I'm so glad I booked this, what an amazing experience to see Bengal Tigers and the chance to photograph them as well. We had Tiger sightings everyday including mating Tigers and cubs. I remember the first time tracking a tigers foot prints then sitting in our jeep in silence listening for alarm calls, a spotted deer calls and the driver shouts Tiger Tiger and we set off in that direction. I had goose bumps it's a brilliant feeling. Andy and Sarah where always there to help they never stopped making sure everyone was cared for. The location was in a great place with easy access to the zones and the accommodation was great too. I would highly recommend this Tiger Tour you will not be disappointed Bandhavgarh is a wonderful place

We just got back from a tiger photography trip with Andy and Sarah. It was a brilliant experience. As usual, everything was tip top in order. Great place to stay, logistically perfectly arranged and all the conditions to see tigers optimal. They make sure the local operator and naturalist is equally as good. Bandhavgarh is certainly a magical place and seeing wild tigers is just incredible. It surely is a different thing than an African safari but it’s an experience not to be missed. And going with Andy and Sarah is highly recommended, if you plan to do so.

Andy and Sarah clearly do their homework when it comes to organising their trips. Botswana was a second trip for me with this couple and it did not disappoint in any way whatsoever. They use very good guides/drivers who know their wildlife and where to find it. The actual trip was a brilliant experience. We were all very well looked after in all respects. Both Andy and Sarah look after their guests and are not photographers who are only interested in getting their own shots. I would not hesitate recommending them and will certainly book with them again.

Having already experienced Andy’s and Sarah’s safari to Kenya, I decided to give Botswana a go. Oh my god what a journey they took me on, unbelievable sights of wildlife and natural beauty. I saw Elephants swimming, I saw my first Wild Dog and Wild Dog pups. I was speechless at some of the sightings. This was one of the best things i’ve done and thanks to them both an amazing trip.The camps and food was 5star, The journeys between the camps was nice as you just sat back watching the scenery. The staff were brilliant also always at hand to help.
I will differently be going back to Botswana

This was my first time I choose to go with Andy and Sarah, I had been to Kenya before. Everything from the first point of booking to the very end of the safari was out standing. Enthusiasm, knowledge and photographic information was superb. The camp was first class including the drivers. I had a wonderful time which will never be forgotten.

Jackie Downey – August 27, 2018

I have travelled to India many times and have mostly been very lucky and content with the tiger sightings that I’ve had. The tiger is very special to me – so I have high expectations – and this first trip that Andy and Sarah did met them. We went to Bandhavgarh – and I’ve been there a few times before but it had suffered some setbacks a few years ago – so I was keen to see how it had recovered – it had! We had some wonderful sightings and I came away very happy! To concentrate on the one Reserve is a good idea. They have an excellent local guide/naturalist as their ‘fixer’ and he ensured that everything went smoothly behind the scenes. Andy and Sarah spent time with us ensuring that we were happy with our shots etc . The accommodation was very good too. A great tiger trip!

Going to Botswana with Andy and Sarah was fabulous. The quality of the wildlife that we saw was amazing given the size of the areas we covered. They use a great local company too – which is very important! The camps were well appointed and maintained by the crew, who happily catered to everyone’s requirements. The sightings were excellent too – we had the wild dogs, amazing leopards, lions, elephants – the list goes on! A trip well recommended.

Travelling with these guys is fantastic. Their knowledge is impressive (both wildlife and photography) and their enthusiasm is infectious. The trips are well planned, every requirement is catered for and you come away with great shots, memories and friendships too. Am looking forward to what will be my 4th trip to Kenya with them later in the year.

This was not the first photographic safari that I have been on, but it was definitely the best. Sarah and Andy were always on hand to give advice on the best exposure / shutter speed to use. They also encouraged us to try new techniques to make our pictures stand out. Even when we were back at base they were happy to take time to help me with a problem I was having in using Lightroom. I’d definitely recommend them if you want to go on a safari, even if you are only a beginner with a basic camera.

Evert D – August 25, 2018

We went to Botswana with Andy and Sarah in 2017 and it was one of the most amazing trips we ever did! 

Expectations of Botswana are always quite high but the place certainly delivers. And more importantly: Sarah and Andy and their chosen local operator deliver too. 

The mobile camping experience is THE way to go in Botswana I think. Much more interesting than going to a super expensive fly in camp (and eventually, you’ll share much of the same reserves anyway), because you are actually out there camping in the bush, hearing lion roar at night and share stories around the camp fire after the drives, yet very comfortable because the wonderful staff puts up the camp and chef Eddy cooks amazing meals every night.

And also much better than driving yourself, because the guides (ours were Moses and Cruise) are super experienced and qualified; you’ll see much much more than when you’re driving yourself. They are great at picking up tracks and finding out where the good stuff is and read the animal behaviour very very well. 

The sightings were excellent; all the big cats (many leopards), wild dogs, huge bull elephants and beautiful birds; it’s all there. What we also liked was the approach of Andy and Sarah; they really make sure you get into position to get the good shots and pro-actively are working with you with tips to make your images better, also during the drives. And they do this in a very pleasant way too. The atmosphere in our group was really good. 

We enjoyed every minute of it; in fact – we might be back for more in the future!

Esther Streusand – August 24, 2018

The photo safari to Botswana is an absolutely amazing experience! The two main reasons it’s so incredible are the diversity and abundance of wildlife, and the tour operators, Sarah and Andy Skinner.

On this tour in July 2018, we saw leopards for six days straight (admittedly exceptional luck), wild dogs and their pups, lion prides and cubs, young lions and male lion coalitions, elephants in amazing numbers, with adorable youngsters, giraffes, zebras, hippos, lechwe, kudu, impalas, wildebeest and buffalo. And the bird life was fascinating too – everything from rare wattled cranes and ostriches, saddle-billed storks, African fish eagle and other eagles, down to skimmers and kingfishers.

Andy and Sarah are amazing, too. From the first contact I made with questions about the tour, they answered in great detail with descriptions, suggestions where I requested them, and such a cheerful openness that I was confident I had made the right choice. And that confidence was borne out every day on tour. Sarah and Andy made sure of every detail, and advised each of us about photography according to our skill level and our objectives. They are absolutely there for the guests, forgoing what could be wonderful photographic opportunities for themselves to make sure the guest have good views, the right exposures, and insights and information about the animals. I just can’t say enough good things about them – they are all about their guests, all the time.

The local guides were very good and quite knowledgeable, cheerfully answering questions, positioning the vehicles for good photography conditions, and tracking wildlife for early sightings in wonderful morning light to sunset silhouettes. The support team provided a variety of great food and very comfortable tent accommodations set up for us in the three sites – Moremi, Savuti, and Khwai. The last night, with a boat trip on the Chobe River, is icing on the cake, featuring swimming elephants and other mammals, plus a wide variety of birds.

The trip as a whole can be tiring, because you are up before dawn for early morning sightings, out until lunch, taking a short rest break before the afternoon game drive, then out again until sunset. Back at camp before dinner, there’s always a great fire to relax around with a choice of drinks, sharing stories and thoughts from the day. Then a good dinner, and a comfortable camp bed, as good as beds I’ve had in some hotels, to be honest. I don’t begrudge a minute of the lost sleep, as everything is organized to maximize photo opportunities in the field. Take LOTS of memory cards!!

If you choose this trip, prepare to be amazed!

Andy and Sarah’s photographic trips are amazing. They both go above and beyond what you might expect. Apart from being a great couple, with a wealth of knowledge and passion about African wildlife, they are extremely helpful with camera settings etc and, unlike other photographic trips I have been on, put their clients before themselves without a doubt. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending any of their trips. They are a very professional couple and I can’t wait until my next trip with them later this year.

Christine Butterworth – August 24, 2018

This trip was amazing – from start to finish. The wonderful position of Thamalakane Lodge, the 9 nights in mobile camps and a great finish on Chobe River. We had some wonderful sightings including wild dogs aplenty, lions swimming, the beautiful young leopard in a tree, elephants galore including swimming, playing, crossing the Chobe River and the list goes on. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone who has a slight sense of adventure. To have lions. leopards, wild dogs etc just wandering through our camp at night, with nothing between us but a canvas tent, was awesome. Apart from great wildlife sightings, wonderful food, sitting round the campfire at night exchanging stories etc., I was absolutely blown away by the night sky. I appreciated very much the fact that both Sarah and Andy were so helpful, showing us new techniques to use without the need to go into Lightroom etc. I can honestly say they are a great couple with a wealth of knowledge about African wildlife. They gave us so much attention, more so than any other photography trip I have been on. Can’t wait until I can do it all over again next year (yes, I’ve already booked)
