An amazing photo isn’t just about the actual shot, it’s really about the subject, so if you are a photography buff or even an enthusiast, this might very well be the perfect adventure for you, it sure did peak our interest.
Now, being in the right place at the right time is the key to capturing nature’s images, but, having the help of the world’s best photographers in breathtaking destinations around the world can play a part too. Hosted by seasoned wildlife photographers George Kourounis and Stig Brondbo, two new exclusive safaris offered by Exodus Travels – Africa Lunar Photo Safari and Galapagos Photographic Charter – combine the exhilarating experience of wildlife watching in some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes with the excitement of honing your shutterbug skills.
Famed explorer and TV personality George Kourounis leads the exhilarating 21-day Africa Lunar Photo Safari through the heart of southern Africa’s dramatic scenery, with rich culture, diverse wildlife and the opportunity to partake in numerous activities such as wine‐tasting, climbing the world’s highest sand dunes, and safaris in Etosha and Chobe.
From South Africa’s cosmopolitan Cape Town, travellers explore Namibia’s spectacular desert landscape and wildlife-rich game parks, visit one of the largest inland deltas on earth in Botswana and head to the mighty Victoria Falls on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia. There they will have the rare opportunity to witness and capture the magic of the “Lunar Rainbow,” a spectacle best witnessed in the early hours after moonrise to create a moonbow as light is refracted by water particles in the air, ever‐present from the spray of the Falls.
Africa Lunar Photo Safari, 21 days from CAD$5,695, June 21 – July 11, 2017
Galapagos Photographic Charter offers travellers the opportunity to join a once-in-a-lifetime charter through the magical Galapagos Islands led by top Norwegian travel photographer, Stig Brondbo. This exclusive one-time charter includes workshops and plenty of opportunities to capture images of rare wildlife including red-footed boobies, Galapagos penguins, flightless cormorants, Galapagos fur seals, giant tortoises, and blue-footed boobies.
Onboard a First-Class Motor Sail Catamaran, the small-group will sail around Isabela, Rabida and Genovesa Islands to view stark lava fields, cactus forests, volcanic craters, mangrove lagoons and turquoise waters. Travellers will step around snoozing sea lions, watch the courting rituals of Blue-footed boobies and snorkel with turtles, sharks and rays.
Stig Brondbo, a Norwegian photographer with a passion for travel, has grown up with an appreciation for nature and regularly has the chance to capture whales and the incredible spectacle of the Northern Lights through his lens without having to venture too far from his front door.
