What you can expect from the trip
The bushveld experienc is the first prize on these trips. Although this is a trip where the main focus is on photography and the workings of it, the ultimate goal is to be in the wild and document it through your own knowlege of photography, at learning about where you are, what you are looking at and what it's doing.
