A photographic safari in Tanzania must be one of the most photographer-friendly destinations on the planet. From snow-capped mountain peaks to ‘Big Five’ safaris and dreamy tropical islands, Tanzania is basking in its newfound status as a seriously hot photographic travel destination.
From the Serengeti plains and steep-sided Ngorongoro Crater to the flamingos of Lake Manyara and giant tuskers of Tarangire to idyllic Zanzibar and traditional Pemba to the wild landscapes of Ruaha, Katavi, and Stiegler’s Gorge in the Selous, the list of iconic Tanzanian photographic destinations is almost endless. Mahale Mountains with its habituated chimpanzees and Lake Tanganyika location is another photographic unique destination, while having mountains and volcanoes—from the world-renowned Kilimanjaro to the restless Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano—ensures that photographers are salivating at the mere thought of a visit.
If you can afford it, then it is definitely worth booking a private vehicle – for you (and your fellow photographers) – to ensure that there is no conflict of interest and that you are the master of your own photographic destiny. Things are considerably easier outside of the parks and game reserves, where dangerous wildlife and safety are less of an issue, allowing one to explore and photograph on foot and at their own pace.
Good photos practically take themselves in Tanzania. But, of course, there is art and skill in great photography. A world-renowned nature photographer will lead this trip, helping you hone your craft and capture the best shots. Book your photographic safari in Tanzania with us today
