Join NaturesLens to capture images of the charismatic Dalmatian Pelicans, in Greece, during the Dalmatian Pelicans of Lake Kerkini photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 5 night/6 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1399 per participant.
Since 2014, NaturesLens has been taking photographers to Lake Kerkini; in 2023, join David, one of the co-founders of NaturesLens, for a unique wildlife experience, getting up close & personal with the beautiful prehistoric bird that is the Dalmatian Pelican; capturing them on camera within their natural habitat of beautiful Lake Kerkini in northern Greece. This 5 night trip encompasses four full days spent getting to know this unique landscape, offering extensive opportunities to photograph these incredible birds, as well as neighbouring wildlife such as the Pygmy Cormorant & the majestic Greater Flamingo.
The Dalmatian Pelican is, by a small margin, the largest of the Pelican species, as well as one of the largest living bird species on earth. These magnificent birds have been in decline in recent years, partly due to habitat destruction on the part of us humans, but thankfully the population at Kerkini has prevailed & still thrives within this perfect haven.
This trip is best suited to those of you with mid-level to advanced photography skills looking for a new challenge. We pride ourselves in offering something special to clients in comparison to other trip providers, so we have coordinated this itinerary to allow you to capture these magnificent birds at sunrise & sunset.
Highlights of the trip include daily boat trips on to the lake, daily shoreline feeds offering you the chance to get up close to the Dalmatian Pelicans & witness their feeding behaviours, & cosy accommodation in a nearby hotel as an oasis from the harsh winter conditions. All the details are taken care of for you so that you can relax & enjoy this unique wildlife photography adventure.

You will be on the lake before the sun comes up to see the Pelicans at first light, & after the morning’s activities, will break for a warming lunch as a much-needed break from the cold, discussing what the rest of the day will hold. As a group you will then embark on an afternoon of further exciting photography opportunities, remaining on the shoreline of the lake through to early evening to make the most of the changing light conditions. When the day comes to an end, you will return to the comfort of the hotel to relax in front of a roaring fire, freshen up & discuss your achievements from the day.

During this 5 night photography holiday, David, one of our photography guides, will lead you throughout this photography tour, providing guidance & advice as needed & helping you develop your skills. David will help you capture images of the Dalmatian Pelicans in both wide & close up shots; capturing them in movement while feeding & fighting for fish, interacting with each other or in flight with the impressive backdrop provided by the lake & surrounding snow-capped mountains.

Our group numbers are strictly limited to allow for the highest quality experience for everyone involved, & as this photography is seasonal, we can only offer this trip to a small number of lucky individuals each year. Book early to avoid disappointment!
Photographable Species: cormorant, dalmatian pelican, flamingo

Join Pui Hang for this five-day trip which will take place in the Catalonia region in north-east Spain & will focus on that region’s most emblematic species, the Bearded Vultures (Lammergeier) & Golden Eagle.
You will have the opportunity to photograph Lammergeiers feeding on the ground & in flight, with the spectacular mountains of the Pre-Pyrenees as your backdrop. The Lammergeier is a rare & magnificent bird that is in decline throughout most of its ancient European habitats. The 90 Lammergeier territories in the French & Spanish Pyrenees represents more than 75% of the total European population of this extraordinary bird.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of Lammergeier & Golden Eagle, in Spain, during the Lammergeier & Golden Eagles of Spain photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 4 night/5 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £2199 per participant.
Using a series of hides, you will have the chance to photograph up to 20 different individuals, in their natural habitat.
In this magnificent location, the Lammergeiers are the kings of the mountain.
The hides have been designed by professional photographers to take advantage of the best light & the best backgrounds. They are located at a height of approximately 1400 m in the Pre-Pyrenees near Lleida in Catalonia. Large, one-way windows enable you to capture stunning images of the Bearded Vultures (Lammergeier) & other scavengers as they perch on the ground & in flight.
The hides can accommodate up to a maximum of three photographers. There is a chemical WC & a folding bed for those rare moments when nothing is going on. The windows can be opened from the inside & cleaned should it rain (although you should pull down the blind first in order not to scare the birds). There are also shelves & hangers for storing bags, lenses & other pieces of equipment.
Accommodation is provided in a rural hotel located just a short walking distance from the hides.
During these three days of intensive photography, it will be possible to photograph the eight different plumages presented by the Bearded Vulture & obtain images of more than 20 different individuals.
Join NaturesLens for a wildlife photography holiday you will never forget.

2022 – Wildlife of Etosha Photography Holiday

Double Occupancy for couples is available at a cost of £2499 – or £4998 per tent.
Please note: this trip is intended as an extension to the Sabi Sands Leopards photography holiday – not a fully-featured trip in its own right, you are more than welcome to join this trip, however; but, if you want a fully-featured trip to Etosha, we are running one in 2023 – all the 2023 event details are here.
NaturesLens offers keen wildlife photographers the chance to capture images of the impressive wildlife of Etosha National Park, you will be photographing the wildlife of this massive area as they thrive in their natural habitat; the waterholes offer the area’s best opportunities for both large & small game sightings.
Etosha National Park is home to some of the most common & at the same time some of the rarest wildlife species. Etosha means “place of dry water” & refers to a flat pan of about 5000 square kilometres which can be seen from space!
Join NaturesLens to capture images of Wildlife of Namibia, in Namibia, during the Wildlife of Etosha photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 5 night/6 day duration on a Full Board with Drinks Included, Non-Shared basis & costs £3150 per participant.
The massive pan, that makes up Etosha National Park, provides a stunning, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages to an area of semi-arid grassland & large camel thorn trees mixed with Mopani trees.
The park boasts numerous waterholes, including both natural springs & fountains & others fed by human-made boreholes. During the dry winters, the wildlife relies on these waterholes scattered throughout the park, so sightings are far more reliable than anywhere else in Africa. Extensive treks of zebra & springbok can be seen mingling with oryx & bathing elephants at the larger waterholes. If we are lucky, we may even see rhino, elephant & lion drinking from the same pools.
IMAGE
Four of the Big Five can be seen amongst the Wildlife of Namibia within Etosha National Park. The areas with thicker vegetation are home to elephants, black rhino & even leopard. The lions are camouflaged in the pale-golden colour of the savannah.
The fleet-footed cheetah, rare black-faced impala, hyena, jackal, bat-eared fox, warthog & giraffe are just some of the other species that can be found here.
We will stay in an intimate tented camp that is a study in contrasts. Textures such as stone, suede, linen & steel have been used to create a setting that is sleek & modern but also inherently of the earth. All the tents are situated around a busy waterhole, where the wildlife come to quench their thirst directly in front of your tent.
The surrounding nature lends itself to long lazy afternoons spent relaxing on the sofas in the lounge watching the wildlife go by. When things heat up, cool down in the sparkling rim-flow swimming pool.
With a stunning main building & just seven luxury tents with en-suite bathrooms providing private, exclusive accommodation for our guests, coupled with the warmest of hospitality, sumptuous meals & first-class guides, this is the perfect trip for photographers wishing to capture images of the wildlife of Namibia.
The activities will be a mixture of traditional safari game drives & use of their fabulous water-level hide which has been placed in front of a waterhole offering a pretty impressive viewpoint & some fantastic photography of the wildlife of Namibia that comes to visit.

You will be on the lake before the sun comes up to see the Pelicans at first light, & after the morning’s activities, will break for a warming lunch as a much-needed break from the cold, discussing what the rest of the day will hold. As a group you will then embark on an afternoon of further exciting photography opportunities, remaining on the shoreline of the lake through to early evening to make the most of the changing light conditions. When the day comes to an end, you will return to the comfort of the hotel to relax in front of a roaring fire, freshen up & discuss your achievements from the day.

During this 3 night photography holiday, David, one of our photography guides, will lead you throughout this photography tour, providing guidance & advice as needed & helping you develop your skills. David will help you capture images of the Dalmatian Pelicans in both wide & close up shots; capturing them in movement while feeding & fighting for fish, interacting with each other or in flight with the impressive backdrop provided by the lake & surrounding snow-capped mountains.

Our group numbers are strictly limited to allow for the highest quality experience for everyone involved, & as this photography is seasonal, we can only offer this trip to a small number of lucky individuals each year. Book early to avoid disappointment!
