reserves.

2017 Dates:
May 21 – 30
August 4 – 13
October 5 – 14

Kwandwe Photo Safaris & Workshops

Young male cheetah

Join me on a private photo safari in Kwandwe Private Game Reserve for a unique big 5 experience in the heart of the malaria-free Eastern Cape, South Africa. Kwandwe is one of the largest private game reserves in Southern Africa and, with only 2 intimate lodges and 2 villas, has a very low guest to land ratio. During the day we can sit down together and discuss any and all aspects of photography that you would like to improve on; from complete basics to advanced techniques and image processing.

I will accompany you on game drives and provide suggestions and instruction on how to make the most of every opportunity. You will have sole use of a vehicle so we can stay longer at sightings and focus entirely on improving your photography and on capturing the best images possible.
