What Dale’s travel clients

SAY ABOUT HIM
  • Ethiopia

    “I second all of what Shobha has said.  We had such an amazing time.   Dale was fabulous, as were all the rest of the team.  We always felt well taken care of, and safe.

    Dale was not only generous with his knowledge but also his lenses.  He truly has a wealth of information and we really learnt so much from him.  His wicked sense of humour was also much appreciated 🙂
    We are sure to be doing more photo tours with ORYX in the not too distant future!”

  • Madagascar

    “Without Dale and the Oryx team it would have been impossible to travel in the country. The help was exceptional in dealing with the changes and I never worried we wouldn’t get to where we wanted to go. Dale works very hard to ensure everyone has the best possible angles for shooting and helped me with flash settings and tips at the start. Shooting in Madagascar is different than other destinations I have been to and the assistance in getting started was appreciated. I appreciated the fact that Dale, while taking shots, got us in position first before “firing”. That doesn’t always happen with guides, especially when there is a special moment. Thanks again for an introduction to the wildlife of a very unique and challenging country. I’m sure most first time travelers to Madagascar don’t have such a rewarding photo experience!”

    “I want to reiterate Sue’s comments about the extraordinary quality of our Pantanal experience.  Having Dale and as our mentor on this trip made it just outstanding.  Accommodations were also excellent, especially the houseboat. Just to reemphasize: Dale’s photographic expertise and teaching skills were outstanding, matched with naturalist’s skills and a great rapport with all of the personnel and staff we encountered at the various venues.  Our friends and co-tourists on the trip were equally impressed, and we are still drinking caiparinhas and savoring wonderful memories.”

The Ostrich Derby

South Africa is a dramatic blend of cultures and stunning landscapes, forming a veritable smorgasbord of flavors for all five senses. It has two oceans, the finest of wines, a fascinating history and an optimistic future. And to top it all off, South Africa also has more ostriches than any other country on earth. Now…

Primitive Art

It is December the 23rd and I am thinking of a roast turkey with cranberry sauce and a steaming pile of delicious Brussels sprouts. Outside, through the frosted window pane is a world of the purest white, while inside, amongst the stacks of pillows, exists warmth, homely comforts and soft familiarity. Christmas presents lie stacked…

Ants in my Pants

A sharp sting to my earlobe was the first indication that something had gone horribly wrong with my plan. Evidently I had underestimated the size of mesh covering my face while simultaneously overestimating the quality of the bee suite. The ants were supposed to be on the outside whilst I was supposed to be safe…

Bungee jump

As a naturalist freelance writer in Costa Rica I usually have a wonderfully, as they say, tranquilo lifestyle. I amble through forests checking out birds, monkeys and fascinating insects, or else I get to trek through the peaceful hills in search of the ideal serene and beautiful vacation destination. Sometimes I break a sweat (such…
