Our wildlife photography holidays are aimed at amateur photographers keen to improve their skills.

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.” - Paul Stanbury

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.


He (Andy Skillen) made it very clear from the outset that he was there for us and to help us all get good sightings and good photographs. He was so very generous with his time, knowledge and expertise and this was clearly the best trip I have ever had with a professional photographer, as he clearly is. As a group we all got along very well and had some laughs along the way. The guides were clearly very experienced and always positioned the vehicle so we all got good sightings, and this of course does make a difference on a holiday such as this. The lodges were very good in all respects. The staff so friendly and helpful, food excellent and accommodation very good. I would not hesitate to book another photography trip particularly if Andy Skillen is leading the group.
