Be patient, it may sound a little strange but patience is one of those wildlife photography tips that really will improve your wildlife pics. The most interesting animal images are the ones where they exhibit some kind of behavior other than sleeping or walking around and to capture these type of images, takes time and patience.
Be prepared and ready with your camera at all times for those stunning photographs, animals suddenly appear and may only give you a glimpse. A general setting is recommended at f8, servo mode with aperture priority for the sharpest photos.
When taking close-up pictures with a tele-photo lens set the aperture at f8 and focus on the animal’s eyes. This guarantees that most of the animals face will be in focus in your photo.
When the subject is in motion, use a shutter speed of at least 1/125 for sharper images, except if you are using a panning method. Photographs of birds in flight necessitate speeds of 1/500 or more. A good starting point for wildlife photography is a lens with a 300mm in focal length. Good bird photos will require a 500mm lens.
Do not centre all your photos, leave room in your subject for the animal to move into. This will prevent lifeless composition and give an imitate portrayal of your subject in your images. Photographs taken at the animal’s eye-level will appear more sensational.
If your prime reason for going on safari is to take photos, do not go on a regular safari. You will find yourself sharing your vehicle with up to 6 guests. So do not expect to stay at any sighting long enough to take any behavioral pics.
Use the available light to the best advantage for all those stunning photos. One of the lesser known wildlife photography tips is that the best time for spotting wildlife animals on safari is during the early morning and late evening. Coincidentally that is also when the light is best for photography so take full advantage of this. Midday is problematic because of the harsh direct light and dark bodies against light backgrounds makes for difficult exposure of your animal pictures.
Getting the focus right is not as easy as it sounds especially with today’s auto focus cameras. Because there are often branches, grass and vegetation obscuring the subject in safari wildlife photos the camera can easily focus on that instead of the animal. So be careful that your camera isn’t focusing on that clump of grass in front of the subject and spoil that once in a life-time image.
Think carefully about the aperture you use for the best pics. By using a large aperture you can throw the background out of focus to isolate the subject on your image.


The unit of currency is the Tanzanian shilling (Tsh) and there are no smaller denominations. It’s best to carry as little cash as possible when travelling to avoid further inconvenience if anything should be lost or stolen.
Major currencies (like the US Dollar, the English Pound, and the Euro) are easily changed in large towns, although US Dollars are sometimes preferred.
Forex bureaus offer faster service than banks and although the exchange rates are only nominally different, the bureaus usually offer a better rate on travellers’ cheques. Standard Chartered banks around the country have ATM machines that allow you to withdraw cash from your VISA card and Barclay’s Bank ATMs allow you to withdraw on both VISA and MasterCard accounts. Credit cards are accepted at our camp during checkout & can be charged through phone from our Dar ES Salaam office.


Tanzania is a safe country to travel in. Tanzanians are warm-hearted and generous people and they are eager to help visitors get the most out of their stay. Tanzania is a true example of tolerance and cooperation in our modern world, with an evidenced multicultural diversity that has co-existed for centuries and has a lot to offer the world by its example.
As in all countries, a little common sense goes a long way and reasonable precautions should still be taken, such as locking valuables in the hotel safe, which frees your mind to absorb the natural beauty and incredible sights that will stay with you forever.
