Small groups are our hallmark, as they ensure better access and a quieter context for intimate wildlife encounters. And no groups are smaller than our Photo Pro Expeditions. We divide up further on safari drives, splitting up into multiple vehicles with no more than three guests each (one guest per row), to assure plenty of space for your gear, angling for shots, and personalized attention from our guides. Traveling in a small group, we can maintain flexibility to adapt to changing conditions in order to maximize photography opportunities.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
In Kenya, we use custom-built, durable 4x4 Toyota Land Cruisers or Land Rovers, with an entire row for each guest. On safari, we use open-sided vehicles with a canvas roof, offering an open field of view and protection from the elements. Built to withstand the rigors of rough roads, they provide a comfortable ride and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. Reinforced suspension systems and spacious interiors enhance the experience. Amenities include bean bags for camera stability and traditional Maasai shuka blankets for added warmth on cool morning and evening drives.
In Tanzania, our safari vehicles are specially adapted, reinforced, roof-hatch Land Cruisers that seat three travelers each in their own row. Custom-installed bucket seats have superior-quality spring cushions and adjustable lumbar support for incomparable comfort. Since each row has its own roof
Built to withstand the rigors of rough roads, our safari vehicles provide a comfortable ride and excellent photography access. Refrigerators/ice boxes keep drinks cool, and an onboard library of bird and mammal books provides insight into species and natural history on the spot.

To participate in this trip, you must be able to walk unassisted at a steady pace for at least one mile over uneven terrain, climb steps such that you can get into and out of our raised safari vehicles that are elevated approximately 30 inches above the ground, and be able to tolerate daily outdoor excursions that may last 4-5 hours or even a full day at a time, sometimes in hot, windy and/or dusty conditions. Wildlife drives pose a particular type of physical demand on the body, as they require long hours of sitting and take place over terrain that is often very rough and bumpy, including dirt roads with many ruts and potholes. Travelers with back or neck problems, or other health issues that could be exacerbated by such conditions, should take this into consideration. While any walking safaris are considered optional, travelers must be able to walk unassisted to and from the vehicle to our camp accommodations, sometimes walking over uneven ground or on boardwalks. Days spent on safari are often long, as mornings typically start before daybreak and evening meals are served after sundown. Safari accommodations and vehicles are not climate-controlled and, depending on the season, temperatures can range from quite cold to extremely hot, so it is critical that travelers come prepared.
