October 30, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Sanctuary Retreats has teamed up with renowned photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks to offer an eight night safari in Tanzania from a different perspective.

Next March, a maximum of six guests will have the chance to combine epic wildlife viewing and authentic tented accommodation with a hands-on, in-depth photography workshop in three of Africa's greatest game destinations.

What better way to uncover the secrets of wildlife photography than with this one-off photo safari exploring the remote Tarangire National Park with its baobabs and herds of elephants, the game-rich caldera of the Ngorongoro Crater or the fabled endless plains of the Serengeti?

The photo safari begins in a remote corner of the Tarangire with two nights at luxury tented camp Sanctuary Swala. The waterhole in front of camp attracts wildlife including waterbuck, elephant, lion and even the odd leopard perfect for practicing new photography skills.

The Tanzania safari continues with two nights in our exclusive mobile camp on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. The wildlife concentration here is awe-inspiring. Finally venture into the epic plains of the Serengeti, in search of the wildebeest migration, for the chance to capture the greatest land migration on Earth on camera.

Accommodation in the Serengeti is at our remote tented camp Sanctuary Kusini, completing the tremendous experience of sleeping under canvas beneath the African sky.

Paul's passion for Tanzania and enthusiasm for wildlife is sure to add an extra dimension to the photographic expertise he brings as guests learn how to capture the exciting scenes that constantly unfold in the bush.

Paul has spent the last 17 years living and working as a professional photographer in East and Central Africa. He has published several critically acclaimed photography books on Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia demonstrating the breadth of his photography knowledge and diversity of his life experiences. Paul is an Associate member of the Royal Photographic Society and lifelong Tanzania enthusiast.

At the very heart of his photography is an exuberant passion for Africa and having travelled extensively throughout the East African region, Paul is fluent in Swahili and has an insightful perception of local cultures.
