For this blog for March 2012 a photograph from last years trip to the Northern Serengeti for the yearly return and crossings by the Wildebeests.
This because of the planning and organising for a upcoming trip.
Photo trip to the Great Migration,
A photographic trip through the Northern part of Tanzania with as highlight the famous Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Natron. Together with André you will photograph wildlife and nature in this part of Eastern Africa. Everything on this trip is about photography. No more than three persons per vehicle at a 7 seated car, early mornings and late afternoons. Between those game-drives there will be time to rest or review the photographs and photographing techniques.
Minimal 6 and maximum of 10 people.
The program will be on our site soon. If you want already some info ask here.
This is the kind of photographs that we are hoping for on this trip. We waited patiently in the bushes for this herd. In the morning we heard on the radio that one of the biggest herds seen this year was heading to the river. Our guide knows the locations where they usually cross. Here we waited and waited, until the first animals appeared on the rivers edge. Now the real waiting got started until the herd was so big, it pushes itself over the edge in the water.
Before that I checked the light and decided with our guide where we would put our car for the photographs. When the herd started and came out of the river on our side we could go to the edge. This herd was about more then 200.000 animals, which locals call “ the black herd”. It took about 1,5 hours to cross, and gave us plenty of opportunity to make our images.
