I had a wonderful time with Dale, he has a great personality and really worked hard to help us get good images. He clearly cares about client satisfaction, demonstrated great patience, and did everything in his power to make everyone comfortable.
All in all, he was a great photo tour leader — and coupled with the top-notch service of your ground team, it was an enjoyable experience overall. The camp setting was also done very well — we felt like they really took great care of us and kept us safe, while not jeopardizing an authentic experience.
The trip was a challenging one given the logistics and precautions needed to go into a potentially dangerous area. But we were in great hands with Dale and his team of terrific local guides. Dale was helpful, communicative and energetic the whole time. He also deeply respects the local culture and people and brings his many years of experience as an ethnographer and animal lover to bear. His stories are also hilarious. We had one difficult traveler with us who was extremely ill but refused to leave the group – Dale managed to handle it very well under the strange circumstances. On top of it, he is an extraordinary photographer but does not get in the way of helping you make your best shots. We liked traveling with Dale so much that we have another couple of tours booked with him, that will hopefully resume after Covid.
