Expedition dates

These expeditions are can run for any duration that a mentor requests, but we suggest a minimum of 6 nights. Dates, we can arrange these programs on any date from 1st January to the 30th of May annually. 

Expedition syllabus

The syllabus is customisable, and we are happy to work with you to ensure it is satisfactory to your course. We feel that the syllabus best provide environmental journalism, wildlife photography and wildlife videography aspects. If students would like to partake in underwater photography, then they are required to have SCUBA certification and their could be additional travel expenses as the underwater photography can take place in Mozambique or Durban. In Africa the daily work would focus on tutored practical training and experience. The content collected would then be taken back to the home university for post production under the mentors supervision.
