Wilderness Safaris and Olympus have joined forces to use their high-end services and combined passion for wildlife photography to ensure the ongoing conservation of Africa’s remote wilderness areas whilst contributing to the empowerment of local people through conservation education.
We are proud to partner with a like-minded company like Olympus. Together we not only share a love of wildlife photography but also a similar set of values and ideals about making a bigger, positive impact on the world, and our place in it.
The two main elements of the partnership are focused on enhancing photographic skills for interested guests and guides in all regions where Wilderness Safaris operates, and to make a positive impact to social development by supporting a scholarship programme for secondary and tertiary education run by our non-profit partner, Children in the Wilderness.
If you’ve been to Africa, chances are your soul has been touched and a wealth of images recorded in memory and on camera. As humanity’s birthplace, Africa speaks to us all: its wildlife, landscapes, conservation leadership, and people of richly diverse cultures.
Entries open today for our fifth annual international photographic competition, ‘Africa in Focus’, held in partnership with Olympus and offering phenomenal safari prizes to the value of USD80 000.
• Wilderness Safaris’ non-profit Children in the Wilderness is the beneficiary of this year’s competition. We are proud to support their programme teaching sustainable conservation through leadership development and education of African children.
• For the first time, we’ve added a junior photographer category for under-18s. Also for the first time, we have an all-women judging panel of world-class photographers and conservationists.
