Pangolin Launches Cape Town Photo Tours

February 3, 2014 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Pangolin Photo Safaris of Botswana has launched Cape Town Photo Tours designed to accommodate the specific photographic needs of their clients pre or post safari in this photographic paradise.
Born out of the demand for Pangolin’s clients wanting to add on a visit to Cape Town to their safari itinerary the management of 564153Pangolin struggled to find an operator who could offer exclusive tours to the most iconic photo locations, at the right time of day in a small and like minded guided group.

“Photographers have very specific needs” says marketing Director and co-owner Toby Jermyn who is based in Cape Town “and we just could’nt find a local operator who understood or could accommodate these so we decided to just launch it ourselves instead! The response so far has been amazing from tourists and locals alike. Everyone brings a camera on holiday but so often they don’t know how to use it. These tours are not designed to be a photo course in a day but at least to show clients a few hints and tips to make their images that much more engaging and interesting to see whether taken from a state of the art camera or simply their smartphone.”

The groups are kept small (12 max) and there is always a photo guide AND a driver onboard. The guide is there to teach fundamental564147 photographic techniques along the way for clients wanting to learn the basics. For more adbaced photographers not being rushed from place to place is an huge bonus and the Cape Town Photo Tours spend longer in most places than other tours to accommodate them.

Cape Town Photo Tours has recently signed a sponsorship deal with Samsung meaning that every client can have use of a fantastic Samsung NX300 Mirroless camera during the tours free of charge if required.

Currently there are three scheduled tours on offer:

Chase the Sun Peninsula Tour: Visiting the sights around the coastline (scheduled at the optimum time of the day for lighting in each location)

Township and Winelands (same day) Tour:  Visiting one of the lesser known townships and then the regions oldes wine region Constantia.

Walking Tour and Cape Malay Cookery class:  Photographing the hustle and bustle of the centre of Cape Town on foot and then preparing and eating lunch in one of the brightly coloured Bo Kaap houses.

Day trips cost from R1200 (USD$110) per person and include all transport, photo tuition, park entry fees, Samsung camera usage, lunch and refreshments.
