You are invited to join Mark Comon and Simba Marara’s premier safari guides and for an exciting wildlife and cultural adventure to Tanzania.  Experience the Africa of your dreams.  Our team will provide the ideal safari, tailored to provide amazing experiences, which put us in position to have fun, make breathtaking photographs and create life-time memories!

We’ve hired Africa’s foremost guides, Lema Peter to introduce us to the native cultures and Oscar Mwangi, to find the animals and teach us their behaviors!  We are staying in deluxe lodges and eating amazing meals… all while close to Nature and the real Africa!  We’ll ride in customized safari vehicles (four photographers per vehicle instead of the usual seven people) to ensure great photo and visual opportunities for everyone.

Our Africa safari offers the opportunity to meet the Tanzanian tribes and capture the big game animals and colorful birds in true “National Geographic” style while enjoying the company of good friends and fantastic photographers.  We plan to be on location for the great migration and all the photo ops that accompany the annual movement of the predator and prey.  Two game-drives each day, visits to local villages and Mark’s personal attention will assure your success and enjoyment.  Don’t miss it… register today!
