Shoot to thrill … don’t shoot to kill

What is a Photo Safari? Traditionally there have always been two types of safari…hunting and photographic….and we at Pangolin Photo Safaris would rather “shoot to thrill” than shoot to kill!

It was an activity designed for the hardcore enthusiast and limited to owning specialist gear. But when digital cameras became mainstream, and more affordable, all of that changed.
