Our Kenya photo safaris in 2011 were very successful, and we arrange a new safari to Kenya 23 – 30 November. For this safari we depart a little later than the peak tourist season so we’ll get more rest and more opportunities to photograph what we want. We will also extend the safari with two nights [...]

Galapagos #2
12:37 , June 28, 2011

Turtles and Sea lions I really wanted to experience the sea turtles and land tortoises on Galapagos in May. There's no guarantee that these large tortoises will be seen out in the wild, but on the largest island, Isaballa, there's a very good chance of spotting some. I saw three wild giant turtles on the [...]

This is my first trip report from a 11 day boat expedition to the Galapagos archipelago. This was a test trip to check for the possibility of arranging similar trips for photographers. The expedition I was on was not a specialized trip for photographers, so I missed most of the best lighting conditions. But, as [...]

Kanha National Park is quite different than Bandhavgarh. With more open grassland and larger trees, it's much easier to observe and photograph animals and birds. In Kanha, when you find something interesting to photograph you will often get better light conditions than in Banhavgarh, especially in the morning. The advantages are shorter routes with fewer [...]

On the first day, one group stayed with Ole Martin on board [...]
