photographic SERVICES

Guests have the opportunity to book various services with Anja, our Guest Photographic Specialist. 

Born in Germany but raised in Greytown, a small town in KwaZulu-Natal, Anja has spent much of her childhood visiting game reserves in the area and trips to the Kruger National Park were a regular occurrence.

Whilst living in England, every trip home to South Africa had to include a visit to the bush. It was during her years in London that her passion for photography grew. She studied photography at the London Academy of Media, Film and TV and spent each school holiday traveling to a new destination with her camera in her backpack. Travel photography grew into family photography and eventually into wedding photography. But nothing compared to her South African holidays in the bush as this allowed her to combine her passion for photography and the wild. Needless to say, she has been a keen wildlife photographer for well over a decade.

In 2009 she moved to Umhlanga, South Africa, where for the last 10 years she has built a name for herself as a wedding and portrait photographer. Here at Makanyi, guests can book Anja to do photo shoots, document their holiday, capture special events (weddings, proposals etc) and edit their safari photos. They can even book a session with her in the photographic studio to turn their game drive photos into beautiful canvases.

With these services we hope to make your stay even more memorable!
