We are delighted to be repeating a number of small group wildlife photography tours and safaris to Kenya, Botswana and Canada in 2017. On each of our private and group photographic safaris (max. group size 8 people) we provide plenty of photographic tuition out in the field to ensure maximising all photographic opportunities to their best advantage and we share our vast experience of photographing the endemic mammal & bird species to ensure you return home with some memorable images. We provide advice and tuition at either a basic or a more advanced level both in the field and back at camp, the extent of which is very much dependent on each individual guest preference. Non-photographers are always very welcome on our photography tours and safaris, however all we ask is that you come with a willingness to endure some early starts and sometimes long days. However, in return you will reap the rewards of some fabulous wildlife experiences.
