John & Marie Holding AUSTRALIA

Our 14 days with Wild4 Safaris was the best learning experience we have ever embarked on. We were totally immersed in the world of wildlife photography, in the best place in the world, with one of the best pro photographers around. Stu genuinely enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion for wildlife and photography. It was an unbelievably rewarding learning experience, raising our skill levels significantly.

Stu and his team were able to teach us about our equipment and the application of new skills. This sharing of skills, along with the excellent booklet (which became Marie's bible) is world-class. It ensured we got to places that others didn't and that we were always in the best position to shoot. Stu didn't disappoint and was able to put together some memorable opportunities to get many excellent shots.

The whole package was first class, from the pickup, through accommodation, food and day trips, to the people (now friends) who we met on the trip. This is one of those bucket list adventures that we will be doing again with WILD4.

I have always dreamed of taking a photo safari to Africa but had a disappointing first attempt last year.  The urge was still there, so after some more research, I came upon Wild4 African Photo Safaris.  I was excited that this time I would really get the experience I was hoping for, and it did not fail.

The pre-tour information left me well informed.  I could already tell that this would be an adventure of a lifetime.  On safari, Stu’s knowledge continued to surprise me.  Not only does he know about photography, but his familiarity with the animals and their environment is unbelievable.  This meant he never let us miss an opportunity.  Stu was patient and informative.  His tips will help with all of my future photography endeavours. 

This Wild4 Safari went above and beyond all of my expectations.  It really was a dream come true.

Thank you Stu for such a memorable photo safari.

WILD4 provided a totally professional service, from the pre-safari preparation to the sighting and photographing of so many animals and birds.  At all stages, your team provided first-class support and advice.  The package you provide is superb and that is why I am booking another safari with you.

Bastian & Matthias Freund USA

We enjoyed the Migration photo safari very much and were blessed to see so many crossings and animals in such a short period of time.

The safari was well organized, all accommodations were first class and the food was certainly a nice surprise considering we were in the wilderness!  Our guides took good care of us and were one reason that we saw such varied and exciting wildlife.  You picked a great support team for this safari!

Bastian and I learned a lot of new photo techniques, which we will use in the future to improve our photographic results.  Bastian for sure got hooked on time-lapse.  Thanks to you and all your preparation, your guidance and support, this was a once in a lifetime experience.  Our photographs will always remind us of you and the great time we spent together.  

Thank you!

The Wild4 team made my trip to South Africa a truly memorable experience.  Stu's tuition on techniques, composition and familiarity with your gear was the foundation for the rest of the trip. 

We had some wonderful sightings - highlighted by spending time with a leopard cub in a tree no more than 30 metres away and watching a pride of 14 lions stalking a herd of zebra for more than an hour - just wonderful experiences!   The quality of my shots was infinitely better than on a regular safari, as the whole focus is expertly designed to maximise photographic opportunities.

Stu's knowledge, enthusiasm and patience were boundless, and Ann's spotting and catering skills were priceless!  I hope to visit Africa again soon, and without a doubt Wild4 will be my first option.

Wild4 Photo Safari gave me much more than an average safari tour.  The experiences, friends, and information gathered from my trip will stay with me forever.  My anticipations were greatly exceeded, beyond anything I could ever have dreamed of.  I Love Wild4!!

Malcolm UK

This was simply an outstanding photographic safari all round – by far the best that I have been on!  As a keen enthusiast photographer, looking to step up a level and enter 2 competitions later in the year, I could not have hoped for more.  Excellent!

The Wild4 team is very well organized and their prompt and helpful responses to queries pre-trip ensured they were easy and a pleasure to deal with. 

Stu Porter can pitch his photographic tuition at any level and his attention to detail and enthusiasm was spot on throughout this trip.  Already comfortable with my own photo technique, I was surprised by just how much I learned.  I have easily adopted his full-on manual approach, every bit of which he was able to justify - a revelation!  I am quite picky, but I cannot praise these guys enough and I will be back. 

Very many thanks to the whole team.

Murray Richards AUSTRALIA

This was my 3rd memorable trip with Wild 4.  The wildlife in Tanzania put on a show for us from dawn till dusk.  Cheetah's, lion prides, leopards, the birth of a gazelle and zebra.  Migrating herds of wildebeest and zebra's - this trip had it all!

Superb locations, great accommodation, amazing food and unique scenery.  I'll definitely be going back with Wild4!

What sets Wild4 apart is their attention to detail to support photographers and videographers.  Small groups, well-selected locations, high-quality camps/lodges and well-trained guides makes for a very well organised and intimate photographic safari experience. 

They provide not just a beanbag, but a beanbag 'system' for each photographer!  They provide panning plates, and photographic platforms designed by an experienced wildlife photographer.  The Wild4 team understand the needs of photographers on safari.

I can't recommend them highly enough for your African wildlife photographic experience.

Larry Jackson USA

First introduced to Wild4 by a friend, we have now been on 5 trips.  Stu is the ultimate professional guide offering a terrific experience wherever he takes us. 

He shares his extensive knowledge of photography, making it possible to get better photos and make the most of each photographic opportunity.  It takes special qualities to guide photographers around Africa, keep them comfortable, provide the best photo locations at the best time of the day, manage the schedules, vehicles, drivers, flights and food and still remain calmly in control. 

He is supported well by Justyna in the office and we anticipate travelling more with Wild4 in the future. 

You should book a trip with him as soon as you can!

David Austwick UK

On arrival, we were treated as part of the family by the Wild4 Team.  We had everything we needed for the task – a specially equipped “Hide on Wheels”, a dedicated and professional approach to photography and plenty of time.

The initial sighting would be accompanied by the excited, rapid firing of shutters, but then we would settle and wait as long as necessary in the hope of getting something different.  Stu’s awareness of animal behaviour and camera settings was very useful in planning our shots.

His knowledge of African wildlife and skill as a wildlife photographer is second to none, and I have learned a lot from his expertise.  I am delighted with my photos!!

This was the trip of a lifetime, good accommodation, delicious food and great company.  It was altogether a wonderful, challenging and thrilling experience and, if you are looking for a photo safari in Africa, contact Stu Porter at Wild4.
