Join us for the adventure of a lifetime to photograph Africa’s amazing wildlife and landscapes!
11/4/14 – 11/15/14
We’ll be photographing the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Tarangire and at private luxury tent camps throughout Northern Tanzania. All with private Land cruisers, professional wildlife guides, catered meals and excellent accommodations. Yes, it is a long ways off, but start planning now for the trip of a lifetime! We are limiting the size to 12 participants and this number includes your Tour Leader.
One of the best aspects of this trip is that we are only allowing three photographers per vehicle. This means that each person will have an entire row to themselves with one seat for their camera gear and the other seat for themselves. There will be plenty of room to move around and everyone will have perfect access to all photo opportunities.
This is a trip for photographers, designed by photographers. Your tour leader, Mike Hagen, works exceedingly hard to help put you in the right spot at the right time.
You’ll be waking up in the early morning hours to take sunrise photos and then staying in the bush late for sunset photos. The goal is perfect light and great images so all decisions we make are around optimizing your photography experience. During the middle part of the day and at night we’ll take a rest at our lodges and bush tents.

What is Provided:
The cost of the November, 2014 Tanzanian Photo Safari is estimated to be $9,400 per person. Because of our early booking, this cost could rise or drop by a small amount, but will be locked-in by early 2014.
This price includes almost everything once you arrive in Africa such as ground transportation, airport transfers, prepaid Tourist Visa, all meals, water, lodging (double room occupancy), Land cruisers, guides, etc.
It does not include your airfare to/from Africa. You’ll need to arrange this on your own, however our outfitter recommends flying KLM via Amsterdam (AMS). Our destination airport in Africa will be Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) and this is where the safari begins on the evening of 11/4/14 and ends on 11/15/14.
Additionally, the price does not include costs associated with getting your passport, medical vaccinations, tips or drinks at lodges.
If you would like single occupancy during this trip, there is an additional fee of $1,650.
