You will enjoy the most iconic wildlife on planet earth with fewer vehicles around. Our timing also equals closer encounters and ultimately better photography.

“This was a fabulous tour, offering unexpected and incredible viewing opportunities with drivers attuned to the lighting and positioning needs of photographers. Aaron was very attentive to each individual photographer, offering suggestions tailored to that photographer’s knowledge level and needs. I expected to photograph some big cats, but never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have such a large array of lions, cheetah and leopards in close proximity. I will not hesitate to recommend this tour or Aaron\’s photo tours in general to anyone interested in fantastic photo opportunities and focused and individualized suggestions for maximizing each photographic opportunity. The vehicles were perfect for this type of safari with lots of room to maneuver without stepping on other photographers. The small group approach was just right to provide camaraderie without sacrificing individualized attention.”

“This was the trip of a lifetime on every level….starting with the first rate accommodations. We were looked after from the moment we landed. As a single woman traveling in Africa, this was supremely important for me. I felt incredibly safe with the guides/drivers/spotters as well as in the beautiful camps where we stayed in the bush. The photography opportunities with wildlife were stunning…and this was my third trip to Africa! Breathtaking is the only word that suitably describes this tour.”
