Zimanga Photography

A photographic awakening of the soul & senses. Join me on a photographic adventure at the leading dedicated photographic reserve in South Africa. Zimanga Photography will afford you the opportunity for new and unique images. I currently have the most logged hours in the field and hides of any current professional or freelance photographic guide taking guests to Zimanga. The hours of effort and dedication help in ensuring that my guests get the best of the best.

This is a private guided safari and will be set according to your own needs or that of your group. All the dates and times are subject to availability and your own travel schedule. Below is a basic outline of what I can suggest and can be amended as needed. It can also be a part of a larger itinerary should you wish.

Zimanga Photography experience with Andrew Aveley


Not only can you experience the cutting edge underground bird & mammal hides and photograph nature from water level on the Zimanga Photography experience. There are many opportunities with the reserves wild dogs, cheetah, general game and maybe even the elusive leopards.

The key to much of the success is the diversity the 6000 ha reserve offers. Over 400 bird species have been recorded to add to the over 80 mammal species. Advance your photographic development & management skills with personalized attention to detail in post processing, practical image evaluation during activities.
