Wildlife Photography Tour of Bandipur National Park
May 20th, 21st and 22nd
|Images from Bandipur|
As the summer approaches and wild animals come out of their hiding in search of water, Darter Photography Tours take you to the big-cat country – Bandipur – to photograph the majestic stripes and dots, besides a variety of wildlife – large to tiny – of the Indian jungles.
Darter Photography brings you an opportunity to photograph birds and big mammals in Bandipur National Park, one of the richest wildlife parks in South India. Summer offers the best sightings and chance to photograph elephants, tigers, leopards as well as many other mammals and birdlife in the park. With an increasing population of tigers and frequently reported sightings in summer, and supported with expert guidance from Darter Photography Expert, chances of your coming back with beautiful images of wildlife in the park are fairly high.
Also, a huge pachyderm population in Bandipur, frequently encountered with their little ones near the water-holes, gives you plenty of opportunity to capture various moods in the life of these giants. Besides the big cats and large mammals, we will also focus on seeing and photographing the diverse wildlife in Bandipur, such as Malabar Giant Squirrels, Stripe-necked Mongooses, Grey Jungle Fowls, Serpent and Hawk Eagles and Green Pigeons, to name just a few.
The tour includes:
- Four jeep safaris into the park
- Session on photographing wildlife – techniques, aesthetics and ways to approach the subjects
- Assistance on field in getting best images
- Daily image reviews and feedback at the end of every day’s shoot
- On-field assistance in identifying and understanding wildlife in the park
All through the tour, constant guidance from Darter Photography Expert will help you get the best out of your trip to the wilderness.
Please note that while chances sightings are fairly high, we cannot give you any assurance.
