African Wildlife Photo Tours with Max Waugh

Exploring some of Africa's best destinations for wildlife photography

NEW TOUR! Join wildlife photographer Max Waugh on a Tanzania adventure in February, 2019! We'll visit some of the world's best areas for wildlife photography during the wildebeest calving season, a peak time for predator activity!

Lions in Ngorongoro Crater

This new photo safari will allow us to enjoy some of the highlights of Tanzania's famed northern safari circuit, including the famed Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. We'll also have off-roading privileges in the Ndutu Conservation Area, and even a walking safari in Arusha National Park. Witness the spectacle that is the culmination of the annual wildebeest migration, and millions of antelope drop their calves on the green plains of the Serengeti. This birthing ritual brings out the predators, and we'll expect to see plenty of big cats, including lions, leopards and cheetahs.

Of course, being Africa, we want to photograph more than just the big cats, and we'll be treated to some amazing biodiversity. Elephants, giraffes, rhinos (including the possibility of seeing the critically endangered black rhino) and other large mammals will be on our wish list. Being the wet season, we can expect heightened bird activity. From eagles and owls to more colorful migrating birds, it should be a great time for bird photography to complement all of the mammals we'll see.

About the Tanzania Photo Tour

black rhino
We may see the endangered black rhino in Tanzania.
Think of this tour as an African photo adventure rather than a hard-core photography workshop. We emphasize the fun of exploration and discovery that comes with photographing the wildlife of this incredible place. This is an ideal tour for first-time African travelers or more experienced travelers wanting to experience the magic of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. It's also a great tour for non-photographers who are simply interested in viewing wildlife. Our 2014 and 2016 "non-photographers" loved their safari experiences! We'll have plenty of opportunities to see a great variety of species, large and small.

Tanzania was Max's first safari destination in Africa, and he is excited to be able to share the experience with his clients. He'll be there to offer tips and advice for shooting in various lighting situations. We don't emphasize classroom work or tutorials, but there will be plenty of opportunities for getting hands-on instruction and feedback in the field.
