The different elements of an Africa photography safari package:
The photographer: Before booking your Africa photography safari package, think about your specific photographic passions and expectations. Is it true wilderness, away from the maddening crowds of tourists, that you find most appealing or perhaps are you looking to specifically photograph cheetah, leopard, flamingos or gorillas? Do you enjoy African savanna landscapes, traditional cultures or African wildlife photography – or perhaps a combination of all three!

Africa Photographic Safaris Packages
Where and When: The most elementary decision will be which country or combination of countries to visit on your Africa photography safari package. There is however, far more to African wildlife photography, as nature beats to her own rhythm – we need to understand her cycles and seasons if we want to maximize our photographic opportunities. For example, there is a certain time of year that the wildebeest cross the Mara River and a certain time of year that they migrate in Serengeti National park and at times wildlife disappears into the inaccessible Miombo Woodland of Ruaha National Park.
Location: The next important step in Africa photographic travel is choosing the right camps or lodges that will allow you as a wildlife photographer to access the best areas and at the right time of day, to make use of the golden light. For example, the Masai Mara has many camps but there are only a few that allow quick access to the various wildebeest crossing points or that allow one to get away from other vehicle traffic. Using the correct safari camp or lodge is a key component of an African photography safari! Exclusive use of a vehicle with freedom and flexibility is also essential to allow a nature photographer the time and freedom to work a particular subject or area. Does the safari camp have sufficient power for the running of laptops and charging of batteries? How far is the safari camp from the best game viewing areas? Can we alight from the vehicle or drive off-road? The answer to these simple questions can mean the difference between a successful African safari photography tour or not. We provide the best camps during your Africa photography safari package.
Tour Guide: Another key component to successful Africa photography safari package is that of your guide! Africa has many excellent local driver guides with exceptional knowledge of fauna and flora.
