This trip to Africa is designed to prioritize spotting and shooting the big five. The big 5 are the African Lion, African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, African Leopard, and Rhinoceros. Come witness East Africa’s greatest densities of lions, leopards, and cheetahs. Herbivores and some of the most magnificent birds. Our focus would be the predators & hunts.

  • This tour is for anyone who wants an awesome wildlife experience.

  • Someone who just loves to sit back and enjoy the wild without the camera is also most welcome.

  • If you are a beginner in photography or have some experience with the camera, this is the ideal tour for you, as you would be capturing some great action shots, hunt sequences & portraits of the big cats.
