Collection and Drop off at your lodge or hotel before and after each tour. Only registered vehicles are used, and we have comprehensive insurance.

Tell us what you want to photograph or what your interests are, and we plan your tour to suit your preferences.  Unlike most tours, our time is yours and you decide when you are ready to move on from one location to the next. Our timetable is totally flexible. Photo Tours Cape Town is exclusive and our groups very small.
