In 2020, we have current confirmed three safari trips, each unique and each worthy of consideration. In addition to these, we are working on additional destinations to be announced later.

  • May 2020 –Okavango/Chobe Experience: Savute & Chobe Photo Tour of Botswana – Khwai, Savute & Chobe in Botswana arguably offers the best overall game viewing and wildlife photography experience Botswana has to offer. This 9-day/8-night safari concentrates on the prime wildlife areas making sure we cover the most sought-after photographic areas. We have worked extensively in Botswana for a number of years and will put you in the front row seat of photography excellence.

  • May 2020 – Zimanga, South Africa – This is a true photographers paradise. Imagine an entire game reserve specifically designed to create the best photo opportunities in the world. Now Image having the entire reserve to just our group, giving us the freedom to shoot at any time night or day. An amazing mix of photo hides and vehicle-based photo workshops await you. You may not have heard of Zimanga, but if you follow the winners of contests like the Smithsonian’s Winland Rice Awards, the British Natural History Museum Wildlife Photographer of the Year, the Sony Photo Awards or the Sienna International Photo Awards, then you have probably seen photos taken at this new and exciting location.

  • May 22-30, 2020 – Timbavati – May is always a good time of yearto visit the Greater Kruger and Timbavati is one of our favorite private reserves. It’s a great time because it’s the dry season, the weather is late Fall in the southern hemispere which means pleasant temperature during the day between 75-80° F with low humidity. The game viewing is great because many of the trees have lost a few leaves and many of the remaining leaves have a beautiful green to gold tone. Timbavati is great for all animals, but is exceptional for leopard and lion sightings. On this trip, we will be staying in two separate lodges. That gives you an nice mix of varied terrain and wildlife. You can’t go wrong picking this safati.

  • November 2020 – Timbavati, South Africa – We have picked November because this is when the impala and other antelope give birth. This allows lots of photos of babies, which is always a treat. As one can imagine, with small, vulnerable animals also comes heightened predation so we can also expect plenty of big cat action. We have chosen this lodge to at this reserve to optimize this experience for a small, select group of photographers.

  • August 28, 2020 – Great Wildebeest Migration in the Masai Mara – The Great Migration in Kenya’s Masai Mara really needs no further introduction but certainly needs to be seen at least once in the lifetime of every photographer and wildlife enthusiast. ONce again we have secured a great lodge during the peak of the migration.
  • Shampole Wilderness – September 5, 2020 – This is an extension for our Mara Great Migration Trip. It’s really an amazing location. The lodge is beautiful with furniture from local trees and the photo opportunities amazing. We will shoot flamingos over soda lakes and zebras, giraffe and gazelles on the dusty plains. Also included is a real insiders view of a Maasai settlement with a chance to shoot the warrior tribesmen bringing home the cattle through clouds a beautifully photographic dust.

    • Amboseli National Park – September, 2020 – A worth extension to your trip to the Masai Mara is a visit to Amboseli. The Great Tusker elephants of the park are famed for having the largest tusks in the world. Add a backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro and you have a photo you will not forget.


    • Of course, we are always open to other suggestions, so if you have an African destination you would like us to look into, feel free to contact us.
