WIN a place on a 7 day photography safari!
In March 2017 I am leading a wildlife photography safari for Penda Photo Tours in the Djuma private reserve of Sabi Sands and part of the Greater Kruger area of South Africa. Penda Photo Tours have teamed up with Cameraland, Cape Town’s oldest camera retailer to give away one place on this fantastic safari!
