Be inspired

Chris Weston tells us about this unique safari: “Most people will never see a tiger in the wild but you’re not most people. The word special simply isn’t special enough to describe the thrill of your first encounter with a wild tiger – fire-bright eyes connecting to your soul through the intimacy of your lens. Add to this, knowing that you’ll be directly helping tiger conservation through our unique Photography Outreach Programme, and it all adds up to an enchanting, magical adventure in the jungles of India.”

Kanha and Bandhavgarh are two of India’s prime tiger reserves and, guided by National Geographic commended naturalist Nanda Rana and renowned wildlife photographer Chris Weston, you’re in expert hands to get the most out of your time in these two mystical parks. With 8 days in the field and 16 safari drives, with just 2 photographers per vehicle, they’ll make sure you never miss a shot, whether you’re photographing tigers, primates, birds, deer, wild dogs or any of the numerous species – many of them endangered – that inhabit these rich parks. There will be plenty of hands-on tuition, as well as evening talks and presentations.

Description

Chris explains further: “It’s hard to describe the feelings that well up inside you when a Bengal tiger comes into focus in your viewfinder. Whatever words spring to mind – magical, awe-inspiring, breathtaking – it’s an experience you’ll remember your entire life and we really want to share it with you.

“In addition, on this special Outreach Photo Safari, we’ll be directly helping India’s National Tiger Conservation Authority to fulfil its goal of fully populating all of India’s tiger reserves, through the donation of camera traps. It’s your chance to get involved and, through the medium of photography, do something that helps conserve this majestic creature. We think it’s an opportunity too magical to miss.”
