Wow. We couldn’t stop saying “wow”, “amazing”. We learned first hand how valuable a truly skilled expert guide was. Our guides knew where to look, had incredible skill spotting animals and knowing what the animals were likely to do. They would say, “we go around there..” and boom, as if on cue, there was the cheetah lion or leopard. The trip was packed. Ands, incredible skill for setting us up to see AND get a great photo! We did as the guide suggested, up early to be out as the sunrise (6am) because that’s when the animals, especially cats are active.

If you’ve dreamed about Safari, go. Super skilled guides like Angelbert and his team take it from and A or B to and A++. So often we would find animals without other around. Or he would say let’s wait when others would leave.. and boom.. just masterful. These guys know their stuff and sticklers for safety. Just wow.

Take a fleece and light gloves (low was 40s?!) - and layers you can shed when it’s 80s and hot later the same day!

It was glam-ping. Always had electricity, hot water and private bathrooms. All the accommodations were gorgeous and luxurious looking with attentive service. But wouldn’t call it a foodie heaven. Good food, plenty of it.

This was a complete 5 star experience! We saw every animal we hoped to see right up close in a very safe way. Anglebert and his driver are an excellent team spotting animals other tours didn't see and approaching to the spot for *the best* imaginable pictures and experience with the animals. The jeep is luxurious with everything on board for a comfortable day. The hotels at night are an experience in and f themselves in breathtaking locations with wonderful rooms and great food. We had no idea what a life-time experience we would have as part of the celebration with our parents for their 75th birthdays!

I just returned from a wonderful safari to the northern Serengeti for the Mara River crossing, and it was amazing. Great photo opportunities, great lodging, and wonderful food. The guides and drivers Of Africa Nature Photography & Safaris are amazing, they find animals that other safaris miss, and then position the jeeps for the best photographs. An opportunity not to be missed!

I recently returned from a safari with Africa Nature Photography & Safaris. Everything was amazing! The accommodations were great, as was the food. The drivers/guides, Anglebert and Tom, are extremely knowledgable and know exactly how to position the vehicle in order to capture the best images. There were so many amazing wildlife viewing opportunities, but I must say that viewing 5 wildebeest river crossings over 3 days was a highlight. I definitely recommend this company and I look forward to another trip with them!

I just returned from a two week photo safari lead by Russ Burden. Africa Nature Safari's provided all the guiding and logistics and they were wonderful. Angelbert is a genius in finding the wildlife, and putting us all in position to get wonderful photographs. We made three separate visits to a mother leopard and her two cubs. How he was able to find them, and return to them is beyond me! And then there was the Great Migration. On my last trip to the area I felt luck to see one crossing of the Mara River. This time we were able to witness it six different times! I can't speak highly enough about the experience. And the accommodations and food were top notch.

Fist time in Africa and first safari. Africa Nature Photography was referred to me by a friend and I am very happy with my experience! Anglebert set everything up and it was perfect! From the accommodations, food, regional flights and safari guide, all top notch! Our guide Robby, is very knowledgeable, friendly and adjusted to our requests. We were able to catch the river crossing! Spectacular! We also saw all the big cats, including a mama Lion with her Cubs, hundreds of birds, elephants with babies, giraffe and the list goes on. Each night we came back to lodges that had excellent staff, outstanding food and tent accommodations that were clean and beautiful! I will schedule another safari with them and highly recommend them to everyone!

Mere words don't begin to do describe the experience I had with Anglebert and Tom on a recent Russ Burden photo safari. They took care of everything so we had to do was just sit back, relax and take pictures! They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and we saw amazing things! Everything was amazing and top-notch . The accommodations were beyond my expectations. Beautiful, comfortable and clean with amazing views. Not to mention, going to sleep listening to lions and hyenas! The staff at every place we stayed were extremely attentive and helpful. I enjoyed talking with many of them. They all had beautiful smiles! The food was delicious! Fresh vegetables and entrees amazingly prepared. The animal encounters we had were just amazing! We had plenty of time to watch and enjoy each animal. We were never rushed and I was surprised how comfortable and relaxed the animals were and willing to share their day with us. I came home with amazing amazing photos, memories and experiences I will cherish for a lifetime. I loved it so much I'm going back next year!

When driving down the road and Anglebert Pantaleo raises his index finger to softly say, “Excuse me for one minute while I check on something up ahead,” it’s time to grab your camera and plant it on a bean bag. Something wonderful is about to happen. Without fail, Anglebert and his assistant, Tom unearth endless photo opportunities. I found it a privilege to watch these two gentlemen while they danced with Mother Nature, seeking and finding one wonder after another. Whether it’s a majestic lioness poised on a kopjes protecting her cubs; a couple of massive Lions, each more handsome than Fabio on his best day; elephants rolling around in a pond, spraying one another to provide relief from the midday heat on the Serengeti; or not one or two but three Grey-headed Kingfishers bouncing on branches, poised for capture with perfect lighting and almost any lens, Anglebert and Tom aim to please. Safaris begin and end on time. Trucks are kept clean, with accommodations for every eventuality. Comfortable lodging, excellent food choices, and attentive staff are on hand to lug your bags in and out. Sit back and relax. Before you know it, you’ll be back home, in awe of the images you captured and grateful for the time you experienced bountiful Tanzania while under the care of Africa Nature Photography & Safaris.
