I had ORYX Photo safari booking for two years, both the time Dale Morris was guiding and teaching us to take the best shots. He is very creative and has lots of knowledge of wildlife behavior and local knowledge. He also teaches us in a way that is very interesting not only in photography but also post-editing. He educates us to shoot many different animals, flowers, insects, birds, and many creative sunsets and sunrise topography shots. There are very few guides that will put in 16 hours a day with guests and who doesn’t mind lying down in mud or dust to get a great photo.

Just a brief message to express our gratitude for all Oryx did in setting up this unforgettable photo tour. Dale was awesome and went out of his way to ensure Judy and I were comfortable and constantly amazed at the natural wonders we encountered. Judy was sharing her I IPhone pix on Facebook in real-time, which have been shared and re-shared by hundreds of her friends. We were so close to the animals, that she had to keep telling everyone they were from her phone camera and not her Canon Full Frame telephoto! You were correct in suggesting this tour as a first-time African adventure. Londolozi Founders Camp was spectacular, and the personnel there were outstanding. I can’t wait to start post-processing my photos and will be happy to share them with you. All the best!

Oryx’s choice of Dale Morris as our guide was pure genius. From the start, I only had one ‘small’ wish – to be placed in the best possible place with the best possible light to photograph the best possible animal behavior. Dale made all of that happen while doing it with charm, knowledge, professionalism, and wit. He just made everything fun, and in the process helped me better my photography skills. I hope to get together with Dale for other trip(s) in the future.

“We arrived home two days ago after a most incredible and wonderful trip. The highlight of our trip was the Kings Camp safari but everything was fabulous!! We really appreciate Dale for so many reasons. He was excellent in teaching us, being personable, sharing his knowledge, expertise and passion for wildlife photography.

We learnt so much. It has been busy trying to catch up after our vacation but this weekend we hope to start applying some of the ‘editing’ that Dale taught us. We would highly recommend this experience and DALE!!

An absolutely wonderful experience!! We really hope that we can do something similar in the future and would definitely be calling ORYX (and Dale).

“Andries and I would like to thank the ORYX team, especially Dale, for a memorable India tour. The tour was exceptionally well planned. The only hassle we as guests were left with was to try and get the best photo of a Tiger:- And we did, thanks to Dale’s input and expertise. We can only but highly recommend ORYX and will not think twice about using their services again in future.”

“Dale Morris was an excellent tour leader. Apart from being a very pleasant person, he also went out of his way to share his wealth of knowledge on photography with us. We started the tour with our photos looking like normal holiday snap shots, and ended up taking some pretty professional images. Thank you Dale for your patience and willingness to help us.”
