A blend of theory and practice, daily game drives will allow guests to tell their own story through the lens, and still very much a riding holiday, twice daily horseback adventures covering varied trails in the picturesque Waterberg region are included. In the evening budding photographers will have ample time to review their shots over a sundowner, Lotty helping guests to progress their new-found shutterbug skills.

An unforgettable experience, the stay will also include a night sky safari, wine tasting evening and optional day trip to the Lapalala Wilderness Reserve, home to numerous ancient bushman paintings and archeological sites.
