One Photographer’s Love of November in Tanzania

July 3, 2013 Caracal suffocating gazelle | Unique Safaris

There is truly no bad time to travel to Tanzania for a photo safari. Each month has its own unique allure that is determined by both weather patterns and animal migrations. However here is why Mike Hagen, one of our featured professional photographers, loves leading safaris in November

1. Fewer tourists visit Tanzania in November. This means less people on the roads. In fact, you can go for hours, sometimes even an entire day and not see another vehicle.
2. Prices are lower so the total trip cost is more manageable.
3. The grasses are shorter which mean better opportunities to locate and photograph wildlife, including all the big cats (lion, leopard and cheetah), and even the smaller ones like the serval cat.
4. Being in the midst of hundreds of thousands of wildebeests during their annual migration to southern Serengeti.
5. The chance to see thousands of elephants in Tarangire National Park

Mike’s Photo Safaris
Mike’s safaris are specifically designed to maximize photo opportunities for all travelers. Everything he does revolves around getting in the right spot at the right time for beautiful images of both wildlife and landscapes. Since he keeps the groups small, individuals have the opportunity to spend as much time on a subject as wanted, without the pressure to move on or get somewhere else quickly.
