WILD4 African photo safaris TANZANIA photo tour
AMBOSELI & TANZANIA photo safari 2016
Join Wild4 Photographic Safaris on a photo safari to witness one of nature's spectacles. We have timed this safari to coincide with the the gathering of the Great Migration herds on the expansive short grass plains in the Ndutu region of the Ngorongoro Conservation area. Here thousands of Wildebeest and Zebra give birth to the next generation of the "mega herd".

Our tour however begins with a one night stop overn in Nairobi followed by 3 nights in the world famous Amboseli National Park, famous for its Elephants and the impressive back drop of the snow capped Mount Kilimanjaro. This stop over will provide some of the best Elephant photography in Africa.

We will continue by road to the Namanga Border post and cross over into Tanzania where we head for Arusha and a one night stop over.

From Arusha we drive west to the famous Serengeti National Park, arriving around midday and after checking in through the main gate we begin exploring the central Serengeti, photographing en-route to our accommodation in the center of the Serengeti . We spend a total of 3 nights exploring the varied landscapes, which include the Kopjes (granite outcrops of rock) these offer fantastic scenic shots and are a characteristic of the central Serengeti.

We then head south to the Ndutu area, photographing along the way. We now enter a different landscape, open short grass plains. This is where the Wildebeest and Zebra gather in their thousands during the first months of the year, and this is the main focus of the photo safari.. The grass is sweet, it is open and here they give birth to their young.

Of course the predators are never too far behind and we spend the next 5 nights exploring this area which includes Lake Ndutu and Lake Masek. Our lodge is located near Lake Ndutu.

Our safari then heads back towards the Ngorongoro Crater and we arrive here at midday. We have a full day and a morning session of photography inside the crater and overnight for 2 nights at Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge which is only 10 mins. from the entrance to the decent road into the Crater. This ancient collapsed volcano is truly a wonder to see. The crater floor is heavily populated with a variety of animals and the wall of the crater offers a dramatic backdrop for photography.

After breakfast on our final day we continue our road journey back to Kilimanjaro airport where we will be able to connect with our international flights.

The tour will accommodate a maximum of 6 participants in 3 vehicles (2 participants per vehicle). Stu Porter will lead the tour and will alternate between the vehicles each day to offer photo tuition and guidance.

Highlights of this safari are the famous Elephants of Amboseli, seeing the "mega herd" with many of their new borns, the unusual Ngorongoro Crater, beautiful scenery, excellent predator action in particular Lion and Cheetah. A variety of plains game and excellent birdlife.
