Photographic Safaris in Africa

Wildlife photography and traditional safaris don't often mix. As a photographer, it's always frustrating when your guide, or the people on your safari vehicle, are uninterested in subjects that you would like to photograph. 

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 lots of space and equipment to move in your vehicle. In short - you need to go on a dedicated photographic safari.
