We are ready to go with our photo safari schedule for the coming year. Set aside dates in October 2010 or February 2011 for the best photo safaris available. Seven days tracking the amazing and diverse wildlife of the Serengeti Plains, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks. We’ll also visit Olduvai Gorge and visit with the Maasai who live around Ngorongoro.
The safari starts with a flight from Arusha, across the Great Rift Valley and Crater Highlands to the Serengeti. We’ll spend the next 7 days making our way back to Arusha by following the chain of parks and wilderness areas. It will truly be a memorable experience with photo opportunities around every bend.
We’ve teamed up with Allan Phillemon. Allan is a Tanzanian who is best known for guiding the IMAX and National Geographic film crews up and safely back down Mt. Kilimanjaro to make the IMAX film Kilimanjaro: To the Roof of Africa. He will outfit us in his safari Land Cruisers with his best guides and we will be staying at both luxury tented camps close to the wildlife and lodges with the best views in East Africa.
Oh yeah – you’ll want to know about the price. Allan has priced this really well for us on a sliding scale based on the number of people. All transportation, accommodation and meals and a few extras (like wine on every dinner table) are included – basically everything except personal spending and your flight to Arusha (Kilimanjaro International Airport – JRO – KLM flies daily from Amsterdam). By the way, we are using a minimum of two trucks to give everyone the elbow room they need for great photography. The fewest people we’ll go with is 4.
With 4 people split between two trucks, the price is US$ 6695 per person. If there are 5 or 6 people, the price drops to US$ 5695. With 7 or 8 people (which is the maximum) the price drops again to US$4995. Why the big gap in price? Having more people reduces the cost per person so we prefer to pass the savings on to you. I invite you to have a look at other safaris offered around the web. We are not a discount safari, nor are we scrimping on accommodation, meals, trucks or location. That being said, you’ll find these prices as good if not better than most other Tanzanian safaris.
For me, there is no better place in this world than being on safari in East Africa. It is absolutely exhilarating! I hope you’ll be able to join me. Have a look at the site and drop me an email if you have any questions.
Travelling to Africa is like going back in time…
Wildlife like you’ve never seen before.
Wide open spaces that seem to go on forever.
Photo ops around every bend in the road.
It’s the Africa you’ve dreamed of…
