Tanzania is a country to be taken very seriously if you are looking for incredible photo opportunities but also want to experience real Africa.

 

This is also a country that non-photographing partners really enjoy for its wild beauty, plethora of wildlife and the accommodation, food and hospitality, all of which are first class.

 

Any ‘bespoke best of Tanzania’ itinerary will include a leg in the Serengeti. Arguably Africa’s greatest park and 10 times greater in size than the Masai Mara, the Serengeti is the true home of the great migration.

 

Of course the predators don’t migrate so sometimes we visit the Serengeti just for the cats, whether it be cheetahs hunting in the south or lions aloft granite koppies in the east.

 

Whether the herds are calving or passing through the western corridor, you absolutely have to experience the ‘last large mammal migration’ left on the planet.

 

 


Then there is the Ngorongoro Crater. This is the largest intact volcanic crater in the world and destination far too quickly dismissed by photographers. I have unlocked the secrets to photographing in the Ngorongoro Crater and I would love to take you there

View my Africa’s Eden gallery.

In the west of Tanzania lie the Mahale Mountains, home to the largest wild population of chimpanzees in the world. The camp’s location is out of this world. Watch this YouTube video. The chimp trekking is non-commercial in small groups; only camp residents partake and the camp only has 6 rooms – we split into two groups. The guides are excellent.

 

You have to photograph our closest living relatives at least once in your lifetime.

 

The eastern arm of the great rift valley runs through Tanzania and a ‘bespoke best of Tanzania’ itinerary usually includes incredible aerial photography from a helicopter over Ol’ Donyo Lengai volcano and Lake Natron, with all its flamingoes and spectacular rift valley scenery. This flight will take your breath away! If you really enjoy birds and bird photography then a safari leg in Nyere National Park (aka Selous) is an absolute must. Watch this YouTube video from a bespoke safari I lead to the wild heart of Africa. And if you love fly-camping in the African bush then a Tanzania southern circuit safari to Selous and Ruaha is your dream.

 

Photographing baobabs and stars in Ruaha is a must.

Bespoke Photographic Safari Guest Testimonials

'Good morning Greg. I trust you got home safely. Thanks for being such an incomparable guide and company. See you in February, if not before (maybe October).'

Stephen and Eric Cheek (UK)
'It was such a privilege to spend a week with Greg. On all levels he is a joy to spend time in the bush with. Its really apparent through his passion, knowledge and talent why he was The Wildlife Photographer of the Year. We had some amazing sightings. From following mating leopards for 5 hours on my birthday to packs of wild dogs, cheetahs, and 19 different leopards. Oh, and two snakes! And of course, spending some time with Claire was very special to us.'

Deborah Keener Brown (USA)
'Dear Greg, the training and experience with you has been even better than we expected. You bring out the best of Africa as you teach us each day to appreciate the animals and capture the best moments with pictures. You are patient and professional and we look forward to another journey with you. Best to you, Bob 'the camera caddy' and Jacquie.'

Bob and Jacquie Paul (USA)
'Hey Greg, It took three days to download and organize my 5412 files! You blew me away with your kindness, graciousness, and expertise. Okay, so now I am bit and I can't wait to go back. The wild is the only thing that makes sense and I understand what motivates you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for introducing me to your world and for sharing your experience, strength, and hope for the future of conservation.'

Nell Dickerson (USA)
'Greg, thanks so much for the outstanding private safari in the Okavango Delta. The itinerary that you developed gave us a terrific mix of magical Delta experiences, with fine camps and excellent local guides. The most important ingredient in this terrific experience, however, was you. On the photographic front, we were inspired by your commitment to artistic creativity and excellence, as well as ethical practices, in the capturing of wildlife images and greatly appreciated your graciously shared world class photographic expertise. We were delighted to find that you are also a knowledgeable naturalist, with wide-ranging expertise and engaging stories (and a voluminous reference library on your phone!) about both the fauna and the flora of Africa. We were encouraged by your commitment to conservation! We look forward eagerly to joining you in the Masai Mara next year and in the South Rift Valley!'

Mark and Bonnie Overgaard (USA)
'Since our very first contact, Greg gave me lots of advices about safari destinations and about photography. He always answered my hundreds mail (sorry Greg 😉 ) helping me to find and book the best travel for shooting hippos and to buy some photographic stuffs I have never seen before. I have known a man who really loves Africa and wildlife and most important, who knows lot of things about Africa and wildlife, but at the same time you can talk to him as you talk to one of your friend. I dont write about his knowledge of photo gears and technique as it would be superfluous. I can only say that my skill level is increased by several steps. His advices during safaris were, in my opinion, the best part of my entire time spent in Kenya. During my time spent in the bush, I really feel myself like a photographer, not like a tourist. Thank you, thank you so much!'

Nicola Cappelletti (Italy)
'We all really enjoyed our family photographic safari with you in Zambia. The Lower Zambezi is a beautiful destination and the most scenic we have seen so far. Robin and I have improved our photographic capabilities which we hopefully won't lose till we see you again😁. Thank you for the personal message in your wonderful AWE book. Have fun with your next trips and hope to see you again soon.' See the adventure on YouTube
