The surreal landscapes, ancient cultures and incredible wildlife of Africa are favorite subjects among amateur and professional photographers. And no wonder! Abstract shapes of deserts, volcanic terrain, coastlines, savannahs, forests and majestic mountains like Kilimanjaro are bathed in a dream-like light. Following the crest of a distant hill, a warrior figure clad in red garb contrasts sharply with the lush green. As the sun sets, giraffes, elephants and other large mammals transform into darkened silhouettes against a golden sky from the Tanzanian plains of the Serengeti to the majestic rivers like Chobe in Botswana and Zambezi in Zambia and Zimbabwe. High-speed lenses capture the moment of impact when a crocodile traps a wildebeest in its powerful jaws during the Great Herds Migration of the Masai Mara in southwest Kenya. A blur of hoofs and claws shrouds a lion kill in an artistic blur in the Linyanti wilderness including Selinda, Kwando and Savute’s savannah riverine ecosystem in the northern pocket of Botswana. Relish at the sand dunes in Namibia’s Sossusvlei Desert where the shadows from sunset cast beautiful orange and black hues over the harsh rugged landscape with the oryx and springbok in the distance. Trek with African Savannah Trails the distances in Mahale Mountains National Park or Jane Goodall’s famed Gombe Stream National Park in western Tanzania, and take some impressive no-flash low light photography of the grooming and chimp behaviors in action. Alternate silverback gorilla photo experiences are available in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo.
Distinctly culminate your experience in Zanzibar, Mozambique, Mauritius, Madagascar and Seychelles Islands with clear turquoise photography of the warm Indian Ocean waters against the backdrop of white, soft-sandy beach and green-brown coconut fronds. Your Photography Safari by African Savannah Trails is more than just reaching the best locations for superb pictures. We team up with specialist nature photographers and provide you with lessons and expert insights that take your snaps to an almost unimaginable level. You learn that great images are less about the equipment and more about the perception and vision of the photographer.

We offer four levels of photography safaris to meet the requirements of any creative and documentary tour of Africa, including small groups, private individual, workshops and custom photography safaris. If you have no camera or would like to use more advanced cameras and lenses, we arrange for your rentals.
