The two jumping cats of Africa



This serval and caracal photo tour will take you to the beautiful Serengeti National Park in Tanzania in November, ensuring intimate encounters with these two extraordinary small cats. Both felines are able to make incredible leaps, hunting birds and rodents, a behavior we hope to see as we enjoy the privacy of Namiri Plains, an hour from the nearest camp.

Why we love this serval and caracal safari



This photo tour is designed for wild cat lovers that have already done the usual big five of Africa safari. It is ment for the passionate photographers who want to see and photograph the lesser known, yet just as charismatic smaller African felids. We know there are a lot of you passionate safari goers out there who just keep missing out on serval and caracal sightings. This tour is ment to change that.

We have picked a single beautiful lodge, Namiri Plains camp, as our only hub so we don’t waste time on transport going from one lodge to another. This camp is right in the heart of serval and caracal country with servals being spotted every three to four days and caracals being spotted about once every ten days. Though we will stop for big cat sightings, we will move on quickly to really focus on the smaller felids.

We have picked this time of year to be away from the crowds, to ensure we will have a caracal or serval to ourselves when we do spot one of these elusive cats. The grass too will be shorter at this time of year, ensuring better visibility and less obstructions for photography. We will also have the option of seeing these cats on foot as walking safaris are an option.

To get the most out of your wild cat tour, we have feline researchers come to camp to give us an insight into the ecology of the cats of the area, to understand their threats, and to realize how they fit into the ecosystem.
