Tusk Photo Photographic Safari – April 8th -13th 2009


On arriving at Elephant Plains Lodge, the friendly lodge staff seemed far more excited about the KFC that Wim had purchased for them in Lydenburg, than they did about our big black lens bags? After meeting our guests for the safari, Wim gave a briefing and laid the foundation for four days of excellent wildlife photography. Soon we found ourselves heading to the Land Rovers in time for the spectacular afternoon light. As everyone unpacked their kit, it was humorously noted that the only two photographers sporting black equipment from the dark side were the two photographic hosts! The beauty about the Tusk Photo Safaris is that the lodge dedicates two vehicles for our private use! With cameras at the ready, we departed on our first game drive and expectations were high
