If you will be visiting the Kruger National Park you may have just 1 chance to capture the fleeting moments that you witness.

 Your Dream...

You're going on a photo safari to the Kruger National Park that is famous for its big-five animals, birds and amazing landscapes - you have dreams of capturing your fantastic wildlife experiences on camera and returning home with impressive images to show friends and family.

Your Struggle...
You get home with magnificent memories, but boring photographs that have not captured the essence of the Kruger Park. You are so disappointed with the photographs that you show nobody.

Or, even worse, you cannot find the animals to photograph! Remember, the national parks are not zoos, you need to be able to first find the subjects and then know how best to photograph them.


The above scenario is played out by many people each year. You are unsure of what photo equipment to bring with, you don't know where the animal hot-spots are and you don't know what to expect from the animals if and when you do find them.

And then, by the time you are just getting 'acclimatized' to the park, it's time to go home!

For many people, an African safari is a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience and you don't have the time or money to repeat the trip in order to rectify mistakes you made on your first safari. 

But what if you could get a head start with your safari and know important information up-front?

Well you can...
the solution to your problem is The Photographers Guide to the Greater Kruger National Park, an affordable Kruger self-drive book (US$27.00) that you can download today (no postage costs) and either print out or keep on your laptop, iPad and/or Smartphone.

What other people are saying about The Photographers Guide to the Greater Kruger National Park

"It's 789 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads...special places...what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information.

It takes quite a lot to impress me, but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."

-- Janey Coetzee, creator of the CAROK group (Camps and Roads of Kruger), South Africa

"Planning a Kruger trip? A new guide by pro photographers holds the key to good pictures.

Learn from the folks who spent 517 days in the park and make your photos sing!"

-- Romi Boom, Editor of Wildcard Magazine, South Africa

"It's an excellent publication and a snip at the price. Very comprehensive in as much as it covers so many options for places to stay in and around KNP, gives good ideas on the best places to stop for photo opportunities and lots of hints and tips on how to get better photographs.

It's a good read too and it's like the biggest trip report I have ever read, so I think those who have been before will enjoy it as much as I have in anticipation of my first visit!"

-- Dave Williams, Llandudno, Wales

"...the majority of images are really impressive, each chosen for a practical reason, sometimes annotated to stress a point.

The authors clearly know what they are doing. For decades they have mapped their sightings, and in explaining how they achieved their images, they’re sharing invaluable tips on understanding wildlife behaviour, reading the signs, getting yourself in the best position for the shot.

There is a phenomenal wealth of information here; real substance."

-- Craig Rix, Editor, Travel Africa Magazine, UK

"Absolutely superb - you guys hit it out of the park - I've seen several other Kruger books and, in my opinion, yours is simply the best!”

-- Bob Shephardson, Debarry, Florida, USA

"This is an indispensable guide to getting the best out of Kruger, camera in hand or not!”

-- Caroline Webb, Associate Editor, Getaway Magazine, South Africa

About the Authors…

Mario & Jenny Fazekas have, since 1995, spent over 1000 days on self-drive and guided safaris in African National Parks in southern & east Africa with over half that time being spent in the Greater Kruger National Park.

Trevor Barnett has been visiting the KNP for over thirty 30 years but has taken wildlife photography serious only in the last ten to fifteen years. ‘Serious’ being an understatement, as Trevor leaves camp every morning as the gates open and he returns just as the gates close.

Some of Trevor’s images have won photo contests and have been showcased in many local and international publications.
