How close can I get to the animals on my safari tour?

Getting Close To The Safari Animals

Most smaller animals and birds have what naturalists call a "flight distance". This is the minimum distance they will let you approach before they run or fly away (assuming they are aware of you). Keep this in mind as you plan your wildlife safari adventure.

Learn to determine the flight distance for each of the wildlife species on your wildlife photography tour, and you'll get more shots. Try to photograph small animals from a low camera position to accentuate their size.
