Safaris, Foreign Workshops and Tours

    Trips / tour details 
  Please add me to a waiting list    
 
I arrange a number of safaris and trips abroad designed specifically for the enthusiastic photographers with a real interest in photographing wildlife. I don't run this operation on a truly commercial basis so don't offer many holiday trips at any one time but those I do offer have been very carefully selected to provide truly exciting and rewarding opportunities.
 
My aim on all these trips is quite simple, to help you master many of the field techniques required of a competent wildlife photographer and to come away having improved your technique, your knowledge of the subjects and with some memorable images.
 
Aswell as being an experienced wildlife photographer and naturalist I am a qualified teacher and tutor able to support everyone from the novice photographer to those who are considerably more experienced. I limit the numbers on all my trips so that I can personally assist and support you and be on hand to help you improve and refine your photographic skills understanding better digital photography techniques and how to achieve creative images.

COVID 19 Update - 2 January 2021
 
Given the ongoing Covid situation some months ago I decided to cancel my Spring 2021 Africa safaris and of course those that should have run in Autumn 2020. I do however feel that things will have changed by autumn 2021 and certainly by spring 2022 and thus have scheduled new dates for the cancelled safaris.
 
Thankfully all those already booked for Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021 have elected to postpone their bookings and the additional good news is that the camps I use have agreed to hold their prices at the previous prices for all my new departures.
 
I already hold a waiting list for Spring 2022 so, together with those who have postponed, these safaris are already nearly full. Given the interest and the advantageous prices I have therefore decided to schedule some additional trips, prior to original dates, for those who want to take advantage of the once off special pricing.
 
The details of all of these together with the rescheduled special trip to see the rare wild dogs in Mana Pools Zimbabwe in September are listed below. If you’re interested please contact me either through the contact me directly by email bob@naturesphotos.co.uk or given the interest I suspect there will be trips directly by telephone on (01536) 373977.
 
It will be great to have something good to look forward to after all this lockdown period. If you would like to know more or have any questions at all please do contact me on the contact details above.
 
The following are publically bookable dates I also run private safaris and safaris for Camera Clubs and other groups at special rate by agreement - please contact me if this interests you.
