"I just want to say thank you to both you and Dan for two plus wonderful weeks of photography, fun and friends. It was another Natural Exposures beyond first class adventure. Your planning was, as always impeccable and perfect. I enjoyed everyone's company and I'd travel with any or all of them on any trip you plan."
Joel Kleiner, New York
"On a scale of one to 10, Natural Exposures Namibia / Botswana / Zambia trip is a 15! From the world's second largest canyon to gorgeous sand dunes to an abandoned diamond town to aerial flights by either helicopter / plane or ballon over the dunes to a living desert tour which was incredible to wonderful safaris in Botswana to amazing waterfalls in Zambia - this trip has it all. The ultimate highlight of the trip is a visit to the Himba people in their authentic village. No other trip is as diverse.
The complexities of organizing this trip with many internal flights to save time shows the amazing skills of Miss Tanya. She is incredible. And Dan’s photographic skills in teaching beginners and photographers of all skill levels is second to none. If you ever wanted to visit all the diversity Africa as to offer, this trip is for you."
Fred Kurtz, Indiana
"The most diverse trip I have ever taken. From deserts to rivers, we saw it all."
Pam Cote, Kansas
"That was seriously an amazing 2 1/2 weeks. I loved every minute and 100 times more than I honestly expected. The organisation was so perfect, all the little hops so exciting, the additional Cessna and helicopter flights magical. The dunes were SO spectacular, Tommy's safari so special and to finish with wild dogs beyond my expectations.
All I can do is say 'thank you' and then to have Dan's kind remarks today shows I even learnt something even with a lightweight camera!"
Sally Bruce, Wiltshire, England
"It was one of my best trips. Dan and Tanya did an excellent job — as usual. Our guide was fantastic. The lodging was good. And there were lemurs! So many at one time, so close, so many different kinds (20 by one estimate), and so very beautiful."
Carol Clark, Washington
"Madagascar has been on my bucket list for a number of years and the recent trip exceeded all expectations--up close and personal encounters with endemic wildlife of all kinds (those lemurs give new definition to cute!) combined with the signature Natural Exposures touches: seamless logistics orchestrated with a smile and patient coaching, if needed, for photographers of every skill level."
Freddy Gamble, New York
"Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Reserve is an amazing place where birds, such as the sandhill crane, migrate during the winter. Like clockwork thousands of birds arrive in waves during sunrise to a lake. Then after a bit, thousands of birds leave the lake in waves creating incredible photographic opportunities. Then at sunset the spectacle is repeated. And speaking of sunset, one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever witnessed happened our first evening of shooting. If you like to photograph birds this is the trip for you."
Fred Kurtz, Indiana
"Tanya/Dan are a dynamic duo! There are not enough adjectives in the dictionary to cover the entire breath of their combined strengths. Fair, attention to detail, supportive of everyone’s needs, ability to get things done, did I mention down right good people, and on and on. We hope there will be a trip in the future that we could take advantage of."
Corbett Alley, Arizona
"An excellent four days of exploring Yellowstone Park at this magical time of year. We were able to see and photograph many of the residents of the Park including bison, coyotes, elk, trumpeter swans, and bald eagles. There are very few human visitors to the Park during the winter and acccess is limited which is wonderful for photographing from many of the iconic locations. My first wildlife photo trek but it will not be my last."
Tom Stewart, Ontario, Canada
"Yellowstone is truly an amazing place anytime of the year, but to be there in winter provides a special glimpse into its many dimensions. With Dan’s eye, and the Bigfoot snow coach for a touch of warmth and comfort, we had a great adventure into winter wonderland. The animals were close and really quite cooperative, and we had many places, including Old Faithful and Norris Geyser Basin, all to ourselves. Dan really does make a mean cup of hot chocolate, and Tanya’s lunches were exceptional. We traded lots of information, and best of all, we had fun!"
Holly Brown, Montana
"Winter is the perfect time to visit Yellowstone. No crowds, few vehicles, wonderful scenic landscapes covered with snow, and many animals actively trying to survive the harsh conditions. Yes, it’s cold – but if you follow Dan and Tanya’s instructions for gear you will be fine. Headed back in 2015!!!"
