Where the red dunes and scrub fade into infinity and herds of gemsbok, springbok, eland and blue wildebeest follow the seasons, where imposing camel thorn trees provide shade for huge black-mane lions and vantage points for leopard and many raptors... this is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park . Red sand dunes, sparse vegetation and the dry riverbeds of the Nossob and Auob show antelope and predator species off to spectacular advantage and provide excellent photographic opportunities. Kgalagadi is also a haven for bird photographers, especially those interested in birds of prey.
Urikaruus Wilderness Camp is situated 72 km (two hours) drive away from Twee Rivieren on the road to Mata Mata, overlooking the Auob River. To provide seclusion and privacy our group will be the only guests at this exclusive camp. The remoteness of the camp ensures that virtually no other vehicles are present during the golden hours - early morning and late afternoon: exactly the conditions that wildlife photographers need to get those prize-winning images. You will be able to explore two distinct habitats: the Auob fossil riverbed, and the dunes, each with its own unique atmosphere and scenery.
The dry riverbed offer great opportunities to photograph a multitude of birds and animals! Raptors abound in the park and they are most often seen in the early morning when they sun themselves in the numerous dead trees along the road that skirts the banks of the dry riverbeds. It's not uncommon to encounter and photograph several species of raptors during one morning's drive. The numerous artificial waterholes along the river are a haven for both mammals and birds! Large flocks of doves and sandgrouse usually congregate there from midmorning onward to quench their everlasting thirst. This is the ideal opportunity for Lanner Falcons to practise their hunting technique and it is not uncommon to see quite a number of these birds having a go at snatching a dove or sandgrouse in amongst a flying frenzy as birds come and go to the water on a continual basis. Spending time at these waterholes is not only entertaining but also provides ample opportunities to get some really great images of these birds in action. If, however, it's mammals you are after, the opportunities are also great, whether it is a herd of springbok etched against a sand dune in the late afternoon light or a cheetah with her cubs right next to your vehicle in the dry riverbed you are sure to be treated with some spectacular opportunities to capture an award winning image!
This event is suitable for both experienced as well as beginner photographers as there will be ample time for personal tuition on how to refine both your practical photographic technique and digital image processing.
