Gentoo penguin as if looking what a photographer is doing


“So very happy to have been able to join you! Actually – God willing – I would like to join as soon as circumstances allow.”

Maudy Hartmann-Rakers (twice Tanzania)

“Twice I did a Tanzania Photo Tour with Martin and both times I was very satisfied. Martin is substantively well familiar with the area and the wildlife. His trip is well organized and he is not only a pleasant guide/photographer but above all a pleasant companion. I can recommend anybody a photography trip with Martin van Lokven Photography.”

Nancy (twice Tanzania)

“Martin is a sympathetic, very friendly tour guide and passionate photographer, who is able to transfer his knowledge and skills to the participants. He not only has a lot of tips in the field of photography, but as a biologist he also tells a lot about the behavior of the animals.
The trip was in one word FANTASTIC! Large herds of wildebeest around Lake Ndutu and the attraction it has on the predators, made up for a unique experience. A journey without end, because the great nature of Tanzania is forever etched in my memory.”

Miranda Bennink (twice Tanzania)

“With the rain came big herds of wildebeest with their calves. Wonderful to photograph, especially when they crossed Lake Ndutu! The highly experienced driver/guides were anticipating fantastic on the behavior of the animals, while Martin very passionate and enthusiastic gave the right photographic instructions. The lions and cheetahs with their young took care of the necessary spectacle, that we could observe and photograph wonderful. We also enjoyed the other animals and birds, beautiful light, the photogenic scenery and the fine lodges.
We still enjoy after all the facets and images of this trip.”

Saskia and Edgar (Antarctic Peninsula, Botswana and Tanzania)

“It was a privilege to look around in this beautiful nature. Sometimes wonderfully, sometimes cruel. Martin was the skilled photographer who liked and was capable to share his broad knowledge and experience, while also he showed himself a committed and experienced tour guide.”

Wim Vlasblom (Alaska, Tanzania and India)

“I met Martin as a dedicated photographer; tireless in finding the best spot and viewpoints for our photos. He shares with enthusiasm his knowledge and experience so that I could raise the quality of my photos to a new level. He teaches you to look as a photographer. Moreover, he has a great knowledge of this beautiful area, the animals and plants. Beware to be fit for this tour, because you have to work ‘hard’.”
