Why safari photography could be the mental relief you need

There is little doubt that heading off into the Kruger National Park, on that once in a lifetime safari experience, is great for your mental health. Being out in the wild, with no cellphone reception, no crazy shops, and often no busy crowds, can help you reset and recharge in such a way that you can feel more like yourself when you return to your world.

But sometimes, being in the bush is not enough to give you the mental relief you have been longing for. After such a chaotic few years, just getting out of your usual routine might not be enough to actually give you the break that you need, because a lot of what is going on, when it comes to stress, is going on in your mind. And no matter how far away from home you go, you can’t escape the mind.

So you need to do the next best thing, which is to both getaway while also doing something that will take your mind off of things, like photography.

In recent studies, scientists have found that taking out your camera, whether it is a fancy DSLR or something simple but just as effective, like a smartphone camera, and focusing on taking photos of all sorts of things that you see while on your trip, can be the key to unwinding.

By turning into an amateur photographer, even if it is just for the duration of your Kruger Park safari, you can change your perspective on the world and focus on something other than what is going on in your mind. With photography, you can express your creative self and as the studies have shown, by doing so you can reduce the cortisol that is running through your veins.

Photography can also relieve your anxiety and help you regain your confidence, by allowing you to see the world in a different way. And then there is the expressionism, something that will allow you to unleash your inner artist and create something really beautiful.

15 Days Namibia Photo Adventure Safari

Safari Photography

Sitting in the back of a vehicle, or up high in the quiet solitude of a lookout point, with your camera in hand and your eyes looking for that perfect moment, that perfect angle and the perfect lighting, your mind will be completely focused on what is in front of you, instead of what might be bothering you in other parts of your life.

The Kruger offers so much opportunity to see and fall in love with the wildlife that is being preserved and protected here, and photography is one of the best ways to really submerge yourself in the overall safari experience.

After a good enough amount of time spent exploring the park and taking loads of photos, you will likely feel refreshed and revived, ready to face the world once again. And what’s more is that you’ll be heading home with a load of beautiful snaps that you can look back fondly on in future, when you start feeling stressed out once more.
