Tanzania Photographic Safaris

Tanzania Wildlife Photographic Safari Consideration should be given before travelling with any lens bigger than 400 mm as most interesting shots are taken using hand-held equipment. The new high-resolution digital cameras are outstanding and give great quality images. The advantage of digital photography is that you get instant feedback and adjustments can be made in the field to your techniques to ensure that your photographs are of high quality. If you are interested in wildlife photography, a Tanzania safari will be a perfect destination you would not want to miss because of its diverse photographic opportunities. We make Tanzania photo safaris to fulfill special requests from professional photographers and photographic associations.

Highlights of this safari are the unusual Ngorongoro Crater, beautiful scenery, excellent predator action in particular Lion and Cheetah. You also have the opportunity to witness many thousands of Wildebeest and Zebra on the open grass plains of the Southern Serengeti, with their new borns. The chances of seeing births are very high.

Most photographers that come for African photo trips take wildlife photography as a profession but the good quality of today’s equipment makes excellent results possible for anyone. The choice of the correct camera equipment and film will determine the quality of your photographs. A good SLR camera with telephoto lens is necessary for good photography of birds and animals. A zoom lens can be extremely useful on photographic tours Africa and the minimum recommended size is 200mm. Most of your photos will probably be taken on an 80-200mm lens.
