  • A fully trained, experienced specialist driver with years of Safari driving experience who has worked with many internationally famed photographers.
  • Highly skilled safari guide who will add value by spotting the specifics, and pre-plan the Safaris based on your preferences. Both the guide and driver have patience in abundance, a mandatory requirement for professional photography.
  • Comfortable and specially modified jeeps that are designed having the photographer in mind.
  • We have jeeps with 3 lines of elevated seats fitted into an extended body. You have the required height for that perfect shot and the comfortable leg space for those "long waits".
  • The fully opened front [not covered by a glass] is a definite advantage with the steel bar on the hood that can hold your bean bag.
  • Side bars that are placed strategically which wouldn’t obstruct the view, with the advantage to fix your monopods.
  • We will be the first into the parks and the last to come out, giving you enough opportunities to take all the beautiful images you are dreaming of.


  • Any additional expenses, other than those mentioned in the inclusions list above.
Do you provide toiletries or should I bring my own?

We take pleasure in pampering our guests as we understand that with the rush of packing for a holiday they may forget some essential items. Therefore we offer a range of complimentary toiletries including shower gel, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.

Do you provide laundry services?

We currently provide laundry service for Elite & Premium Explorer by Mahoora and is a charged service available for urgent instances only.

What kind of footwear do you recommend for my stay?

We advise you to always have a pair of trainers for nature walks and night walks. You may also carry flip flops or a pair of sandals (that can sustain hard rocky ground) for other times.

Do you have facilities to store valuable items ?

Ours is a mobile tented safari camp and we do not have facilities for safe keeping. We encourage our guests to minimise carrying valuable items. In the event that you do carry any, we advise that you keep such items with you at all times.

What if I require something essential when I am at the camp ?

We will be able to assist based on the requirement. However, please note we are 20-30 minutes away from retail stores and combine all purchases at the same time to maximise the trip.

Do you provide driver accommodation in the campsite?

We do not provide driver accommodation at the campsites. However, we are able to assist you in arranging accommodation at a minimal cost.

Is WIFI available at the site?

YES. But however, this is limited to two-time slots which are from 10.00 AM to 01.00 PM and from 06.30 PM to 10.30 PM. We kindly request that you limit your usage during these times so that all guests can have access to the WIFI service.
