Let award-winning wildlife photographers Ernest Porter and Karen Blackwood take you on an affordable wildlife photo safari in Africa and beyond!

It’s a big world–let’s explore it!

Ernest and Karen lead each affordable wildlife photo safari ourselves, and we want you to come with us!  Join us at the best places on the planet for wildlife photography during the best times of year. During our safaris, we will personally coach you so you can take incredible photos. We’ll teach you our Wildlife Workflow in Lightroom on most of our trips, so you’ll learn to edit like a pro! Want to see examples? Visit our Gallery to see our photos of the Big 5, endangered species, gorillas, birds in flight, and more from our worldwide safaris.

You want to have the ultimate safari experience, don’t you? Our budget-friendly affordable African Big 5 safaris in South Africa, Kenya, and Tanzania search for rhino, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and lion–the Big 5, plus other wildlife including endangered species. We’ll trek Gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda, or discover ancient cultures in Egypt and Jordan. You can join us on birding safaris in Peru, Antarctica and Galapagos. How about looking for tigers in India, or Leopards and Blue Whales in Sri Lanka?  Where else do you want to go?

Who are “we” — Ernest and Karen? Check out our About Us page! Get to know us and learn why you should choose Eagle Eye Safaris for your wildlife photo safari.

Everyone is welcome, from iPhone beginners to advanced DSLR photographers to non-photographers who just want to watch the animals while the others click away. Here’s a secret…not a photographer? Want to simply enjoy watching wildlife? Photo safari vehicles are always in the best spots with the most active animals. We have the best view because we can get up close to wildlife. There’s room for you, and we welcome you! We are all on safari to watch wildlife, to relax and have fun. We all want to come away with beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime memories, whether in print or in our mind’s eye, don’t we?

Ask about our double-booking discounts!


Need help getting there? We can help you plan your trip, including where to stay before and after, and what to do if you’d like to extend your stay. We’ve even got pre-trip PDF checklists for you on our Safari Packing List & Travel Tips page!

If none of our dates work for you, or you want a private family vacation, ask about a custom safari.  We can usually create a trip that’s comparable in price to our scheduled safaris.  Let us know if you have a birthday, anniversary, or other occasion to celebrate. We LOVE making trips extra special!

Be sure to sign up for our NEWSLETTER at the bottom of the page. It’s short and sweet, sometimes offers extra discounts, and keeps you up to date on important safari news. We send it monthly, on average, and we NEVER share or sell your email address.
