Are You Planning A Photo Safari To Rwanda? Scroll Down For Details..

Surreal. That’s what you’re thinking as you experience this vivid moment in Rwanda. An image unfolds before you—one that, until now, only existed in your imagination after years of poring over breathtaking photos in international nature and travel magazines. You cast a questioning glance at your Rwandan guide, who motions for you to be silent and watch. A timid mountain gorilla infant approaches a massive silverback with a soft expression, and you know that what is about to unfold must be recorded for all time. You feel a sense of anxiety slowly rise as you consider your composition, timing, and camera settings, barely breathing so as not to distract the amazing creatures before you. Your uncertainty subsides, though, when you hear the quiet voice of the photography instructor guiding you, providing expert insight on how to best create the image of a lifetime. You raise your camera, frame the shot, and gently press the shutter. Instantly, you know—the image is absolute perfection.

Imperfect camera skills should not hinder you from creating photographs that touch hearts and minds, and a photographic safari with AfricanMecca will ensure that you take home impeccable images that capture the beauty and spirit of Rwanda. From the novice on a wilderness holiday equipped only with a mobile phone or DSLR to the professional photographer on assignment in East-Central Africa, the combination of our superior guides and photography instructors will help you capture every precious moment with exquisite skill and competence.

The first step in creating a stunning photograph is finding your subjects, namely the wildlife. Our guides will take you to the best locations for photographing peaceful mountain gorillas and golden monkeys in Volcanoes Park, scampering chimpanzees in Nyungwe Forest Park, herbivores and carnivores on the savannah plains of Akagera Park, and colorful birdlife and a serene aquatic biome at Lake Kivu. We will schedule your image-seeking outings to coincide with the best light; early morning and in the evening before sunset are known as the “golden hours.” Choosing a vantage point for your imagery is also important, and safety is always a consideration. Our guides and instructors work together to position guests in a way that maximizes the opportunities for exceptional photographs.

AfricanMecca Safaris hand-selects the photography instructors we provide to our guests visiting Rwanda. These are private and exclusive encounters with our instructors and are never offered as part of a group, due to the specialist nature of the terrain and fauna in Rwandan parks and reserves. Our success matching instructors with guests is evidenced by our 70% return booking rate for guests who seek a particular genre; these guests routinely request the same photography instructor from their previous exploratory trips to photographically capture the beauty of Africa.

Under the expert tutelage of our instructors, your bush tour in Rwanda will offer you extensive and practical education in the most important aspects of photography. Their guidance will breathe life into your images of Africa with the use of filters, aperture, depth-of-field, exposure, composition, and much more. No longer will you share lackluster snapshots with your friends and family, feeling embarrassed by their casual response as you desperately try to verbalize what the photograph did not relay. Instead, you will have a portfolio of images that capture the wildlife and scenery of your Africa dream vacation, as well as the emotional aspects of your experience in Rwanda.
