Africa Geographic Travel

Written by: Roie Galitz

As a wildlife photographer, I travel several times a year to Tanzania to photograph the wildlife and the amazing landscapes. I have witnessed many wonderful action scenes and have lots of stories to tell, along with some award-winning photos to show for it.

Wildlife has always been a passion of mine and Africa has the most amazing nature on the planet. You could say I’m addicted and that’s why I do my best to share my love and passion with as many people as possible. When I photograph wildlife, I try to get as low and as close as possible. I capture the emotions and the unique behaviour to make the strongest impact I can on the viewer.

The following video is the result of several different expeditions in Tanzania, showing some of the most extraordinary moments that I’ve witnessed. I used my professional Nikon photography gear alongside a drone for wonderful aerial shots.


However, animals often get scared at the noise of the drone above them. As I am a conservationist and the last thing I want is to harass the wildlife, I limit the fly over time to less than 10 seconds and then I leave the animals alone. This minimises the impact on the animals while still getting the footage.


I am working hard to raise awareness about the amazing continent of Africa and its wildlife. I wish to make a difference and educate people with regards to the majestic creatures that are close at heart even though they may live out of sight.
