Good day,

My name is Gary Parker, a veteran of 30 000 safari hours guiding guests to various destinations within Southern Africa. I am a passionate wildlife photographer that really tries to give my guests the best possible experience (please view some of my work at

I am writing from a Safari Company called Iconic Journeys – - based in Naples, Florida, with offices in South Africa (Cape Town and Johannesburg) and Kenya (Nairobi). We create tailor-made bespoke safari experiences and host on average 500 people on safari throughout Southern & Eastern Africa every year. Our destinations include: South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Mozambique and Malawi.
We offer hosted photographic safaris fully guided by a dedicated safari guide on an ad-hoc or scheduled basis to various destinations every year. I am the guide on most of our photographic safaris.

We have put together a few hosted photographic safaris for your perusal. The safaris have set dates and we have constructed them to get like-minded photographers with a common goal together on a trip and photograph some amazing African wildlife in their natural environment and the beautiful landscapes that surround them.

Each safari will be hosted and there will be no more than 6 photographers on the Safari vehicle. This would mean that each photographer would essentially have a “window” seat. Your guide will accompany the group throughout your journey to make travel seamless and furthermore teach you about the complexities of the subject and how to get the best out of your photography.

We would love to create a collaboration between ourselves and your photographic club and are willing to offer a 5% discount to your club members off our photographic safaris. Our safaris can either be in the format of the scheduled departures featured below or any bespoke journey that we can create to suit specific needs.

Please check some of our current scheduled departures at the enclosed links:
