Photography Tour on offer
« on: September 15, 2016, 12:09:15 »
with the blessings of the boys - I offer you - (and just ask Bjørn for a personal reference!

Photography tour – get-together/tour/safari CAPE TOWN, South Africa

I am offering a photography tour to each Nikongear member between 1 October 2016 and 30 September 2017 – AT COST

This is a special offer to each member (photographers only)– for your first tour of your choice for 3 days. Longer tours can be discussed if you prefer to stay on.

What will this cost you?
Cost of hiring a vehicle – to be divided between members on tour.  No profit or costs for me. Should 2 – 3 members join – we will use my own vehicle – and cost thereof will be the same as rental of a vehicle. Fuel to be shared between members. Everybody is responsible for their own insurance.

No guiding fees will apply - No cost for my time – no profit for me.

Meals, entrance fees, activity fees (eg game drives and shark cage diving) for your own cost. Just like any other get-together of like-minded people.

Accommodation – I can accommodate between 3 and 5 members at any one time – at my own home (Air B&B). Cost – $15 per person per night. Or you can stay wherever you prefer. Should we do out of town trips – accommodation for your own account.

My tours are exclusive – which means I usually only take 2 -3 people maximum due to the size of my vehicle, and the different interests of photographers.  If there is a bigger group – obviously vehicle hire and accommodation costs will be affected. 

My tours are quite different to the usual standard tours – as we don’t only go where tourists go – each tour is unique to your field of interest – and you won’t be tied up to a time schedule.

I would take this opportunity in a flash if I had the chance to travel to SA.

It just would not be fair to my family and most of all to my young daughter.
I don't think there will be any of this kind of travel for me in the next several years.
We all make our own choices and then live with them.

You know what - one day there will be time - then we talk :)
I fully understand - my kids are grown now - but it took several decades for me to get to this point - so I really do get it.
You can tour with us in spirit and enjoy the photos when posted :)

Absolutely yes, I look/read your posts with interest, and a bit of envy.
And when the time comes that I am free to travel, I actually don't mind paying a fair amount.

Anthony - that would depend somewhat on what you want to photograph.

what is your preference?  Flower season on the West Coast is just about over. We are going into summer - so lots of birds now. We should also have good weather this time of year, through to April at least (but no guarantees of course)
Winter is preferable for shark breaching - although you get sharks all year round - just not as many breaching.
