More Info

Important info for participants

Required level: The tours are open to all wildlife/photography enthusiasts. (Beginners, semi pro's or pros)

What to expect from me: I will personally give insights on various photography techniques that would help you capture stunning images. Areas of discussion include: composition, editing, camera settings, animal behaviour, lighting, etc.

Different from regular tourist tours: For our tours, we focus more on quality rather than quantity. We prioritise spending more time with animals, observing them and exploring different technical angles to create great photos.

Photography tailored vehicles and guides: Our local safari guides are highly trained and experienced that also thoroughly understand photographer's needs.

Number of people per vehicle: During safari, we maximise 3 participants per vehicle (including myself but excluding the driver) to ensure each person gets enough space and freedom to capture photos during key moments.

Respect to animals: We give priority to conducting responsible safaris by respecting the animals in their habitat.
