LOCATION

Tanzania is home to the most stunning spectacle of wildlife on the planet. The beautiful national parks of Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are unique in the world for their vast expanses of unspoiled nature, which some two million large mammals call home.

In addition to the animals, Tanzania is also home to several tribes who have managed to keep their traditional way of life unchanged by modernity. You will have the rare opportunity to meet three such tribes, all with very different but equally fascinating ways of life. Go hunting with a group of hunter-gatherers who are directly descended from the first humans on Earth; visit a village of nomadic skilled craftsmen who rely on their cattle herds to survive; and even have a goat barbecue prepared by very remote villagers in the heart of the Ngorongoro conservation area. This is truly a unique opportunity to explore humanity’s roots and appreciate the diversity of the human experience.

Not only will you go home with images to be proud of, but you will also be able to use your new skills to improve and expand your photographic technique when you return home. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.
