Safari Experiences

Photographic Safari

Wildlife photography requires patience, preparation, dedication and a guide that understands how to get you into the right position for that perfect capture. You also need space for your equipment and the perfect window seat view. In short – you need to go on a dedicated photographic safari.

Be part of a small group photo safari atmosphere where our internationally recognized wildlife photographic guide will pay full attention to photographic details and the specific needs of both amateur and serious wildlife photographers.

If you prefer smaller groups and are serious about your wildlife photography but also want an unforgettable holiday in Africa filled with priceless experiences, then do not miss out on our photographic safari departures.

Your trip is hosted by the renowned wildlife photographer, Phil Gould, providing tuition and guidance and advise throughout your tour. There is no doubt you will return home with perfectly captured moments to share with everyone.
