Informative and great knowledge of the bush and wild animals
I had such a awesome experience at Walkers and Lance has so much knowledge of the bush and finding good sightings of wild life and photography skills. Kirstin is such an excellent host so kind and caring and absolutely wonderful chef taking care of your every needs. I also subscribe to the Panthera patroen account that does the most amazing charity work for rehabilitation for poached and injured animals. I was very fortunate to meet Lilly the pangoline that was poached and needed medical assistance and through my subscription this was possible.

The best safari experience I ever had with great company
We had a great trip with Lance and Kirstin! Mashatu was beautiful with fields of yellow flowers everywhere and animals everywhere. The price was totally worth it, the food was tasty, the service was great and the guides nice. If you want to make a nice trip to this area, I can definitely recommend Panthera Safaris!

Fantastic value for money
We had a great trip where everything went smoothly and was well organized. The photography opportunities were excellent and Lance was always on hand to help you get the best shot and to help with the different settings of your camera to optimize your photos. The accommodation was excellent and comfortable and the meals were interesting and varied. We were well looked after by Lance and Kirsten and would highly recommend Panthera Photo Safaris for an unforgettable African safari

We have traveled all over the world (5 continents) with Lance on safaris!
To give you my history, I have traveled all over the world with Lance on safaris and the trips somehow get better every time. We have been to 5 continents already and are looking at the last two! This trip was a return to Africa and to tell you we had the most amazing time. The lodge, animals, new and old friends, food, pics, experience…. It was amazing.
For price, it was very comparable! I would never choose the cheap ones because I prefer a comfy, clean, and well protected safari camp in the bush that I can relax, unwind, and make new memories! However Kirstin at Panthera Photo somehow always manages to make it all work out and on my budget too! They have provided transport and trip scheduling also, making my travel so much more enjoyable. For the pandemic they arranged Covid tests for each leg of our journey, actually brining the nurse to the lodge.
Even when small travel mishaps happen…. Let my card reader at home, they work it all out. It’s a game changer. Go for the animals and come back time and again for the experience and new friends!
Last thing…. Spring for the private jeep if it’s an option…. It’s a game changer! Safari takes on a whole new spin.

Professional and always up beat.
Panthera Photo Safaris was a joy to deal with. Their communication was excellent in the build up to the tour which took place in the Timbabvati in South Africa. Lance certainly helped take my photography to the next level and did so with ease and I appreciated his sense of humour and patience. Kirstin was an outstanding host and I found their prices to be very competitive. The experience this team provided superseded the cost of the trip.

A fantastic course that is worth every penny
I attended the photographic safari course at Kambaku River Lodge in Malelane during September 2021. Lance is a great teacher who is very clear in his direction and patient with learners. I learnt so much and had a blast doing so. There is a very visible improvement in my photos after the course. I highly recommend it for photographers of all levels.

LAnce is brilliant.
I have been on many safaris, and have not been inclined to take up photography. Lance encouraged me to do so. I borrowed a camera from my wife, and had a fabulous time taking pictures in the hide at Kambaku River Lodge. I found Lance very knowledgeable and helpful with explaining all the settings needed to take pictures. I definitely have a new hobby, thanks to Lance.

I would highly recommend travelling with Lance and Kirsten. What an exceptional team! Always ready to go the extra mile. Lance and Kirsten are kind, patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Thank you so much for what you taught me Lance. What an awesome safari. Panthera Photo Safaris also play a big role towards the ani-poaching of Rhino.
