SAFARI ITINERARY

*Itineraries are planned with great care. For operational reasons, it may be necessary to change the sequence of activities or the intended routes taken, and although such cases are rare, The Photo Safari Company recommends that itineraries should be treated only as a guideline.

Photographic Opportunity: High

All our safaris provide a high level of photographic opportunities. Whether these are local culture, landscapes or wildlife, we guarantee that you will always have something new to photograph during your time with us.

Safari Pace: Medium-High

This safari is a medium to high pace schedule. It has been planned to ensure your return on investment is high, with maximising photographic opportunities at multiple times per day.
