Tour Details

Are you a nature photographer ready to take your skills and portfolio to the next level? Join us on our Tanzania Photography Tour in February and experience one of the most incredible wildlife photography destinations in the world. Our safari is designed specifically for photographers of all skill levels who are looking to improve their craft and capture stunning images of the wild.

What sets our safari apart from others is the range of diverse regions we’ll visit, our custom outfitted vehicles and experienced photographic guides that will provide expert instruction and get you to the right place at the right time consistently throughout the tour. In Tarangire National Park, you’ll have the chance to photograph large elephant herds and baobab trees in a one-of-a-kind setting. Ndutu offers the opportunity to capture the breathtaking great migration of wildebeest, zebras and Thomson’s gazelles during the calving season, as well as an assortment of incredible predators that follow them. And in Central Serengeti, you’ll find some of the largest populations of big cats on earth including lions, cheetahs, leopards and even caracal.  

Throughout the trip, we’ll be staying in luxury safari camps that provide comfortable accommodations, great food and are situated at the best wildlife rich photography areas. Our camps are located in the heart of the wilderness, allowing us to take advantage of the best light early morning and evening light for photography. You will also receive instruction and mentoring from Aaron, who will help you improve your skills and capture stunning images.

Other highlights of the tour include visiting less-known wildlife meccas where you’ll make world-class images while avoiding crowds, and extra space on our flights so you can carry your photography gear without having to worry about weight restrictions. Our trips are custom designed for nature photography enthusiasts of all levels, and we focus on providing a personalized experience with small groups, private custom outfitted land cruisers, and access to the best local guides in the industry which can make the difference of you coming home with the images you want or an excuse about why you flew all the way to Africa and missed the shots of your dreams. 

With Aaron’s knowledge and guidance, you will be able to take your photography to new heights and return home with a stunning collection of images. Join us on this unique and unforgettable safari to capture stunning images and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Testimonials

Aaron Photo tours

“…what an unbelievable trip. Our minds and hearts are filled with memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. This was Chip’s first photo workshop – what a way to begin. Under the guidance of Aaron Baggenstos he was able to capture some moments, and learn a lot about photography and understand why I am so passionate about photography and wildlife. We woke up every morning to shoot first morning light and saw every sunset to shoot the evening golden hour. We saw cheetahs, lions, eagles, wildebeests, leopards, and so much more. We saw so much, learned so many stories and experienced a culture that has changed our hearts.” 4 time Aaron’s Photo Tours Participant
