Announcing the Great Migration Photo Safari


Join me in Africa for the wildlife photography adventure of a lifetime from March 21st to 31st 2019.

At the heart of the great wildebeest migration in Tanzania offers one of the great wildlife spectacles on earth.

This safari will take us to two of the best areas for wildlife watching and photography in the world, the southern Serengeti plains and the Ngorongoro crater, at the time when over one million Wildebeests gather here to give birth to their calves.

Here the short grass plains come to life during the wet season and the wildebeests return from the north after their search for pastures during the dry season. This grass is particularly rich in salts and minerals, providing the ideal conditions for the wildebeests to give birth. The predators of course will take advantage of this proliferation of young animals trotting across the plains next to their mothers. We will divide our time between the Ngorongoro, a 600 meters deep crater which hosts an impressive concentration of animals and predators, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with Ndutu and the Southern Serengeti plains in the Serengeti National Park where we will have chances for iconic photographs of lions on the Kopjes and hopefully for interesting hunting images.

This safari is run in conjunction with Au Tigre Vanill√©, a Swiss-based tour operator with many years' experience. The group will be guided by me with supporting guides. I will share my time equally between the two vehicles. Throughout the safari I will also share my knowledge on the wildlife and parks of Tanzania.
