The most common question people ask when they learn I'm an international photography tour guide is usually related to what the accommodations are like and what to expect in Tanzania, Africa. Here's a little of what it looks like on a Rob's Wildlife photo tour to Tanzania. These pictures were taken during my 2016 Tanzania photo tour.
This was our camp in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, Africa. There were 2 guests per tent. Each tent had two twin size beds (traditional mattress on a metal frame), a toilet room, a changing area, and a shower room. Multi-course meals are served and come with a choice of water, juice, soft drink, tea, coffee, or one of the local beers.
Aside from when we camped in the Serengeti National Park, oversized swimming pools where available everywhere we stay; incredibly inviting and refreshing after a long day on a photography safari.
This wall of this swimming pool wall is on the Tarangire National Park border. You could see elephants tug at tree branches ~100 yards away as we swam in the pool. The service staff at all the lodges are very kind, professional, and eager to help whether it be carrying luggage or refilling beverages.
Check out the restroom. The colorful stained concrete tub was HUGE and wider than some hot tubs in America.
There is an abundance of wildlife and street photography opportunities in Tanzania. I love the local cultural flare and brightly colored fabrics and buildings. Women selling textiles or transporting produce on large bowls balanced atop their heads dot the sides of the roads.
A Tanzania style handcart and tire rack.
Once villager boys turn 10, they are responsible for overseeing a livestock herd. They can walk up to 15 miles a day (without adult supervision!) and carry a stick to fight off any lion, leopard, and other wildlife that threatens their herds.
Tanzania is one of my favorite places to visit. To learn more about wildlife photography tours to Africa, head over here.
Until next time, Kwaheri!

When I began taking photography seriously, I always dreamed of someday having my work displayed in a prestigious gallery.
Being a photographer, my eyes are always for quality products and tools that make photography easier.
