Curated and conjured by Photo Master Julian W., this South Africa aficionado has visited the country more than 35 times, and knows the country like the back of his hand.  A professional wildlife photographer and a certified South African Specialist awarded by the South Africa Tourism Organization, Julian designed this itinerary that will show you the very best of everything South African – From food & scenery, to wildlife & culture!

The world-renowned Garden Route is one of the most scenic routes in the World and entails some of the most spectacular scenery and activities that one can find while on holiday. There are simply too many interesting things to cover and photograph, but this program ensures that participants get the utmost photo opportunities.

Photographers and animal/nature lovers are welcomed.  Availability is extremely limited and interested participants are advised to confirm as early as possible.

Only 6 spots are available.  Minimum 4 to travel.  Sign up soon to avoid disappointment as this is one of our signature exploration packages for 2019.

About the Explorer Expedition:

Unlike other trips that pamper our guests for a wholesome, well-planned & a carefully curated experience, the itineraries under the Explorer Expedition series are entirely different.  This series is geared for those with an insatiable adventure spirit, motivated to explore the unknown, and ready to expect the unexpected.

The idea is simple:  Do not ask us about what to do, what to bring, what to expect and what would the itinerary be.  It would be as new a destination as it would be for you.  The only information we would be able to provide would be the destination, time needed, and the ballpark cost.  Other information would be provided as and when they become available, and itineraries may be proned to be changed at the very last minute.

So are you the Explorer that we are looking for?

If you are, embrace that adventurous spirit and you will be richly rewarded with unexpected surprises and an unforgettable travel experience!  We are looking for like-minded adventurers with an open spirit, who would like to join this series for each new destination that we are going to explore.  Every trip will be lead by an expedition leader from TopLiners Club,  and each trip will only be open to a maximum of 4 adventurers.

If you are keen to sign up for this series, please contact us at contact@toplinersclub.com to register your interest.  Only the BOLD explorer need apply.


The Tour Leader/Photo Master on trip:

Julian W. first started weaving images with light in 1992.  He honed his photography skills by immersing himself in fashion, portrait and commercial photography, but soon found these pursuits a little too monotonous for his liking.

To challenge himself, he listened to his inner callings and venture into nature photography soon after.  His works soon caught the attention of Animal Planet, Sony, HSBC, Singtel, Vitagen, and many various wildlife institutions

Today, this workaholic runs 4 companies, which includes a brand agency and a full-fledged travel agency that is registered with the Singapore Tourism Board.

Julian is also the brainchild for Singapore Photography Meets, a photography community that has more than 6000  members.

For more information, please contact us at contact@toplinersclub.com
