Where will your camera lead you next?
Untamed Photo Safaris offers our guests many wildlife photographic destinations, all of which highlighting an entirely different variety of wildlife and environments. A great place to start is to ask yourself what you are interested in photographing and see where this takes you. African wildlife varies around the continent so we will need to dig a little deeper if you are thinking about an African Safari. Each country hold something special for our photography clients to experience while on tour with us. Take a look at some of the highlights of each of our incredibly unique photo tour destinations.
Here are the main wildlife highlights of each destination:
How much time will you spend traveling?
Another big influence to consider while planning your photo tour is time. How much time can you spend away from home, away from work, the family, etc. All of our photo safaris are between 9 and 12 days long, making your travel time within a two week period. The more time you spend on safari, the better results you will get, after all, we only work with wild animals (no sanctuaries, zoos, enclosures, bating, etc.). With this being said, we understand taking endless amount of time away is not always possible. We believe guests will have ample photographic opportunities during an approximate 10-day period in all of our destinations. With the help of our local experts our photography specialists will do their best to provide you with as many photographic opportunities as possible.
Selecting your next wildlife photography tour
Each of our tours are offered during the prime time of the year to ensure the best sightings and photographic opportunities in each destination. We currently offer tours in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Botswana, and Namibia. Each offers an exclusive feel, as our largest group size is 6 guests maximum. We keep our numbers small to ensure each guest gets the photographic guidance they need while on tour with Untamed Photo Safaris
