Join Alan in Africa!

Join Alan for an incredible wildlife photography safari in Africa’s most stunning destinations.

Unlike a normal ‘tourist’ safari, these safaris are designed to meet the needs of photographers with an emphasis on ethics and improving your photographic and fieldcraft knowledge in stunning wildlife habitats.

We base our photography safaris in private reserves and conservancies with experienced and qualified guides and trackers where we can benefit from responsible off-roading, high density and diverse wildlife but low tourist numbers. Bespoke private individual and group safaris also available!

We were blessed to see so much wildlife, every game  drive had an incredoble experience. The entire experience, helpful staff, incredible guides and Alan, such good service and the abundance of wildlife was absolutely priceless.

Bianca Lyness, (with Penda Photo Tours)

Alan & Kaleel have been absolutely amazing. Terrific help. This is my first safari and it won’t be my last…

Phil O'Brien, (with African Photography Safaris)

In 50 years of travelling I have never been as happy as I was for that week. Everything was perfect. Alan was endlessly patient and helpful with his advice…

Alan Meek, (with Penda Photo Tours)
It’s fair to say that every expectation has been exceeded…
Chris Stead, (with African Photography Safaris)

Thank you for hosting such a great trip, I have so many lovely memories…

Linda Gould, (with African Photography Safaris)

The whole experience of this trip has surpassed my expectations…

Paul Kidd, (with African Photography Safaris)

The best of any guides I’ve ever come across before…

Richard Drake, (with African Photography Safaris)
The whole trip has felt really well organised. I felt re-assured by all of the information Alan & Kaleel sent in advance…
Rachel Stead, (with African Photography Safaris)
They relate to me as a person, not as a customer. They look after my wellbeing which is why I’m with them for the third time…
Don Vawter, (with African Photography Safaris)
We probably saw more species in the first hour than most people will be privileged to see in their life…
