In August 2021 Grant and Helena Atkinson will lead a private group of photographers to Botswana’s Tuli Game Reserve, located in the east of Botswana.  We will base ourselves out of Mashatu Main camp.  This safari and workshop combines a great wildlife area, with extensive photographic and digital workflow instruction, together with photographic hide sessions and comfortable accommodation.   Game viewing around Mashatu is excellent with a high density of elephants being just one of the highlights.  The terrain, which is a mixture of dry riverbeds, rocky outcrops and plains, also provide superb habitat for leopards.  Other predators present here include lion, cheetah and spotted hyaena. Our stay at Mashatu also incorporates time in their ground-level, special photographic hides.  All photos were taken on recent trips to the area.
