Photography

They say photography is a love affair with life. It is a universal language spoken by many, regardless of age, background or geography, and it gives permanence to life’s most treasured moments. Photos conjure up memories and transport us back in time. They encourage us to dream and they allow us to share our most cherished moments with others.

And with Mother Nature as the canvas, and the earth’s ever-entertaining wildlife as the subjects, it’s no surprise that photographic safaris are so popular. Many of our expert guides, across three different continents, are passionate about photography and with the natural world as their “office”, they are fortunate to be able to hone their skills on a daily basis.

Here, we’ll share tips and tricks from our specialist (and award-winning) photographic guides and inspire you with breathtaking travel and wildlife photography from around the world. When in doubt, travel … and be sure take lots of photos!
