Photographing the Wildlife at the Waterhole at Night


Photographing wildlife is an incredible experience that attracts many photographers & nature enthusiasts alike. But photographing the wildlife at the waterhole at night is an altogether different experience!

The Lodge provides a perfect setting to photograph animals in their natural habitat. The waterhole hide is equipped with a specially designed lighting system & the hide itself offers a comfortable & safe place to observe wildlife.

What makes this experience special is the chance to witness nocturnal animals like hyenas & in their environment. The Lodge's expert guides will remain in the hide overnight to ensure you are awake for the opportunities to photograph animals coming to drink at night.

Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance – it is a requirement when booking on any wildlife photography holiday scheduled by NaturesLens that you have adequate travel insurance, we suggest a policy from TrailFinders or Campbell Irvine.

Camera Insurance

Insuring your camera equipment before embarking on any wildlife photographic holiday is crucial. Our trips often involve venturing into remote, & sometimes unpredictable environments where accidents & unexpected incidents occur. Insuring your camera gear provides financial protection against theft, loss, or damage, ensuring your investment is safeguarded.

Wildlife photography involves capturing unique & irreplaceable moments, & without proper insurance, any unforeseen mishap could result in significant monetary losses. By insuring your equipment, you can enjoy peace of mind, knowing that you’re covered in case of any unfortunate events, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring world of wildlife & capture stunning photographs without worry.

We recommend PhotoGuard for amateur photographers or Glover Howe, who we use.
