|General informations about safaris for photographers|
The key to a successful photographic safari is a reliable, well maintained vehicle and an experienced and knowledgeable guide , as well as a flexible team, who are able to make quick on the spot decisions. It goes without saying that comprehensive advice during the planning stage is vital in order to achieve the "perfect safari experience."
Our vehicles are equipped with large pop-up roof hatches, to allow an unobtrusive view /photography from the top as well as from the side windows.
We have a large selection of important aids such as bean bags, tripods for photographic safaris, camera doors, special window and roof clamps for film crews and their respective cameras. As all our vehicles are maintained within our in-house workshop, we have the added advantage of being able to modify any vehicle to your specific requirements quickly and efficiently. (e.g. remove seats to allow better access)
All our vehicles are fitted with a high frequency radio, which enables contact with our head office in Nairobi but at the same time also with other driver/guides to check / share information on wildlife sightings. In addition, each guide has his own mobile phone which allows easy communication within most parks / game reserves.
Our driver/guides have had a great deal of experience with photographers and film teams from all over the world and understand what is necessary to ensure a successful trip. (e.g. we offer full day game drives with packed meals such as breakfast and lunch, your guide understands how to position his vehicle in order to provide the best light, very early departures from lodges are second nature to your photographic guide)
If you are feeling adventurous and would like to explore the country at your own pace, then why not hire one of our vehicles on self- drive basis.
At Sunworld, we will gladly help you plan and execute an itinerary tailor-made to your wishes with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail.
