Botswana is Africa's premier destination for PREDATOR PHOTOGRAPHY. Within it's pristine wilderness lie rich populations of Wild Dog, Leopard, Lion and prey. Our predator safaris are in September when the light is warm, the days are long, and the tension between predator and prey is fierce. We have dedicated our Botswana Photo Safaris to capturing the dramatic wildlife confrontations that occur when the tension between predator and prey overflows. Our Ten day, all-inclusive photo safaris take you deep into the world famous Okavango Delta and Chobe national park; these stunning locations make the perfect backdrop to dramatic wildlife images. When you join our exclusive predator photo safaris, you will find yourself in the thick of the action with fantastic opportunities to photograph not just the big predators but Africa's other iconic wildlife. All that is needed is you and your camera…

The annual WILDEBEEST MIGRATION is one of the greatest wildlife photography events on earth. Our Tanzania Photo Safari joins the migration in the north of the Serengeti National Park. It is here that in excess of one million Wildebeest converge on the Crocodile infested waters of the Mara river. Beyond this river lie the fresh grasslands of the Masai Mara, behind the massive herds are a host of predators. This is a place of high drama and action, at a time of year when the light is soft and warm. Aside from the fantastic predator photography this is your opportunity to be on the banks of the Mara river ready to capture the frenzied river crossings of thousands of Wildebeest at a time.

From here we venture for 3 days to Rwanda to witness the Mountain Gorillas in Volcanoes National Park.

Become part of an exclusive photo safari (max 4) dedicated to photographing this truly remarkable natural event, enjoy the benefits of photographing off-track from open-sided safari vehicles and go out on foot to meet with the world's most amazing but highly endangered primates: click here for detailed safari information, dates and prices.
