Tanzania Photography Safaris | 13 Days

Wildlife Photography & Mara River Crossing Safari the most exciting, heart-pounding safari in Africa, it is arguably the greatest wildlife photography experience in the natural. Our vehicles are fully extended Land Cruisers specially designed to give photographers the most flexibility and maximum space. The roof has a special leather roll back top. Experienced Safari Guides Our driver guides are all silver rated and have thousands of hours of experience throughout the entire Northern Tanzania.

If you use a full-frame DSLR or mirrorless camera you will need to cover focal lengths from 200-600mm or more for most wildlife situations in Tanzania. If you use a crop-sensor camera, adjust the focal lengths accordingly. You will also find a wide angle lens good for landscape photography and a short focal length telephoto good for some wildlife situations (for example, very close elephants and other mammals, or groups of animals). There will be only limited opportunities to use a macro lens. If you bring a good quality bridge camera it will be best if it has an optical zoom of 18-20x or more, combined with a reasonable wide-angle at the other end of the zoom range.

Be sure to bring plenty of spare battery power. Dust is ever-present in northern Tanzania, so cleaning equipment is important. A beanbag can be very useful here for wildlife photography from the vehicle.
