Wildlife Photography Volunteer FAQs

Why Volunteer in Wildlife Photography with African Impact

Photography has the incredible ability to enhance a place or emphasize a cause. Our wildlife photography volunteers are at the forefront of some of Africa’s most exquisite wildlife, capturing their amazing movements and beauty through a camera lens, while significantly contributing toward community development and conservation efforts. Our program will help you to apply your wildlife photography skills and gain invaluable experience working alongside professionals with extensive knowledge and expertise, all while maximizing your impact behind the lens.

All wildlife photography taken during your volunteer work will be available for charities and NGOs to promote and raise awareness for conservation purposes. Wildlife photography volunteers contribute significantly toward supporting local communities, as photographs that document the wild provide income for local community members and are valuable resources for conservation initiatives.

Enthusiastic photographers of all levels are encouraged to apply for our wildlife photography volunteer programs. You will be required to bring along your own camera (a SLR is recommended), a laptop for post-production editing, as well as a positive mindset and be ready for some incredible wildlife action shots!

Situated away from the city lights, the Greater Kruger Area is a sprawling expanse of about 20 private game reserves to the west of the Kruger National Park in South Africa. As a wildlife photography volunteer, you will be in the best position to photograph giant African elephants, elusive predators, beautiful birds, strange insects, and the great starry skies. The Greater Kruger Area is a dreamscape for wildlife photographers wanting to capture the immense wonder and beauty of the natural world. On top of capturing wildlife through photography, you’ll participate in general conservation work in the area, that includes hands-on field work and raising awareness on conservation issues in surrounding communities.
