Jaguars and the Wildlife of the Pantanal
(.........) August 27 - September 7, 2009
This trip booked full hours after being offered. We intend to do this trip again in 2010. Although there is no brochure at this time, the Trip Report will give you most of the details.
In August, 2008 I'll be doing a scouting trip to the world's largest wetlands, Brazil's Pantanal. On my scouting trip I'll be devoting most of my time in searching for jaguars, the New World's largest, and the world's third largest, cat, and from this experience I'll set up the trip to maximize our chances for photographing wild jaguars while still photographing the Pantanal's other incredibly diverse wildlife. Other species we can expect include giant otters, jabiru storks at the nest, hyacinth macaws, other parrot species, a variety of song, perch, and water/wading birds, birds of prey, kingfishers - the best location in the world, pootoos, caimens, anacondas, and other reptiles, amphibians, and insects. I expect this to be one of our most exciting destinations in 2009, so if you're interested, get on to our first-contact list ASAP.
Kenya PHOTO SAFARI - Samburu, Nakuru, and the Masai
(.........) October 3-17, 2009 and (.........) October 17-31, 2009
These are among our most popular, and difficult to get into, tours. Contact our office for final dates.
We'll be visiting the three best game-viewing and photography destinations in Kenya, and probably in all of Africa. Each locale is unique, with the endemic species of semi-arid Samburu -- gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, beisa oryx, Gunther's dik-dik, and of course great elephants and a wonderful chance of leopard. Samburu's bird photography is extraordinary, too. Lake Nakuru is famous for its flamingos -- sometimes numbering in the millions, but it also has a candy-store variety of mammals, including great white rhino, Rothschild's giraffes, and baboons, vervet monkeys, leopards, various antelopes, and many species of birds. The crown jewel is the Masai Mara, and our tours are virtually the only photography tours that visit three distinct locations within this incredibly rich park. By staying at three different camps -- in the south, the west, and finally the east, we'll maximize our game-viewing with minimum driving, concentrating on the rich game of the region. Our subjects -- the best! Including wonderful cheetah opportunities, great lion prides, hyenas, jackals, leopards, all the plains game, crocs, hippos, elephants, and many species of birds, both song and birds-of-prey. Our trips are limited to 3 photographers per vehicle! Price is from Nairobi, and includes all food, lodging, fees, and ground transportation.
