Photogrpahic safaris that cover distances between National Parks in Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and Namibia by road, use closed 4x4 safari vehicles, mostly Landcruiser, with a roof hatch for photography.

Accommodation Photographic safari accommodation can be customized to all budgets and interests, from rough camping to 5 star lodges. Only lodges and camps will be chosen with no more than 6 guests on a vehicle and private vehicles available, if requested. When traveling by road throughout the photographic safari, guests will have their private 4x4 vehicle and will not depend on the vehicles of the lodges or camps. All offered lodges and camps have good/high standards regarding room quality, food, location and service. Details will be advised according to guest requirements.
