Tanzania - The Calving Season


Join me in Tanzania with Muench Workshops to photograph the calving season of the great migration, the big cats of the central Serengeti region, and amazing landscapes. I have been been leading safaris into the Serengeti of Tanzania since 2007 and know the country like the back of my hand. You will be flown straight into the heart of the safari country, where we have amazing camps set up that put us right in the thick of the action!

This safari is all about photography and you can expect lots of it. There will be photographic instruction and critiques along the way to make sure your safari is a success. Plan for long days as we work hard to capture those iconic and unique images that are associated with this part of the Great Migration.

Our first location will be a tented camp in the Central Serengeti, an area that Randy often refers to as “Cat Alley.” Here our emphasis will be on lions, leopards, and cheetahs. Exploring the numerous rocky outcroppings called kopjes, you will get to capture the true endless plains of the Serengeti and the unlimited photography that is all around you. We will be able to follow the game, wherever they take us.

Our second camp will be in the Ndutu area, within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This time of the year, the Ndutu area is full of massive herds of wildebeest and zebra, both giving birth to their young. Antelope will also be in the midst of calving, so predators will be everywhere. All of this activity makes for some remarkable photographic opportunities. If you have not seen the great migration during calving season, it is a sight to be seen and certainly one that will be remembered for years to come.

Our third and final camp will be on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, which is one of the ‘seven wonders of the world.’ Located just above 7,000 feet in elevation, we will be positioned to descend into the crater at first light. The crater has its own unique ecosystem, with prides of lion, herds of elephant, and the largest population of rhinos in Tanzania. All of these features combine to make this location unique, fascinating, and full of non-stop photography.
