“We had an amazing experience on our first trip to Botswana. Khwai was amazing with its water and leopard, Savute with its incredible elephant and lion and finishing off at Chobe, with eye level photographic opportunities of our favourites: elephant, buffalo, wild dog and hippo. I took photos I’d never taken before and that’s very special. We’ll certainly choose Tusk next time.”

I can’t praise the level of service high enough. First-hand professional help on all matters relating to nature and wildlife photography.

I traveled with Tusk twice this year. They offer excellent service. I have greatly improved my photography skills thanks to them. I will definitely travel with them again in the future.
The best photo safari ever, Wim and his team are head and shoulders above the rest, they provide opportunities and knowledge to take award-winning pictures.
Their tours are well organized with luxury accommodations and they make sure that you will have an experience that you will never forget!
I have had the pleasure of using Tusk Photo for several years. They have guided me from a simple point-and-shoot camera to full-frame excitement. All of the people I have interacted with have been patient, friendly, and on top of their game. We have become social friends through our shared enthusiasm for photography and I would highly recommend going and visiting them!
