Wildlife Safari Photography

Back in Januar 2011 I visited Tanzania as a part of a journey "around the world". Tanzania is one of the best safari destinations you can choose in Africa. There's an incredible amount of wildlife in a wide variety of national parks and game reserves, some of which only receive a hand full of tourists every year.

I was lucky to spend 16 days on dusty roads trough Tanzania, from Dar Es Salaam in South East to the city Musoma in the North West of the country. During this trip I visited four national parks. Selous Game Reserve in the South, Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorogoro Conservation Area and Serengeti National Park in the North.
Wildlife photography is great fun but quite a challenge. You need to be prepared for anything in seconds, and changing lenses is always a risk with all the dust. During this trip I used a Canon 7D switching between a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0 and a Canon EF 70-200 f/4.0 lens. As a supplement I used a Nikon D3000 with a Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 lens.

These are some of the photographs I did as an assignment for Paka Adventures during this trip. The images is used at their webpage; pakaadventures.com and on different kinds of brochures, posters and books.

You can see a selection of the shots from the slideshow below or see all the photographs in this collection on Flickr.
