With the exception of Mana Pools NP, Zimbabwe, and Gorilla tracking in Rwanda, most photography on our safaris is done from a vehicle.
We have vehicles that are specifically configured for wildlife photography. In Kenya and Tanzania we use 4×4 Land Cruisers with fully opening side windows, enabling photographers to photograph animals on every angle. All vehicles have pop-up roofs or opening roof-hatches for photographers to stand and shoot from the top when needed.
We supply loads of bean bags so guests do not have to carry extra weight and worry about bringing their own, unless you prefer to do so. In this case we can supply you with filling material.
On all our safaris led by Federico Veronesi, we also supply stands for tripods heads to be applied on the side windows, so you are encouraged to bring your own tripod head for excellent mobility.
We provide a full row of seats to each participant or photographer for the entire safari, as we feel it’s crucial to be able to photograph on both sides of the vehicle and have plenty of space for your gear. For couples with only one photographer we offer the possibility to share a row and benefit of a slight reduction in the tour cost. Only one row per vehicle can be shared, for a maximum of 4 people on each vehicle.
Our Land Cruiser in Kenya offers the possibility to photograph wildlife from ground level, for dramatic eye-level perspectives of animals. One guest at a time can benefit of this facility on each vehicle, so if you are interested in photographing from ground level throughout your safari without sharing the facility with other guests, please contact us to book a vehicle on exclusive use or a private safari. We will be happy to advise you on this and tailor your safari to take maximum advantage of this possibility.
