Got questions about our tours?


How long have you been in business for?

With over three decades of expertise in the safari and photography industry, we are uniquely positioned to offer you an unparalleled safari experience, ensuring the finest photography opportunities available.

Do I have to be a professional photographer?

Our tours are open to everyone. Irrespective of your interest level or camera gear we guarantee you will improve your skills and have fun.

How often are your tours available?

Due to the rainy season and wildlife proximity, our group tours are scheduled Sept-March, June-August. Outside of these times, we create custom tours to meet individual needs.

Can I bring my non-photographer family and friends?

Our tours are designed for everyone to enjoy the safari experience. If traveling with someone you will not only save on your combined tickets but if there are three or more of you in your group you also have a dedicated vehicle and driver all to yourself.

Is it safe on safari?

The safari business has had over 100 years to perfect rules and regulations.  Drivers and companies are insured and receive formal training covering topics like how close they can get to animals, driving off-road, etc. For guests, there are restrictions concerning venturing out of vehicles and camps. Mostly it’s just common sense.

I am traveling alone on my first safari, what tour do you recommend?

We have many single guests coming on our small group tour. It will allow you space to enjoy your trip but also the opportunity to meet like-minded travelers and experience a safe, amazing adventure.
