Go on a virtual photographic safari through Africa and learn the finer points of wildlife photography.


    What do you do when a 250kg Mountain Gorilla sniffs your ear? How do you get a snap of that Instagram worthy moment? 

    Discover the answer to this and all your photography related questions with our guide, professional photographer Alistair MacDougall, as he takes you on a photo safari through Botswana, Tanzania and Uganda. See the breathtaking beauty of Africa as Alistair shares his top photography tips and thoughts on what makes a notable image. 

    Test your inner photographer with a chance to use super telephoto lenses (such as 300mm, 500mm, 600mm) and cameras provided by Sun Studios in a hands-on-workshop around the museum before retiring inside for afternoon tea and discussions.

    One lucky guest will win a special print by Alistair MacDougall.
