Rockjumper Birding Tours’ photographic tours are offered in conjunction with its sister company ORYX – Worldwide Photographic Expeditions. These tours are structured on the same basis as Rockjumper’s Classic tours, but are designed and guided by professional wildlife photographers. These tours are timed for premier photographic opportunities, be it optimal bird and wildlife activity or favorable weather conditions. They have been carefully crafted to provide participants with the chance to capture potentially award-winning images, and our expert leaders will not only tutor you on photographic techniques and digital processing, but will also interpret animal behavior to ensure a thoroughly rewarding birding and wildlife experience.
Please note: This itinerary the above day to day Expeditions itinerary is a guideline only and the program is dependent upon weather and ice conditions, as well as wildlife.
