….specialist wildlife photographer and experienced photographic safari guide

Zimbabwe born Brendon Cremer’s passion for Africa and African wildlife is apparent in his wonderful photography. He spent his early childhood outdoors and developed a love of nature which quickly became a large part of his life.

During his school years he became heavily involved in the conservation and research of the school’s own game reserve. Brendon spend the long school holidays working in Kariba and the Matusadona National Park. This gave him the ideal opportunity to build on his knowledge of African nature and wildlife.

On completing his education, Brendon went to work in the Matusadona National Park where he studied all aspects of the African bush. Insects, mammals, birds, plants, flora and fauna all became a big part of his life.

With his apprenticeship under his belt, Brendon Cremer became a professional guide. He conducted walking trails within the Matusadona National Park, stalking and tracking big game and studying animal behaviour. Brendon spent a few years in Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park, the Lower Zambezi and Hwange National Parks and in Botswana and Zambia. Settling in the Kazangula area on the Upper Zambezi in Victoria Falls and in the Chobe National Park where he guided big game, walking trails, fishing and birding safaris. It was during this time that Brendon developed his “obsession” for photography.

The collapse of the economy and political unrest in Zimbabwe forced his family to return to South Africa (where his family’s roots were). Brendon and his wife worked at the Sabi Sand Game Reserve as Lodge Managers. This was the perfect opportunity for Brendon to spend 4 years photographing the resident wildlife, including the reserve’s big cats.  He built an extensive understanding and knowledge of feline habitats and habits – they remain one of his big passions.

Today, based in Nelspruit, Brendon works as a Conservationist, tour leader, guide, adventurer and specialist wildlife photographer. He guides and hosts workshops, photography tours, and photographic safaris in eastern and southern Africa.

Brendon Cremer says he has a “deep respect and understanding for Africa and its wildlife”.

He aims, through his safaris, to “allow the traveller not only to enhance their photography but to gain a lifelong admiration for Africa and her culture.

Being a professional wildlife photographer, photographic guide and a highly experienced safari guide myself, I know what the photographer is after. I ensure that my photo safari, workshop or tour is a photographic adventure of a lifetime.” Guests return home with “not only exceptional images but also a new admiration for Africa and its wildlife.”

Brendon describes his photography as “capturing a moment in time that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce”.
