Photo safari to the KMP and Kalahari

We all know that the KMP meerkats are extremely photogenic – yet the KMP can usually not cater to the needs of wildlife photographers… with the exception of the Kalahari Meerkats Photographic Safari operated by Duma Safaris!

Join this exclusive safari aimed at people with a passion both for photography and the meerkats and the Kalahari. Apart from an 4-day stay at the KMP the June 2019 tour will also take you to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park with its stunning wildlife and scenery.

Interested? Find more information here or on Duma Safaris website.
