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
The three wilderness safari camps were outstanding. Damaraland Camp was one of the best places we have ever stayed at. The guides/drivers, Festus and Jeremia were outstanding in their general knowledge of wildlife, their country and history. Some of the best guides we have travelled with.
Time spent at Martinselkonen Wilds Centre was excellent. The viewing of bears and other wildlife was very good and the tour guides friendly and knowledgeable.
It was much appreciated that Sergio managed to arrange village visits, including a small and interesting museum, and Hecho. I found his explanations and tuition well-structured and easy to follow; he was always helpful and went out of his way to ensure that we saw wonderful things and places to photograph.
