In collaboration with Tambula Safaris I lead a limited number photo safaris to Uganda. Our goal is to enable you to capture intimate portraits of the iconic wildlife for which Africa is renowned, in their natural environments, and to improve your photography skills.
Uganda is unique as a wildlife destination because it is the only country in the world in which you can see the classic Big Five – lions, leopards, rhinos, buffalos and elephants – as well as wild chimpanzees and gorillas. In Uganda you can track rhinos, gorillas and chimps on foot and spend time photographing them close-up in their natural environments.
There is nothing quite like the experience of observing gorillas and rhinos feeding peacefully a few meters away, or of being caught in the midst of a band of wild chimps rushing through the forest screaming and drumming on the buttresses of large trees, whether you are a photographer or not. The experience is made all the more poignant by the knowledge that many of these animals are under threat due to poaching, habitat loss and conflict with local communities. This is particularly true for the rhinos, mountain gorillas and chimpanzees.
