Your adventure of a lifetime starts here: The Ultimate Africa Photo Safari

Consider this tour a Wildlife Photography Masterclass! Spend your days in the most celebrated wildlife sanctuaries on Earth and your evenings in the classroom with Richard Bernabe.

Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Serengeti National Park are two of the world’s premier wildlife photography destinations. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, rhinoceros, hippos, and so much more await you and your camera in this one-in-a-lifetime Africa photo safari with world-renowned wildlife photographer, Richard Bernabe. In addition to arguably the best wildlife photography destinations on the planet, what makes this the “Ultimate Africa Wildlife Safari” is the personal instruction and evening classroom sessions with Richard held every night in the lodge meeting rooms. Image critiques, compositional workshops, and learning how to get the most of your equipment are just some of the topics to be addressed each evening.

An optional gorilla trekking extension is also available in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest of Uganda, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site. The cost of the flight from Arusha to Kigali, Rwanda (we will drive from Kigali to the Chameleon Hill Lodge in Bwindi, Uganda) is included in the price of the trip extension.
