Experiencing mother nature in her purest form, while on our photo safaris in Africa, leaves one with the feeling of wonderment, awe and exhilaration.

It leaves you feeling as though he has touched your soul.

Important Information about our safaris.
More Important Safari Information:
On our Safaris we stay in first class luxury lodges and permanent tented safari camps.
In Kenya and Tanzania our tours are limited to 18 people, including the leaders. In Kenya and Tanzania we have a maximum of only three passengers (unless you would like more) per nine passenger 4X4 Land Cruiser safari vehicle. You will be able to photograph through windows on BOTH sides of the vehicle and also from the top, which pops up to create shade so you are protected from the hot, equatorial sun. Compared to other tours that pack the vans with up to eight people, this is a huge deal!
Please don’t be intimidated from enjoying one my photo safaris just because you are not a photographer or you don’t use a “great camera.” If you enjoy wildlife you will love these safaris and more than likely you’ll come home with some great photos too!
As we leave the lodges, the vehicles separate and spread out. This allows us to have all of our guides out looking for wildlife. They each have radios to let each other know what they find. This way no one misses out on seeing the wildlife and with our great guides, you can hardly believe all of the wildlife they find. Our guides are amazing!
Our African safaris really are the trip of a lifetime! I can hardly believe how fortunate I was to have been born and grown up in East Africa. Now that I am able to take people with me and share what I know about photography along with my personal experiences of Africa, I am thrilled so many clients return and say to me “that was the best trip I have ever been on” or “thank you for the vacation of a lifetime! I want to go again in a year or two!”
I hope you will consider joining me on an exciting African photo safari in the future. It will be your trip of a lifetime! Why not join us this year?
Enjoy each day, Paul
