South Africa’s Famous Garden Route + Kruger National Parkfrom
8th Oct to 18th Oct 2020 (11D9N)
Curated and conjured by Photo Master Julian W., this South Africa aficionado has visited the country more than 50 times, and knows the country like the back of his hand. A professional wildlife photographer and a certified South African Specialist awarded by the South Africa Tourism Organization, Julian designed this itinerary that will show you the very best of everything South African – From food & scenery, to wildlife & culture!
The world-renowned Garden Route is one of the most scenic routes in the World and entails some of the most spectacular scenery and activities that one can find while on holiday. There are simply too many interesting things to cover and photograph, but this program ensures that participants get the utmost photo opportunities.
Kruger National Park is one of the best places on the planet to observe and photograph wildlife, and provides game viewing that is hard to match elsewhere. With its rich diversity and abundance of wildlife, this National Park is high on the list of every wildlife lover.
Availability is extremely limited and interested participants are advised to confirm as early as possible.
Only 6 spots are available. Minimum 4 to travel. Sign up soon to avoid disappointment as this is one of our signature packages for 2020.
The Photography Master on trip:
Julian W. first started weaving images with light in 1992. He honed his photography skills by immersing himself in fashion, portrait and commercial photography, but soon found these pursuits a little too monotonous for his liking.
To challenge himself, he listened to his inner callings and venture into nature photography soon after. His works soon caught the attention of Animal Planet, Sony, HSBC, Singtel, Vitagen, and many various wildlife institutions
Today, this workaholic runs 4 companies, which includes a brand agency and a full-fledged travel agency that is registered with the Singapore Tourism Board.
Julian is also the brainchild for Singapore Photography Meets, a photography community that has more than 6000 active members.
