Pictures from 2014 Tanzania Photo Safari

Posted November 25th, 2014 by   |  Photography, Travel  |  Permalink

This year’s Tanzania Photo Safari was one of the best we’ve ever run. We photographed just about everything possible during our adventure and had a blast along the way.

My kit this year included the brand new Nikon D750 and I’m proud to report that it performed like a champ. This camera is a winner as far as I’m concerned and I kept commenting to my participants how much I enjoyed having it along on the adventure. Highly recommended.

Here are a few pics from the trip. Enjoy!

May 2012 Tanzanian Photo Safari

Posted September 2nd, 2011 by   |  Photography, Wildlife, Workshops  |  Permalink

We are headed out to Tanzania in May 2012 for another incredible adventure. Our November 2011 safari is completely sold out so we’ve added a new safari at a different time of year. May brings the wildebeest rut and all the photo opportunities that come with it.

Lodging is phenomenal (top notch) and the food is excellent. Our trips are premium trips as we only allow 3 people per stretch Landcruiser. You get an entire row all to yourself so you can keep your camera bag open on one side while also having an open seat on the right. We have unobstructed views all around the vehicle and incredible access in all the parks.

One of the advantages of going in May is the lower overall cost since it is a lower travel season. Photographically, May can be just as impressive or even more impressive than other times of the year. The truth is that any time in Tanzania is wonderful.
