Photographs from DLC Photography's Photo Safari to Tanzania, with International Expeditions (Oct. 25 - Nov. 5, 2012)
We had an incredibly successful Photo Safari to Tanzania, working in conjunction with International Expeditions and Ranger Safaris. There were 6 of us all together, along with Firoz and Ombeni, our awesome local guides. We had two Safari Vehicles, and traveled around Tanzania, shooting at several National Parks. The wildlife was just spectacular! It was simply surreal seeing Giraffes, Elephants, Zebras, Lions, Cheetahs, Wildabeests, Cape Buffalo, along with a tremendous variety of other wildlife: ungulates, babboons and monkeys, lizards, etc. And that was in addition to an incredible diversity of wildlife.
Everywhere we turned there was something new and exciting to shoot. I shot close to 3,500 frames during the course of the trip. The hardest task was going through this huge collection of images, trying to whittle it down to a more manageable size. I'm including more photos here than I usually do, as there is just so much to share. The locations we visited included Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, and the famous Serengeti, along with several stops along the way.
Also, for the first time I'm using jAlbum software to prepare the image galleries. In the past, I prepared each page manually, using Adobe PageMill when I started my website, and then later on using Microsoft Expression Web, but this has just become too tedious and time consuming, and lengthens the time to getting my images posted. I've tried to include most of the shooting information that I have presented in the past, so hopefully this will be as helpful to other photographers as with the prior format.
Since virtually all of the species we saw, especially the birds, were completely new and unknown to us, identifying everything has been quite a challenge. I hope to confirm and correct the ID's as time goes on, but didn't want to wait until that was completed before posting these pages. Finally, I again used my GPS Recorder. You can view the full-size images for each photo by clicking on the Thumbnails, and there will be a 'Globe' icon at the bottom left. If you click on this icon, it will take you to Google Maps to see where the photo was taken.
