We offer you an extraordinary trip that you will never forget: both from the point of view of comfort and enjoyment (with superior accommodation) and from a professional and educational perspective.

When you think about it, becoming a wildlife photographer is a demanding endeavor that ultimately proves to be truly enriching: traveling with your equipment to those places where wildlife emerges in the most surprising ways.

With the assistance of local guides, I personally take charge of designing the entire route, from the resting places to the sites to visit. In fact, before launching any new destination, we conduct a reconnaissance trip in advance, meaning that we verify with our own eyes all the services we will later add. We never offer anything that we haven’t tested ourselves.

It’s worth noting that all trips include a learning component, an editing workshop. Throughout the journey, participants can observe my methodology in its entirety, and naturally, they have the opportunity to clarify any doubts that may arise at any time.

Safari in Tanzania

Our African adventure begins in the Ndutu area. During this season, the large herds of herbivores are scattered between the Serengeti area and the northern part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, in search of fresh pastures, followed by predators.

As it’s the wet season, occasional rainfall may occur. However, it’s the ideal time to visit this vast plain where most of the wildlife can be found. Additionally, during this time, you may witness hunting scenes, as the newborn offspring are vulnerable despite the protection of the herd.

The other major highlight of our trip is the Ngorongoro Crater, within which an immense concentration of wildlife coexists. The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s the largest intact volcanic caldera on the planet and is considered the eighth wonder of the world.

It’s a natural amphitheater surrounded by 600-meter-high walls, with a diameter of 20 kilometers, housing one of the world’s densest populations of large mammals. In a single day of safari, you can see an astonishing variety of animals, including the big predators.

Bears in Finland

Finland is known as the ‘land of a thousand lakes.’ Just for that reason alone, it deserves our attention, although its main attraction lies in the imposing wildlife that reigns over these lands of abundant nature, with the bear as the undisputed king. We will be able to observe the behavior of bears in their natural habitat, and even to see them swimming just a few meters from us. With a bit of luck, we may also photograph the fascinating wolves of the area.

We will focus our journey on the extraordinary region of Kuhmo, celebrated among the world’s top nature photographers, as it is here in its forests that Finnish biodiversity reaches its peak. The bears await your arrival.

Wildlife Iberian Tour

Iberian wildlife is as astonishing as it is delicate, given the constant threat hanging over its fabulous species. We are talking, of course, about the Iberian lynx, the primary emblem of this spectacular territory, whose mere sighting can only be described as truly magical. I assure you that the first time your gaze meets that of an Iberian lynx, you never forget it.

However, the Iberian lynx is not the sole protagonist of this fantastic Wildlife Iberian Tour. If luck is on our side, we will also have the opportunity to observe and photograph marvelous specimens of royal and imperial eagles, black and griffon vultures, marsh harriers and buzzards, red kites, and black kites.
