Renner Safaris

Dream, Explore, Discover

A trip off a life time is worth waiting for. The 2013 safari itineraries and prices have arrived.   The May 2013 Botswana Safari and Rwanda Gorilla Trek itineraries and prices will be available shortly.

We are proud to continue offering seventeen and eighteen day safaris. Travel and  accommodations have been upgraded for your comfort. We will be going to BOTH Kenya and Tanzania. In Kenya, rather than driving for hours on the long, rough, dusty road to the Mara, we will be flying into the Mara, landing at an airstrip only a ten minute drive to the lodge.

We have also upgraded our luxury permanent tented camp location in the Mara.  We will be staying right in the heart of some of the best wildlife country in the world!

Being a wildlife photographer and knowing the area, (I was born and raised in East Africa) I take my clients to locations where we will have the best opportunities to capture those iconic images that we have dreamed of for a lifetime.

I will be photographing on our game drives too, but I am available to answer your questions and let you know how I am photographing each subject so you can learn more about photography and bring home your own great photos too.

On our Tanzania/Kenya safaris we have only three passengers per nine passenger vehicle giving you plenty of space for you and your photo equipment. You can 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! Our African photo safaris are limited to eighteen people, including the leaders.

As we leave the lodges, the vehicles separate and spread out. This allows us to have up to six guides out looking for wildlife. They each have radios to share what they find. This way no one misses out on seeing the wildlife! With six great guides, you will hardly believe all of the wildlife they find. We have trained them to understand lighting, composition and what we are trying to achieve. Our guides are awesome!

Our safaris are designed for the ultimate photographic experience, however 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 your own great photos too!

To avoid disappointment, make your reservations today. To reserve your space on our photo safaris, please call Paul Renner at (949) 295-3136, or email him at: paulrenner3@cox.net or call Prem Sharma at Best Safaris (800) 757- 6625.
