William Cowger Photo Safaris

Oriented to all levels of photography and serious observers, wildlife and travel photographer William Cowger has introduced more than 20 groups to the wonders of the Serengeti since 2005. These 12 day on the ground photo safaris are focused on getting in the middle of the wildlife action in comfort with a full row in the car per person.
Vehicle description
Transportation in Tanzania is via specially outfitted and extended Land Cruisers that have seats for 8 in addition to the driver. We never have more than 4 people in a car so there is a row per person and always a seat for your camera gear and yourself. When on game drives, the top pops up so that all passengers can stand and have a 360 degree field of view without risking safety, and there is a hatch over the front seat so that there is a row for each of the 4 passengers / photographers. The pop-up roof also provides protection against the equatorial sun, and makes it easier to see the i...

I feel so fortunate that I had the opportunity to travel to Tanzania with my husband, my mother- and father-in law, and my mom and dad. I was born in South Africa but moved back to the US when I was little and I had always dreamed of returning to Africa to go on safari. It couldn't have been a better experience. The food was far better than I expected, the hotels w... read more

I had been wanting to visit East Africa as long as I could remember - since the days of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom!
I spent countless hours and several years online looking at hundreds of photography safaris and then I found William Cowger right in my own back yard! And what a find he was. I want to be him when I grow up! I attended a presentation that he host... read more

I have read other reviews of other travelers who went with Bill Cowger on a safari and I can concur with all that was said. I have gone on two wonderful adventures with Bill and will be joining him for my third safari in September 2015. My first one was July/Aug of 2006. It was only the 2nd or 3rd one Bill had done and I did not find one lodge, meal, drive, pers... read more

My wife and I traveled with Bill Cowger in 2006 on a 12 day expedition that we were excited about and nervous- not being "camper" type people. Boy were we pleasantly surprised to find the accommodations first first class and the photo opportunities unbelievable. When a male lion relieves himself on the tire of your van then comely walks away, you know you have see... read more

I never take pictures, I leave that to my husband.
I own only a dummy-proof bridge camera.
I went on safari with Bill Cowger.
I came back with over 3,500 pictures!

I do not regret booking with him. Apart from being a gentleman and a scholar, he runs a top of the line operation.

Tanzania is beautiful. Its people is peaceful and fun loving.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Serengeti with Bill Cowger. We had been reviewing several trips before deciding to go on this trip. We are so glad that we did. We were up and out early every morning and typically came back at dinner time. A couple of days we came back for lunch. We saw so many different animals and each time was amazing. We were even able ... read more

We researched the web thoroughly before booking this trip with Bill Cowger. We wanted a small group, one full row of seats per client, good lodging, good food and a photo-oriented experience.

We got all of that and then some! There were 7 clients, Bill Cowger himself plus two guides-drivers.
Accommodations are in 4-5 star hotels and in luxurious canvas tents. W... read more

My wife and I were really undecided as to whether we really wanted to go to Africa. We finally decided to go after attending one of Bill Cowger's presentations at our local library. As the time drew near for us to travel, our excitement was beginning to overtake us. We flew from Detroit to Amsterdam, with Bill. He gave us a lot of first hand information as to wha... read more

Bill knows the land, the animals' behavior, the best photography techniques, and the local culture. His drivers are bright and articulate, the accommodations and food excellent, and the local people warm and welcoming. Bill makes it YOUR safari, whether you're a simple point and shoot photographer like me, or if your expertise is more sophisticated.
We got much ... read more

We thoroughly investigated African photo safari companies to find a reasonably priced tour in an animal-rich area with an experienced professional photographer. We also wanted an uncrowded small group setting and first class accommodations.

We wisely selected Bill Cowger's operation, which actually exceeded our expectations. Bill's experience in 23 previous trip... read more
