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.

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.
