Wildlife Photgraphy Holidays
For most of us it is an almost automatic response to reach for the camera when presented with the opportunity to record such unforgettable moments as close-up views of a Tiger or breaching whale in the wild. Naturetrek’s photography tours will suit keen wildlife photographers wanting a holiday on which wildlife photography is the primary rather than an incidental purpose.
Our photography specialist recommends..
“Most people come to India hoping to take the best shots they can of Tigers, but the birds and other wildlife in Bandhavgarh National Park offer some wonderful photographic opportunities too. Our Finland Bears trip is excellent for providing a chance to get very close shots of Bears in all different light conditions.” - Bret Charman
Naturetrek wildlife photography tours
The majority of participants on Naturetrek holidays take cameras with them. On many tours there may be several very keen photographers who would list photography as their primary purpose in travelling. In recognition of this, Naturetrek now offers two dedicated wildlife photography holidays.
Most people take a camera on holiday and taking photographs is an integral part of most holidays, whether it involves simple snaps of scenery and people, or more serious compositions using the latest state-of-the-art equipment.
Naturetrek’s wildlife photography tours offer:
- Expert help from professional wildlife photographers on composition, equipment & more
- Focus on key species such as Tigers, bears, elephants, penguins
- Extended time in hotspots to allow a focus on target species
- Travel to picturesque regions
- Like-minded travelling companions
Our dedicated wildlife photography tours:
We offer two specialist wildlife photography holidays:
- India’s Wildlife – a photography tour
- Brown Bears in Finland
Will I get help with photography on non-specialist tours?
In addition to the two dedicated photography tours, many of our tour leaders are highly proficient photographers and so can offer advice on other, non-specialist holidays. Details of individual tour leaders and whether they can offer advice can be found by asking the tour manager before booking a particular tour, or by reading the tour leader’s biography on this website.
WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Photography HOLIDAYS
Both naturalists and tour leader were invariably friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The lodges were in general excellent and very welcoming. I particularly remember the Kulala Desert Lodge for its wonderful situation. But top of the list, I think, must be the Damaraland Lodge, which produced a splendid cooked lunch in the middle of the wilderness when we were expecting a packed sandwiches. Then a parting breakfast at the top of the hill in similar fashion - very surprising and imaginative! And wonderful scenery! Oh and there was dinner under the stars to start with.
Thank you for organising a wonderful trip through Namibia and for the extension to Okonjima, which was marvellous. A vote of thanks should also go to your agents and to the trip leader (Rob Mileto). I hope to travel with you again soon.
This was a well paced trip that delivered the goods. The two nights in the hide were excellent with plenty of bears. Accommodation and food at the lodge was very good.
