Photo Safari

11 days hike to Mount Roraima

Come hone your photographic technique and improve your visualization, while exploring a fascinating place.

Accompanied by the photographer Peter Feibert, you will travel through the unique landscape of the Gran Sabana. Hiking on the savannah, from where the tepuis emerge, swimming in rivers and enjoying waterfalls, passing through indian villages, you will walk up Mount Roraima, to 2,700m (8,100ft) above sea level.

The top of a tepui is an incomparable experience: the rock formations resemble sculptures; the flora is made up mostly of orchids and bromeliads, many endemic; the weather and the light change frequently; in other words, you will get to know an inspiring place, bringing back with you the best images, made by yourself.

The focus of this trip is photography. That means the photographic opportunities will be explored to the utmost, allowing plenty of time for the group´s members to practice their technique and improve their visualization. The activities and the rhythm of the trip will be dictated by the photographic opportunities, such as the sunrises and sunsets; the moon; the flora in macro; the rock formations; the weather. On the tepuis the scene changes continuously, due to their exquisite weather, which allows for more experimentation. When not photographing we will be discussing techniques, nature photography and related issues. At night we will review and comment the images of the day on a computer.
