Wildlife Worldwide introduces photography trips
Wildlife Worldwide is offering the opportunity for photographers of all abilities to improve their skills under the expert tutelage of award-winning wildlife photographer Nick Garbutt on trips to three countries in 2010: Zambia, Kenya and Borneo.
Nick Garbutt is an expert on all three destinations and, working closely with Wildlife Worldwide’s own team of experts, the ultimate itineraries have been created.
There are two departures for each destination – one for beginners and one for advanced photographers – to enable people to choose a date according to their particular skill level. The dates are designed to run one after the other, so anyone completing the first course can go on and take the advanced lessons if desired.
Borneo – departs 1 & 7 May, from £2949 pp
The focus for the trip is the pristine lowland rainforest of the Danum Valley, which is arguably Borneo’s premier wildlife location and five full days (six nights) will be spent there. Accommodation is in the Borneo Rainforest Lodge, located on the banks of the Danum River. Within the vicinity of the lodge there is a network of well laid-out trails that allow easy access and ample opportunity to photograph some of the forest’s amazing biodiversity including the magnificent orang-utan.
Kenya – departs 16 & 26 June, from £2799 pp
This itinerary is based in the Masai Mara, arguably the most famous wildlife National Park on earth and home to thousands of species of flora and fauna. Extraordinary sunrise and sunset light provide photographers with a chance to capture some truly remarkable images. Accommodation is at the luxurious Mara Plains camp which opened in 2008.
Zambia – departs 16 & 22 October, from £3795
The trip is based in two locations in the south Luangwa National Park, Kakuli and Kapani. The Luangwa Valley is renowned for the quality of mammal and bird encounters and offers endless inspiration. Alongside the watchful eye of Nick, who will accompany the group throughout; there will be five full days of workshops and tuition. Accommodation is in two of the finest safari lodges in Africa.
On all the trips, after each day's shooting, the small groups (max. 8 people) will return to the lodges to spend time learning how to work with the images on photo editing software and cataloguing them.
Prices include flights, all transportation, most meals (depending on trip), accommodation and all tuition (single rooms available at a supplement).
