In collaboration with Tambula Safaris I will be organising a limited number photo safaris to Uganda. The first of these will take place from 26 October to 9 November 2020. Our goal is to enable you to capture intimate portraits of the iconic wildlife for which Africa is renowned in their natural environments, and to improve your photography skills.
Uganda is unique as a wildlife destination because it is the only country in the world in which you can see the classic Big Five – lions, leopards, rhinos, buffalos and elephants – as well as wild chimpanzees and gorillas. In Uganda you can track rhinos, gorillas and chimps on foot and spend time photographing them close-up in their natural environments.
There is nothing quite like the experience of observing gorillas and rhinos feeding peacefully a few meters away, or of being caught in the midst of a band of wild chimps rushing through the forest screaming and drumming on the buttresses of large trees, whether you are a photographer or not. The experience is made all the more poignant by the knowledge that many of these animals are under threat due to poaching, habitat loss and conflict with local communities. This is particularly true for the rhinos, mountain gorillas and chimpanzees.
Our goal in organising these photo safaris is to enable you to capture intimate portraits of these and many more iconic animals in their natural environments and to improve your photography skills.
IS THIS PHOTO SAFARI FOR YOU?
Our photo safaris are aimed at photographers at beginner and intermediate levels, although all levels are welcome. It includes group and individual instruction adapted to your level. We aim to meet everyone’s photographic needs. There are daily group sessions in which we discuss your photos and give advice, and individually tailored feedback and assistance with editing your images. This is all optional and you are free to make as much or as little use of this as you like.
We travel with a small group of maximum six people. So everyone has a window seat in the vehicle and gets sufficient attention and feedback. The approach is hands-on and we spend most of our time taking photos, evaluating them and working on the techniques needed to capture great wildlife photos.
Non-photographer travel companions are most welcome and will also enjoy these safaris because the focus is on taking our time to experience and get to know the animals in their natural environments and enjoy Uganda and all it has to offer.
