With almost every person owning a digital camera, sadly not knowing how to use it to its full potential, Fine-art Landscape and Travel photographers, Joe & Jonelle Louw soon developed a desire to assist everyday photographers to improve their general travel photography skills. From this ambition thombe SAFARI was born. Through their tremendous passion for nature, the African continent and photography it was decided to keep their business name as local and African as they are. They exposed themselves to another language for some creative inspiration and in a flash “thombe” came up. From the limited Zulu dictionary they chose this name, which is also the meaning for photo or photography in this native language.
thombe SAFARI will allow you the opportunity to visit remarkable and sometimes remote places, while under the watchful eye from two professional photographers. Having travelled to various parts of Southern Africa to capture breathtaking images of unspoilt natural beauty and GREAT PHOTOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS Joe & Jonelle have also become knowledgeable travellers whilst following their true passion of photography.
