Charlotte is a Wildlife Photographer, Blogger and Safari Specialist.

She has spent the last decade traveling to wildlife destinations across Africa, Asia, and Latin America. What once started as a hobby has now become a profession and a lifestyle. Her brand charlotteonsafari began as a portfolio of her wildlife images, but due to the demand, evolved into a platform for helping people plan their own safaris.

“What I realized is that, while planning a safari is simple for me, it’s overwhelming for most. People don’t even know where to start.”

Charlotte now offers two professional services as a Safari Specialist:

  • Creates personalized safari itineraries and bookings through her partnership with a reputable boutique travel agency based in Johannesburg.

  • Hosts private and group photographic safaris.

Charlotte has organized safaris ranging from ultra-budget to ultra-luxury. She believes that a great safari is possible for every budget. For those wanting a hosted experience and photographic expertise, she can be booked to accompany guests on trips. There is no added cost to booking a safari through Charlotte and itineraries include a fully transparent and itemized breakdown of spend.


For questions on anything from travel advice to safari planning or photography tips, I’d love to hear from you!

Charlotte has a bachelor’s degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and completed additional training in wildlife and conservation management at the Kenya School for Field Studies and UC Santa Barbara Bren School of Environmental Management. Charlotte developed an interest in photography after years of biological field  work. Her interest in big cat conservation led her to conduct post-grad field work on several wild cat species including leopards, ocelots, and jaguars. Her passion for photography grew as a result of wanting to raise awareness for conservation and the preciousness of threatened species. Charlotte lived on a game reserve in South Africa for two years as the resident photographer.

Charlotte currently lives between California USA and South Africa. She is a contributing blogger and photographer for Lion Sands and Luxury MORE hotels.
