Janet Kleyn

Resident wildlife Photographer

Janet manages our C4 photographic concession at Mashatu Game Reserve in the Northern Tuli block of Botswana.  A nature lover at heart, Janet is a qualified nature and trails guide as well as a professional photographer.   

Since 2017, Janet has been our “hide” lady, accompanying guests to our photographic hides as well as on our photo vehicle. In this role she shares her expert advice, tuition and tips to help her clients take their photography to the next level.  With such an amazing array of wildlife experiences from the hide, she prides herself on her client focus and making the best possible experience for each individual, whether they photograph with a phone or the latest pro equipment.  For Janet “it’s about the experience of being in nature, as much as getting the photograph – and if you loving the experience you’re bound to reflect that in your photography”.

This mantra has served her well, with countless numbers of repeat guests returning to Mashatu to either book private safaris with Janet, spend time in the hides with her. 

In addition to managing the hide concessions, Janet has been at the forefront of setting up and launching the C4 Atelier and is one of the master photographers in the Atelier with whom guests can book an online tutor session with.
