Please note that the 2016 & 2017 trips are now sold out. Please contact me directly at laptop@magdrill.co.uk for information about future trips that I am planning.

The information below will give you an idea of what to expect on one of my trips.


This will be a full on photography trip with 14 action packed days of photography in some of the very best game parks in Africa. We will have the services of our very experienced driver guides who will be taking us to The Serengeti National Park together with The Ngorongoro Crater and the Ndutu Plains.

Our visits are timed to see the Great Migration which is usually in Ndutu & the Serengeti at this time of the year. We will stay in top quality lodges with great food and first class service. I do often go to this area in November when the migration is not around. It is a much more laid back time to go with a lot less people and trucks. You still get to see all the big cats and spend some often uninterrupted periods of quality time with them.

The trip will suit all skill levels and I will be there to help and advise the less experienced. If the numbers allow we will have a separate teaching truck together with trucks for the more experienced. We will aim to have three truck’s, all with radios which will allow each truck to be independent when on safari. This is very important as each truck can pick and choose where to go and how much time to spend with each subject. It also means that between the trucks we will be able to cover more ground giving us a better chance to find the more exciting subjects.

The trucks are open topped and have six seats in the back with a maximum of three people in each truck.

The price for future trips is yet to be set but will include all your food and accommodation, all the park fees and the flying doctor service. The flights are extra and will be approximately £750 to £795 from the UK providing that you book nice and early.

Bottled drinking water is provided in the trucks each day but bar drinks, tips and laundry is not included.
