9 Days Serengeti Wildebeest Safari

Lens on Tanzania: An 11-Day Photographic Adventure

Our African photo safari is led by a master naturalist safari guide and wildlife photographer, making it ideal for both novice and experienced photo enthusiasts. You’ll have the opportunity to photograph Tanzania’s best game parks, including the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire. Our safari is scheduled to coincide with the calving season in the southern Serengeti National Park, where the wildebeest and zebra migration spreads out across the plains, attracting an abundance of lions and cheetahs.

Expect to witness hundreds of wildebeest calves that are just a few hours old, with a good chance of witnessing a live birth. The presence of billowy clouds, occasional Spring-like showers amidst clear blue skies, bright sunlight, and vibrant green grass creates brilliant photographic opportunities.

Based in lodges, tented camps, and mobile luxury camps ideally situated for seasonal wildlife movements, we travel in retrofitted stretch 4×4 Land Cruisers that are fully equipped with window seats and an open hatch, ensuring unobstructed wildlife observation and photography. To minimize travel time and rugged overland travel, we conclude the safari with a flight from Serengeti back to Arusha

Tanzania Photographic Safari is an incredible way to experience the natural wonders of Africa up close. With an expert guide and comfortable accommodations, you’ll have the opportunity to see some of the world’s most incredible wildlife and landscapes, capturing unforgettable photos along the way. So, what are you waiting for? Book your trip today and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime!

Unforgettable experience at Mount Meru! We climbed Mount Meru in 4 days with Happyson and his crew from Seko Tours. We had an amazing experience, even though it was quite tough (especially because of the rainy season). We made it to the top thanks to this wonderful crew. They even shared their rain jacket and waterproof gloves with us. The chef prepared delicious meals, and the waiter took great care of us (including water to wash ourselves, tea, popcorn and hot water in a bottle to keep us warm during the night). Happyson and team spared no efforts and we had a lot of fun together. On the fourth day, right before the gate, we were surprised by seeing so many wild animals and the beautiful waterfall. The two giraffes at just a few meters away was amazing. Would definitely recommend!!

Safari with David from Seko tours David was our guide for our 2 day Tarangire and 1 day Ngorongoro safari. We were with a group of 4 friends and David was the best guide we could wish for. He had a lot of knowledge about the area, the animals, the culture, actually about everything. He could find every amimal we wanted to see including the difficult to spot cheeta, leopard and rhino. He did everything to get us the best spot to view and photograph the animals. When viewing, he told us a lot of intersting facts about the animals and the area they are in. Between the safari days David also was our driver to all locations in between, always on time and always with surprises, like beer or a great warm lunch. Thanks David you made our trip really worth it!!

Best Safari guides with a lot of knowledge, friendliness and fun We had a wonderful experience with our guides Shabani (mr walking encyclopedia) and John (mr juice). We went to Tarangiri, Serengeti and Ngorogoro in 2 cars with a family of 7. Both guides learned us a lot on the animals and really were motivated to give us the best time possible. They are friendly, happy and the best guides you could wish for. We saw all animals we wanted to see multiple times and had a lot of fun together.
