Tour Details

Travel in luxury to Africa alongside Award-winning professional photographer Aaron Baggenstos as your photographic instructor. Aaron has fine-tuned every element of this itinerary to combine luxury with the ultimate wildlife safari experience. We strategically scheduled these tour dates so that you will be in the heart of Kenya at the perfect time to experience the tail end of The Great Migration. 

As we travel throughout the top wildlife locations in Africa, our well-seasoned guides and spotters will maneuver us so we have the ability to capture frame-filling images of all the extravagant wildlife that inhabits the beautiful safari.

We will ride in style aboard private land cruisers custom outfitted to maximize your photographic experience. With just one photographer per row, you will be able to shoot out both sides of the vehicle at all times allowing you to capture any image from the best angle. Extra freight seats on board our charter flights have already been booked so you can carry your photography gear without having to worry about limiting weight restrictions and luggage fees, it also means your gear will be with you at all times for peace of mind.

Come join us on our African photo safari, grab your camera and your gear, and let Aaron show you the exotic wildlife, sweeping landscapes, and vibrant culture that is Ultimate Africa.

Aaron Photo tours

“This was a fabulous tour, offering unexpected and incredible viewing opportunities with drivers attuned to the lighting and positioning needs of photographers.  Aaron was very attentive to each individual photographer, offering suggestions tailored to that photographer’s knowledge level and needs.  I expected to photograph some big cats, but never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have such a large array of lions, cheetah and leopards in close proximity.  I will not hesitate to recommend this tour or Aaron’s Photo Tours in general to anyone interested in fantastic photo opportunities and focused and individualized suggestions for maximizing each photographic opportunity.  The vehicles were perfect for this type of safari with lots of room to maneuver without stepping on other photographers.  The small group approach was just right to provide camaraderie without sacrificing individualized attention.” 4 time Aaron’s Photo Tours Participant

“This was the trip of a lifetime on every level, starting with the first rate accommodations.  We were looked after from the moment we landed.  As a single woman traveling in Africa, this was supremely important for me. I felt incredibly safe with the guides, drivers, and spotters as well as in the beautiful camps and lodges where we stayed. The photography opportunities with wildlife were stunning, and this was my third trip to Africa! Breathtaking is the only word that suitably describes this tour.” 8 time Aaron’s Photo Tours Participant
