The camp waterholes are about 50 meters away from the viewing area so you don't need a super telephoto lens. We do use our mm lens for the smaller animals such as African Wild Cat but for elephants, giraffe and rhinos we use a mm lens. Leopards, cheetahs and white rhinos can be a challenge to find in Etosha. Lions and elephants can usually be found at or near most of the waterholes in winter and black rhinos tend to be a common sighting.

You don't get the dense vegetation that could obscure the animals and spoil your photographs like in the Kruger and Pilanesberg. The best months for wildlife photography, particularly for predators and raptors, are the summer and autumn months.

Our Safaris

Summers can, however, get extremely hot so for comfort we prefer to visit the park in March and April. All game drives are done along just four roads - the two main river roads of the Auob and Nossob and the two connecting dune roads. There are a series of boreholes situated along the four roads, which attract the prey and predators. There are also waterholes in front of the main camps Nossob and Mata Mata and in front of all the wilderness camps. We love the Wilderness Camps as they are quieter than the main camps and we tend to therefore see the shy creatures such as brown hyena, porcupine and caracal drinking here.

For photography, Urikaruus is the best wilderness camp because the waterhole is just 50 meters from the cabins. At the other wilderness camps the waterholes are between 75 and meters from the cabins. Sometimes the animals are close to the waterholes and sometimes they aren't so we would suggest that you have at least a mm f4 lens plus tele-converter.

Leopards are not easy to find in the Kgalagadi! Cheetahs and lions tend to be easy to spot, as they travel up and down the Auob and Nossob riverbeds. Kruger National Park Because the Kruger National Park has dense vegetation, you may not find animals as quickly as you will in the more open parks of Etosha and Kgalagadi.

For this reason we suggest you stay for a longer period. We have been to Etosha for 6 days and every day we filled up our memory cards but in the Kruger it may take us a few days to fill up one card. Not because there are less animals in the Kruger but because they are more difficult to find and to photograph. The Kruger is over kilometers long from north to south and the diverse geology and landscapes of the park make up fifteen different ecozones!

Wildlife Photography & Conservation, South Africa

The main camps and bushveld camps are situated in these different ecozones so some camps will be more suited to certain animals than others. If you are looking for the Big-5 animals or Super-seven, your best chance of finding and photographing them all will be in the south of the park. If you are looking for the rare roan or eland then the north will be the best. Please sign in to continue shopping! Your registrations has not been verified. Please contact Graffiti to help you.
