About Clickety click safaris

The philosophy underlying clickety click and our photo safaris and workshops is simple:

“it’s all about you, the traveller and photography enthusiast.”

Michelle2Our goal is to provide you with a truly unique experience. We will introduce you to some of the most beautiful corners of Southern Africa and will provide you with a wealth of photography knowledge, tips and advice on how to produce the most stunning photographs.

Clickety click safaris is owned and run by Michelle.

Michelle was born on the Isle of Wight and grew up mainly in the South and South West of England, with the exception of spending some of her teenage years in Greece. This early experience abroad was where her passion for travel and photography began and it has continued to grow ever since.

From the days of her very first Brownie, Michelle never ventures anywhere without her trusted camera. 

After leaving school, she acquired a degree in Maths and Actuarial Studies, which led her to enter the insurance world in the City of London where she worked as an insurance broker for a total of 12 years. Her time in the insurance industry involved a fair amount of travel, including a significant stint in San Francisco, where she single-handedly set up an overseas office, tackling the many challenges that came her way, while at the same time enjoying the opportunity to photograph some incredibly beautiful scenery.bct wednesday 105-1

Upon returning to London, however, donning a suit day in, day out (not to mention commuting!) gradually lost its appeal and so one day Michelle decided to walk away from the insurance world and pursue her two true passions: travel and photography

Ever since, Michelle has been working as a freelance photographer, while equipping herself with a Diploma in Photography. She has participated in several overseas photographic holidays, which have included Yosemite National Park, the Taiga Forests of Finland, the Greek island of Syros and in 2010 she movedto St Lucia, South Africa whre te photographic opportunities are endless! Her true love is wildlife photography but she has also photographed over 45 weddings. Michelle is also a fully qualified FGASA nature guide.

Michelle has seen most parts of the world and never seems to tire of exploring new places and experiencing new cultures.

Setting up clickety click has allowed her to combine her two great interests – photography and travel.
