Live your own wildlife special in person! Experience the amazing natural wonders of the Serengeti and all of its intimate wildlife viewing opportunities with a special difference. . . you get to do it with international travel and wildlife photographer William Cowger.  Having been to the Serengeti multiple times each year, Mr. Cowger knows where and when to go in this vast wilderness to maximize the experience for photographers and observers alike.  Witness the daily drama of “survival of the fittest” in an ecosystem that supports millions of mammals and countless birds, much as it did 20,000 years ago. Suitable for all levels of photographic experience (or just plain observation), the photo workshops invite questions and encourage trying different techniques and experimentation with the light we are dealt each day. Our naturalist guides have been trained for years to automatically position us for the best light for photography and observation.

Observers and photographers alike get a concentrated education on wildlife management and animal behaviors from our accompanying naturalist guides whose incredible eyes and wealth of knowledge significantly enrich the experience in Tanzania.  We travel in 4WD vehicles with 4 rows of seats, a roof that pops up for shade, and a full 360 degree view.  This assures a row for each person and plenty of space for photography gear. We spend each night in luxury safari lodges and camps that provide an opportunity to charge batteries, clean gear, relax and enjoy our beautiful surroundings.  Tanzania and its plentiful but unpredictable wildlife make each day a new adventure that never ceases to amaze.

The Serengeti migration is not seasonal, but rather, it happens 12 months of the year.  All trips are oriented to getting right in the middle of the amazing migration, and the temperature is basically the same year round (highs 78-82 F).  On all trips it is normal to see 50-100 large cats (lions, cheetahs, and leopards), hundreds of elephants, giraffe and hippos, the occasional rhino, tens of thousands of antelope, wildebeest and zebras, and many of the 500 species of birds which include 9 regularly observed species of raptors.  During both our February and May trips, we spend 3 days in Tanzania's Ngorongoro Conservation Area where we can go ‘off road’ to view the large concentrations of wildlife up close and personal

Your photo safari will also help the poor yet safe and peaceful nation of Tanzania.  Responsible tourism is crucial to their economic development and to support the 35% of the total area of the country that has been reserved for wildlife and nature.  Unlike many African nations, Tanzania has never had problems with tribal warfare, revolts, nor attacks against tourists.  Our African partners are a Tanzanian family run business that has been guiding safaris for 60 years.

If the selected dates do not work for you, our experience with the Serengeti is so extensive that we would love to set up a custom safari for you that will meet ALL your expectations.  Our relationship with our Tanzanian partners assures us that your trip will be a lifetime highlight. Special rates are available for groups of 6 or more.
