* NEW TOUR * NEW TOUR * NEW TOURNgorongoro Crater Signature Safari with Southern Serengeti and Ruaha extensionsThis 7 night (6 day) safari is booked on a pvt request basis only and the best months to do the safari are in April and May each year.
It has been dubbed the 8th natural wonder of the world
and there is quite simply no place like it on earth. The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
and it is also the largest inactive and intact volcano in the world. It is the undisputed Eden of Africa. So why has it taken me all these years to put together a photographic safari to this icon of Africa? Well, I have visited the crater extensively for the last six years, searching for a way to unlock its photographic potential and finally I have discovered the secret. I now share this secret with you so that you can get awesome and unique photographs.
The Ngorongoro Crater affectionately known as ‘the crater’ is nature’s own version of Jurassic Park. Surrounded by 360 degree and 600m (1968ft) high walls the crater is the largest intact and unfilled caldera in the world. At the bottom you find Africa’s most incredible ecosystem where some of the largest elephant bulls roam plus
and black rhinoceroses
, not to mention a smorgasbord of
plains game. It is an ancient, timeless place of wonder and unspeakable beauty. This is a bucket list item and something everyone who loves Africa just has to see at least once in their lifetime!
This photo safari is specifically designed with photographers in mind from every aspect: There are only three people per safari as it is vital that each photographer has their own row so that you can shoot out the left and the right. This safari has also been very carefully timed so that there are moody skies, incredible backgrounds and dramatic light. At this time of year there is almost no one else in the crater so you will have the place to yourself
. If you are a photographer who enjoys playing with light and lines and if you enjoy composing your shot and capturing frames that show an animal in its environment then don’t miss this safari. It is also a great safari to see predators in action, as the crater is jam-packed with predators and prey alike. The chance of seeing predator action is therefore high due to the confined space that the predators and prey live in. Expansive views of forests and green plains await.
