The Pantanal is also home to some of the most remarkable wildlife on the continent including giant otters and colorful macaws. Our base will be a comfortable floating hotel anchored in the heart of jaguar country. Frans and Chris will share their knowledge of South America and its wildlife, and Frans will provide photographic guidance.

Zambia’s wild rivers—the Zambezi and the Luangwa—are magnets for wildlife and they are the prime destinations for an exclusive new African safari designed by Frans and Chris. They know Zambia well from assignments they produced for National Geographic (download it here), and they will channel their expertise for a safari experience that includes opportunities to observe hippos and crocodiles eye-to-eye from hides, and to photograph the classic wildlife of the African bush—from lions, leopards, and elephants, to buffalo, giraffe, and elusive wild dogs.

Summer, 2025

We are developing a new trip to the spectacular west coast of Greenland, an epic landscape of towering icebergs, steep fjords, and rolling tundra. But Greenland and the high Arctic are warming twice as fast as the global average and the massive ice cap is melting fast. This trip is designed to give you a chance to witness what is happening in the most dramatic, yet accessible, region in the high Arctic. This expeditionary voyage will be primarily boat-based, with opportunities to cruise among the mountainous icebergs calving off the fastest moving glacier in the world. Contact us to be informed about this unique journey.
