Premier Photo Safaris

C4 Premier Photographic Safaris are designed to give you the highest possible photographic safari experience. Combining our already excellent flair for finding photo rich environments, we now have made select choices on group size and the speciality of the guide leading the tour. On a C4 Premier Safari you can expect a smaller group of photographers, more guides per photographers and luxuriant accommodation to make your travels in Africa as comfortable as possible.

It results in an experience that offers you the best of what every destination has to offer. Here are the principal advantages of travelling on a C4 Premier safari:

  • Smaller groups of travellers
  • Lower guide-to-client ratio ensuring you get as much attention as you require
  • Only two-three photographers per vehicle - Highest standard accommodation
  • Often, this is also to out-of-the-way destinations.

Search through the selected Premier Safaris below to see how carefully we choose and design these. Feel free to enquire about any questions via e-mail here.
