13 day Namibia Safari - Thanks Arne, We had an absolutely fantastic time! A wonderful group of people, spectacular scenery and experiences, and both Mike and Peter looked after us brilliantly! The only downside was having to leave so early.

Our 13 day Namibia trip organised by Arne was way beyond any expectation I had before embarking on the journey. Every day was a highlight and just when we thought it couldn't get any better, it did. My soul is re-awakened to the wonder of planet earth. Thank you Arne and thank you Africa

In January 2015 my wife and I were in Sydney for a concert and we called in at the travel show on the Sunday. Africa was on our radar and loaded with brochures and contacts we set about establishing what sort of experience we were looking for in Africa. We wanted to view animals of course, not just the ‘big 5’, but also the amazing array of birds and scenery that Africa has to offer, all the while taking great photos of our ‘once in a lifetime trip’. After talking to 3 different companies who were ‘Africa travel specialists’ it was through an acquaintance that we came across Arne Muller, how fortunate and lucky for us.! As it was our first trip to the African continent, we asked Arne for her suggestions and she in turn considered what we wanted to see and do, we ended up with a detailed itinerary that exceeded our expectations ten fold. We were picked up from jo’burg airport, by Arne and Mike, our safari driver and guide, heading to Kruger park for a week
....and what a week it was! And that was just the start of a 6 week trip that we will never forget.
The combination of their safari, photography, in depth knowledge and travel planning meant that we ended up with plenty of ‘wow’ moments, a greater understanding of what we were looking at and a great lot of photos that we will treasure for years to come. Arne’s recommendations were spot on, from our camping trip in Botswana, bayette lodge in Victoria Falls, gorgeous Bottlierskop game reserve, Africa flights, and so much more! Arne’s skill at putting it all together was faultless and we are so fortunate to be able to enjoy and benefit from Arne and Mike’s experience. Local knowledge is absolutely vital to getting the best out of a trip to Africa. I can 100% recommend Arne Muller for those travellers who are looking for great experiences in Africa. We cannot wait to return! Namibia and Tanzania...just for starters!

Animal utopia. Scenery overload & the best tour guides that now are good friends. Absolutely amazing & unforgettable 5 week trip of a lifetime. Thank you Arne & Mike.

In 2015 I toured with Arné Muller’s Photo Safaris from Cape Town to Livingstone via Namibia, Botswana, and Zambia in 2015. Although it was a fairly long tour, approx 6,000km over 23 days, the bus was air conditioned and comfortable. The windows could also be opened which provided for easy shooting in game reserves.
As a wildlife photographer living in Australia, I knew that Africa was going to throw a lot of new and exciting photographic opportunities at me. I also wanted the company I chose to offer a little more than just a tour. They offered a huge and diverse variety of places and subjects, credit to Arné and her team.
Pieter, the driver was also excellent and at no time did I or any others on the tour feel concern for his abilities. Mike, their guide was not only an excellent wildlife photographer, he also had an in depth knowledge of the wildlife. This made it so much easier when it came to identifying the species of birds and animals we encountered. In the game reserves you are not allowed out of the vehicle of course and with Mike’s expertise and experience allowed him to position our vehicle such as to get the best angle and light for each situation. It makes a huge difference if you are shooting in the right spot. If you are a keen nature photographer I could not recommend Arne’ Muller’s Photo Safaris high enough.

Where do I begin to write a review?
I've just returned from the trip of a lifetime. My husband and I were part of a group of 17 people on tour. Every single day was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble to Arne and her team. Our group couldn't believe the variety of photographic opportunities available to us. We photographed landscapes, animals galore and portraits of beautiful people. We met Himba, Damara and Herero people and learned so much about the African way of life. I highly recommend this company. It far exceeded our expectations. Every single day was exciting and our guide Mike was very well informed.If you are looking to book a holiday and have an interest in photography, look no further.

Arne has put together an extensive and all-inclusive itinerary (meals, entry fees, cruises etc) with a budget conscious price point to ensure that the client covers off many of the locations and attractions that you dream about. A fast paced, small group tour with extensive drive times to meet all destinations, with several two night stays to break up the pace, in a mix of budget to 3-4 star lodges/accommodation.
There are too many highlights to mention them all, but the most exciting and treasured memory for me is the Etosha National Park with all the wildlife, my heaven, oh and Chobe National Park for the wildlife cruising WOW, WOW, WOW. The quality and quantity of service and food along the way at all locations is amazing, the African people were a pleasure to meet and communicate, but remember it is African timing. I would not hesitate to repeat this trip in the future.

We recently completed trip #4, Cape Town to Livingstone (Aug-Sep 2015). It was everything we hoped for and more. Saw and photographed more than we thought possible. The scenery was also fantastic, varied and very photographic.
The trip organization was excellent, everything went as it should, the accommodation was varied from basic to excellent. Michael Miles was an excellent guide nicked named Mr Google. Peter was an excellent driver and Arné provided everything else.
Thanks we had a great time. We would recommend a similar trip to anyone with a wish to explore southern Africa with a sense of adventure. Every day was different.

What a brilliant trip. Appreciate all the fantastic efforts of Arne and her team of Mike and Peter.

I had the best time on my trip with Arne Muller Photographic Safaris. I have always dreamed of going to Africa and every single part of the trip lived up to my high expectations. There was a great variety of sights to be seen from Table Mountain in Cape Town South Africa to going on a safari in Etosha National Park in Namibia.
We stayed in a range of great accommodation and we always traveled in a big group so I felt very safe. We had local tour guides taking us around, who were very knowledgeable and I learnt so much from them. The only negative of the trip was that I had so much fun that it went too fast! I highly recommend seeing Africa through Arne Muller Photographic Safaris and I am planning on going to Kenya with them next year because I had such a wonderful holiday

Can't thank Arne enough for our African adventure ... she went out of her way to provide us with a very memorable holiday ... see you in 2017 Arne!

Having a fantastic time with Arne and Mike on what is turning out to be a great photographic adventure.
Leaving only foot prints and taking home AWSOME photos.
Mary Kellam, Sydney Australia
just wanted to thank Arne Muller Photographic Safaris for making a dream of mine into reality. Starting in Livingstone Zambia from Victoria Falls to ending in South Africa in Cape Town, it was indeed a travel experience of a lifetime. The photographic opportunities were plentiful, well planned with knowledgeable guide Mike and safely transported by Peter.
Getting so close and personal with animals in the wild and having seen the beautiful people and landscapes of Africa is an experience I will always treasure especially the desert elephants of Namibia and I look forward to our next trip with Arne to Kenya.
Karen Storer, Sydney Australia
My dream of finally getting to Africa came true and it is one of the best holidays I have had. It lived up to the expectations with so many different things to see. I always felt looked after, safe and confident with the expertise of Arne, Mike (the guide) and Peter (driver). I would recommend this tour for anyone wanting a unique and exhilarating experience.
