Wildlife Photo Safaris Testimonials
Touch the Wild Photographic Safaris with Paul McDougall
Unbelievable Safari. We have been so lucky and seen everything that we wanted to and more. Would recommend Touch the Wild to anyone.
Anna – Australia
Dream come true to finally get to Africa, we picked Touch the Wild and chose a safari that included Masai Mara and Samburu. Paul handled our booking from start to finish and accompanied us to provide expert photography advice. My husband was so happy to see how much his photographs had improved throughout the trip.
Debbie – Switzerland
Great safari. From start to finish, Paul and driver Sammy knew we were looking for specific images on this trip and they got us in the best places to capture those shots. We had our own vehicle and had complete control over how long we stayed at sightings, which was exactly what we wanted.
John – United Kingdom
Always wanted to go to Masai Mara. After spending ages looking at companies and safaris, we decided to go with Touch the Wild. Not the cheapest, but we liked what they offered and as keen photographers, we felt the opportunity to have Paul with us was worth it. Every evening we reviewed images and Paul gave so much time up to explain about camera settings and how we could improve. We left the trip with some brilliant images and the whole trip was amazing. Would recommend.
Dave – United Kingdom
Loved my safari. Saw so many elephants and lions. A dream come true. Very knowledgeable guides
Stephen – United Kingdom
Everything was organised to a high standard. We got everything that we expected and more. The photographic advice and the help that Paul gives is invaluable. The Touch the Wild Team are so passionate and really care about you and your images. I have been on trips before when you feel the “photographer” is only there to get their images. This is not the case with Touch the Wild. I booked a trip to Masai Mara and will be booking India for tigers next.
Kirsty – United Kingdom
Good trip. Lot’s of great sightings. Good value for money. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Azriel – Israel
We booked this trip last minute and had a budget. Paul spent hours ensuring that we got the best possible trip and exactly what we wanted. His advice on the best places to go etc was excellent. We are all photographer’s and wanted a trip where we could control where we went and spend the time we wanted with sightings. The flexibility offered on the trip was excellent and we got some great images. We will definitely be back again.
Karl – Germany
Keeping 5 keen photographer’s happy is never easy. We had 2 vehicles. Paul took turns in the vehicles and helped us with our shots. As the week went on we all had different goals of what we wanted so Paul would split the vehicles and ensure we got the best possible opportunities to get the images that we wanted. There was nothing that we didn’t see and very little that we didn’t photograph. An excellent trip which more than lived up to expectations.
Lewis – United Kingdom
Loved my trip to Masai Mara. Travelled as a lone photographer. Didn’t want tuition. Just wanted to have a guide that would get me in the best places and help me get the images that I wanted. My guide Charley certainly did this and I got some great images.
Astrid – Germany
Booked a safari with my husband. Neither of us were particularly interested in photography when we booked, I had a small basic camera, my husband a bit better one. We were just interested in seeing some animals, but after a few days and seeing Paul’s passion for photography and wildlife and seeing his images, we soon became more interested. My husband got to use one of Paul’s cameras and got some brilliant pictures. We can’t thank Paul or Touch the Wild enough for an excellent trip and after returning home and both buying better camera’s we will be back again
