Photography tips

The morning and afternoon light is perfect for photographing wildlife and your safari guide is an expert at positioning the vehicle for the best results. Wildlife photos must be taken from the vehicle and clients are never allowed to get out of the vehicle for a closer shot. Occasionally, where it is safe, you will be able to get out of the vehicle to take a picture of scenery. Please do not photograph people without first asking permission as many Tanzanians take great offense to this, particularly the Maasai, because of social, tribal, and religious beliefs.

However, you will have opportunities to photograph local people on many of your drives and at some villages even though you may be asked to pay for the privilege. It is also a good idea to bring a small tripod for filming sunsets and scenery. On safari vehicles, it is best to use a bean bag to get a steady shot and try shooting from the lower windows as the lessened angle will give a more intimate effect.

Wildlife viewing tips

Some of the best game viewings in all of Africa can be found in Tanzania. In order to view the greatest amount and variety of wildlife, Economic Adventure Safaris provides highly skilled and knowledgeable guides that will tell you about their country, tribal cultures, and wildlife behavior. They will also amaze you with their ability to spot animals that you will have trouble seeing with your binoculars. If you are patient and observe the interaction of the animals rather than rushing to check off the next animal on your list, you will have an extraordinary wildlife experience.

The Tanzanian guides always put client safety first and on roads that are rough and bumpy. They do their best to avoid tire swallowing potholes. Main highways are paved but roads in the safari areas are dirt and usually, the main park roads are only graded once a year. Most "travel days" involve less than four hours driving time between parks with light aircraft flights used for longer stretches.
