Video Photo Safari Two Rivers, Zambia
Our unique photo tour Two Rivers Zambia combines two of the most spectacular national parks in Zambia. You will visit the pristine South Luangwa National Park and travel to the most beautiful part of the Kafue National Park, which is still an insider tip. At our time of travel, there is often still water in the wide plains. In addition to classic game drives, you will take boat excursions through the many natural channels on this Zambia photo safari.
The area is known for regular lion sightings and in June there is also a great variety of birds on the plains. It is a scene straight out of the Garden of Eden. During our travel time there is often fog over the plains early in the morning, which – with a bit of luck – makes for particularly atmospheric pictures.
Video Photo Safari Untouched Africa, Zimbabwe
On this photo tour you will be enchanted by the natural treasures of Zimbabwe. The impressive Victoria Falls are among the largest waterfalls on earth. Hwange National Park and Mana Pools National Park are among the most beautiful parks in southern Africa. Lake Kariba is very picturesque. All these areas are still considered insider tips and are far away from mass tourism.
This very exclusive photo tour Zimbabwe was developed by photographers for photographers. You will stay in the best camps in the middle of the parks.
Video Photo Expedition Spitsbergen, Autumn
Many places in Spitsbergen are easily accessible in autumn, especially the northeast – for example the seven islands (Sjuoyane), one of the best locations for polar bears.
At this time of year, photo motifs present themselves in a beautiful autumn dress. White snow-covered mountain peaks and the tundra in bright autumn colours. In September, depending on the weather conditions, there is also a very good chance of fantastic light moods. The low setting of the sun conjures up a warm light in the landscape.
Video Photo Expedition Spitsbergen, Winter
In winter and spring, Spitsbergen is still in its classic winter dress. The mountains and landscapes are covered in snow and there is a lot of pack ice in the fjords and bays. Depending on the ice situation, the route usually leads along the west coast, which is now easily accessible.
At this time of year, the photo motifs present themselves in a beautiful winter dress. White landscapes, much more ice and animals in the middle of an icy landscape. In March and April, depending on the weather conditions, you also have very good chances of fantastic light moods during sunrise and sunset. The low sun conjures up the landscape in a warm light.
Video Photo Tour Faroe Islands
The Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic are a unique destination at the edge of the world. Small and remote, the rugged volcanic islands offer spectacular nature. Dramatic landscapes meet a wild ocean here. You can expect epic landscapes with ever-changing weather and light. The photo motifs that the Faroe Islands have to offer make the heart of every photography and nature enthusiast beat faster.
Nature in the Faroe Islands demands flexibility, as weather conditions can change rapidly. However, varied light moods are guaranteed in this destination.
Video Photo Tour European Brown Bears, Slovenia
Slovenia is a densely wooded country and a full 60 percent of its land area is covered with forests. The most extensive forests are found in the south of Slovenia, in the Dinaric Alps in the Notranjska region. Because of their remoteness and sparse settlement, these forests are the ideal habitat for numerous animal species, including bears. An estimated 800 – 1000 brown bears live in this region.
On this Bear Slovenia photo tour you will photograph the bears from protective hides. Chances are very good that you will get great pictures of bears. Our local guides will also take you to various highlights of the Notranjska region such as enchanting gorges, mysterious caves and idyllic lake scenery.
Video Photo Safari Masai Mara, Kenya
The Masai Mara is one of Africa’s most famous wildlife areas. The region is famous for regular and spectacular animal sightings. On the Masai Mara Explorer photo tour you have among other things very good chances to photograph big cats like lions, leopards or cheetahs. This photo tour is pure Africa! Look forward to great wildlife sightings, a picture-perfect African savannah landscape and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
With Mara North and Olare Motorogi, you will visit two private concessions that directly border the Masai Mara National Park. Here you will find the best conditions to enjoy front row sightings and photography.

We had to wait a long time before we could finally travel to Patagonia. But it was worth it in every respect. What an incredible 10 days we experienced in this unique landscape! Perfectly guided by Thomas Brühlmann, Cristina Harboe and the other local guides, we were able to let off steam photographically. But the highlight was definitely the 3 days of puma tracking. Here we were able to benefit from Rodrigo Moraga's many years of knowledge and photograph the animals at almost arm's length. I would love to go there again right away!
"Street photography starts at the end of your comfort zone" - This was the first sentence of Jens Krauer, course instructor, at the introduction to our course in Amsterdam. How true! During four often long days, we slowly left our comfort zone, hesitant and shy at first, and ventured further and further. Thanks to the skilful methodology and didactics of Jens, who confronted us daily with ever new, ever more challenging tasks, we gained confidence and self-assurance. By the end, we had grasped the essence of street photography and were already able to take some beautiful shots. Jens was an excellent and patient teacher who had brought us considerably further in terms of image composition and creativity. I really got an appetite for street photography after the course!
I had a dream; to see and photograph a polar bear in the wild once in my life. So I set out on this adventure with Amazing Views. What I experienced is unsurpassable: accompanying and photographing a polar bear in the Zodic....it was a magical moment that turned into hours!!!! In addition I also had the chance to photograph walruses, sea lions and beautiful landscapes. My big thanks go to Jenny and Daisy for their so benevolent way of accompanying me and to the whole crew of the Virgo. The 10 days went by in a flash and I can only say THANK YOU and my dream came true.
Claudio & Andrea
Like all tours with Amazing Views, this tour was perfectly organised. We were super well looked after by Jenny and Daisy, who had endless time and patience for us, not only when taking pictures, but also when editing them. The ship (the MS Virgo) is ideal for photographers. The newly renovated rooms are very nice and functional with plenty of space for all the winter clothes. But the hammer is the lounge, which is ideally suited to our needs. Enough space for everyone with their laptops, power sockets everywhere, a big TV for picture meetings and presentations, and always enough pastries to keep our lines in shape. The Zodiac drivers were also responsible for scanning the horizon literally around the clock for interesting wildlife. The fact that these two are also full-time professional photographers was of course great, as it meant we were looked after even better and they also knew exactly how to position the Zodiac so that everyone got their picture. All in all, this trip easily exceeded our expectations.
The photo tour "Wild Scotland" has the right name. We experienced a week with weather typical for this region. Overcast skies, sunshine in between, dense fog in the mountains and short heavy rain showers with strong winds. It was a good opportunity to test out the waterproof and windproof clothing. The tour was well organised and everything worked well. Ralf led the tour prudently with a lot of humour, constantly coordinating with Nick, the local photographer, in choosing the next photo stop. They reacted flexibly to the changing weather. Both supported the participants very well in photo-technical questions and Nick, thanks to his very good local knowledge, was able to draw our attention to small details in the composition of the picture. The photo tour is recommended for photographers who want to experience the wild nature of Scotland and especially the beautiful Isle of Skye.
Simply excellent, unsurpassed!!! My compliments! Our guides Jenny and Bernard harmonised in an exemplary way, everything was well organised. Both were able to motivate and stimulate excellently and gave the best support. Without question: a unique, highly exciting, fantastic and unforgettable photo tour! Tour guiding which cannot be beaten. An organisation without bad luck, breakdowns or mishaps. A Faroe Islands tour with Jenny and Bernard >> you have to strike... immediately!
When the two natural phenomena of the Faroe Islands and Bernard Geraghty comes together, a fantastic photo tour is guaranteed! The experience was garnished with a great group and as always it was perfectly organised by Amazing Views. Thank you very much for another great photo tour!
The tour was super organised and I felt very comfortable. In our exciting and interesting Highland Lodge we were excellently spoiled with fresh and local food by the three wonderful cooks. Above all, of course, we were accompanied, looked after and supported photographically in a great way. The daily planning was always adapted to the weather/light and our wishes. Rough landscapes, white sandy beaches, 'wild' ponies, Highland cows, lighthouses, ruins and much more. Jenny and Nick put a lot of effort to give us the best possible experience. On top of that we had a great group. I had fun and learned a lot of new things. It was a great week in the Outer Hebrides!
Do you want to experience a great tour where you can fully concentrate on photography and experience wonderful moments? Then Amazing Views is the right one for you. On our Lofoten tour everything was perfectly organised. We were wonderfully looked after and cared for by Jenny and Cody throughout the trip. Thanks to them we were able to make the best out of the different weather conditions. As a great bonus, I was able to make wonderful new friends during this week. Conclusion: We had a wonderful time with many unique pictures....you are amazing.
Jenny and Nick passed on their immense knowledge of photography in an understandable way. We were guided to several beautiful, secluded photo spots every day and were able to capture unforgettable moments in pictures. I can unreservedly recommend the tour to the Outer Hebrides - also from a culinary point of view.
The photo tour on Lewis and Harris was simply great. The lodge on a secluded inlet was unique. Three ladies spoiled us with local specialities from the sea and from their own garden. The photo spots were varied, from Caribbean beaches to picturesque cliffs to abandoned houses. The supervision by Jenny, even apart from the photography, was super, she took care of everyone and everything. The mixed group of participants rounded it all off and so I spent an unforgettable week on the island. I was very satisfied with the photo tour guides. We didn't have to worry about anything. Jenny and Nick chose the photo spots depending on the weather, time of day and light and were there to help us with advice and action. Even special requests like the Highland cows or a visit to an old cemetery were fulfilled. Amazing Views is absolutely recommendable! Whether for an evening workshop or a photo trip, we would be happy to come back again and again!
Iceland was my first tour with Amazing Views but definitely not the last. It was a great photo trip with interesting travel companions and great tour guides. Stefan and Fabio were always helpful, took their time with questions and you could tell that they are passionate about photography. Scenically, Iceland is amazing and has a lot to offer. We visited impressive waterfalls, barren rocky landscapes, black beaches, glaciers, a volcano (which unfortunately only smoked a bit but didn't spit fire at that moment), Icelandic horses, etc., etc.. One highlight was, of course, the northern lights. I was as happy as a little child about them. It really was a great week with lots of impressions and great photos.
It was my first tour with Amazing Views (and not my last). As a fan of wildlife photography, I got my money's worth. It was fascinating to observe the wild bears in the wild. Thomas' technical support was a great help for me as a beginner, and the exchange with the other members of the group was also extremely helpful. The organisation worked flawlessly, be it the transport or the accommodation in a smart guesthouse. To liven up the week, we also visited a cave and were able to use our skills there under difficult lighting conditions. All in all, the week was a huge success and Slovenia with its bears is definitely worth a trip. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
I booked this trip immediately after the cats of the Kalahari photo tour: the difference and contrast of both trips (Kalahari: desert with all the red and brown colour vs. Mashatu: rich green partly with yellow flower carpet) is fantastic! Very good support by Hannes and Thomas, who can also give experienced photographers helpful tips. Very comfortable lodge with excellent staff, especially the local guides.
