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
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. 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. Africa
and its unpredictable wildlife make each day a new adventure that never
ceases to amaze.
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 2-3 prides of lions and several
cheetahs daily, 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 the
Ngorongoro Conservation Area where we can go ‘off road’ to view the large
concentrations of wildlife up close and personal
The 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 25% of the total area of the country that has been
reserved for wildlife. 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.
the selected dates do not work for you, our experience with the Serengeti is
so extensive that we would love to set up a
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.
