Bob Davis Workshop Safari

October 20-29 2017

We are Bob & Dawn Davis, an international wedding photography and design, husband and wife team based in the Chicagoland area. Wow, that’s a mouthful. We have had the privilege of photographing celebrity weddings and speaking at photography conferences and workshops around the world, but that’s not what defines us. We are passionate about our faith, our marriage, our family and making the best of our lives. We are blessed to have been given these talents and we want to share them with the world. We love sharing our knowledge with photographers. We feel that if we can make a successful business, anybody can. It takes passion, desire, dedication and a will to never give up. Of course, learning all that you can to master your craft and develop your business skills is a must! If you would like to meet with us, send us an email. We’re excited to hear from you!

Special Guest Photographer Libero Antonio Di Zinno

We are blessed to have a special guest on this amazing safari. Tony will be available to help with with both workshop and photography instruction.

From Air Jordan to the Dalai Lama, artist, adventurer and educator, Libero Antonio Di Zinno’s careers has so far covered 6 continents and more than 88 countries world wide. Whether he is producing stories on Tibetan monks in exile in Kathmandu or chasing Grand Prix drivers at speed in this principality of Monaco this self-proclaimed ‘Photo Sherpa’ made his bones in his early career as an apprentice as an assistant for a Rolling Stone magazine photographer before going out on his own producing award winning images of iconic athletes for adidas, Nike and The North Face.

Currently an adjunct faculty member of the Art Center College of Design, Tony teaches visual narrative in stills+motion where students of every major are involved on a team basis. One example, a prototype class based upon working with non-profit foundations inspired by the U.N.’s millennium development goals (MDG’s). The result of this initial class led to an invite to attend the United Nations annual NGO conference to share the best of the students work.  This in turn led to his invitation to be an advisor on the board of Mountain to Mountain, a non-profit working on projects in Central Asia empowering women and girls in conflict zones.

More recently, TDZ has been working for the past few seasons in the Black Hills with the Lakota Sioux for the Center for Sacred Studies in a project of ‘giving voice’ which has produced a book as a proof of concept to be presented to President Obama on behalf of all of the tribes to demonstrate their solidarity by way of creating the Unity concert in the Black Hills of South Dakota each autumn.
Currently, he lives in Venice, CA with his wife Sarah and their little boy Julian.

Shopping Experience at Cambanos & Son

Idube Photo Safaris has searched for the ultimate South African Shopping Experience . Clothing, Jewelry, Arts and Crafts, Beadwork, Drums, and just about everything under the sun that is African. This business is one of the biggest in South Africa, supplying the world with African curios. But the pledge remains the same “Make sure the customer is happy” and hope they eventually become friends. The business is still run by the family today; Gerry Cambanos is only a phone call away if you require a piece of Africa in your home. We will spend approximately two hours at this amazing location. This stop will be in route to our Lesedi Cultural Village Experience and sleepover.

Mashatu Main Lodge  Botswana

Main-Camp-Pool1 Zebra-at-Sunset2  Main-Camp-Room1

Mashatu is situated on the eastern fringes of the Kalahari Desert and water is its most precious resource. The sighting of the Mashatu camps in close proximity to water, and in thickets of vegetation, automatically locates the visitor into an enclave populated by birds and animals.

Mashatu Main Camp is an oasis among the undulating and seemingly endless plains of the wild. Burning torches at the camp’s entrance lure safari-goers home where they experience the embodiment of sublime hospitality.

For the client who is accustomed to luxury, this camp will meet every expectation. 14 luxury suites lie along the camp’s perimeter and are designed to allow absolute privacy and a communion with the bush and its inhabitants. Watch elephants splashing at the waterhole, listen to the lyrical melody of the woodlands kingfisher on a branch overhead, smell the grassy scent of the bushveld, and touch the bark of an ancient tree and inhale a breath of air so pure, it’s intoxicating.

Each of the air-conditioned suites at Mashatu Main Camp is tastefully decorated and includes impressive black and white prints of Africa’s most beautiful animals. A double bed and an extra-large single bed, together with a seating area that includes a single day bed, comfortably accommodates families with younger children. The ample en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower facilities and a separate W.C. complete the well-appointed suites.

This is the ideal camp for the family traveler. A large swimming pool is a focal point where MSH Main Campvisitors cool down and relax between game activities. The Discovery Room is the portal through which curious visitors get a glimpse of another world – one that existed long before the appearance of man. The animal specimens and relics will fascinate and educate visitors of all ages, as will the resident crocodiles – both great and small.

Traditional African Cuisine

Meals are a sumptuous celebration of traditional African Cuisine – flavoursome, but lacking in ostentation. Fresh fruits, vegetables, home-made breads and pies, succulent meat dishes and delicious desserts will appeal to a guest who appreciates home cooking at its best.
