Photography Trip to Tanzania
Experience the 8th wonder of the world, capture unforgettable wildlife, and catch a rare glimpse into the lives of the world’s most ancient tribes in this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Take your passion for photography to one of the most pristine wildernesses in the world. See wildlife in its natural habitat, including lions, rhinos, flamingoes, elephants, buffaloes, hippos, crocodiles, and wild dogs. Capture the majesty of such world-renowned places as Serengeti National Park and the world’s largest volcanic crater. You’ll even be among the rare few to have an opportunity to spend a day in a Maasai village—a privilege accorded to very few tourists, but made possible by our local connections.
With the help of our expert photography instructor, you’ll learn the skills you need to make the most of this experience, by capturing memories that will last forever.
Trip Dates: 12 – 23 September 2020.
Tanzania is home to the most stunning spectacle of wildlife on the planet. The beautiful national parks of Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are unique in the world for their vast expanses of unspoiled nature, which some two million large mammals call home.
In addition to the animals, Tanzania is also home to several tribes who have managed to keep their traditional way of life unchanged by modernity. You will have the rare opportunity to meet three such tribes, all with very different but equally fascinating ways of life. This is truly a unique opportunity to explore humanity’s roots and appreciate the diversity of the human experience.
Not only will you go home with images to be proud of, but you will also be able to use your new skills to improve and expand your photographic technique when you return home. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.
