Shopping for a wildlife safari is like taking a multiple-choice exam.When you add it all up, the best safaris for the money generally are those tailored primarily for photographers.More hands-on instruction is available from the expedition leaders, many of whom are professional photographers.-Photo tours move at a slower pace. -Operators of photo tours use different modes of transportation ranging from safari vehicles and dugout canoes to helicopters and small planes. -Photo tours don't operate on an 8 a.m.-to-5 p.m. schedule.Another difference between traditional safaris and photo tours is group composition, said Court Whelan, director of Conservation Travel Programs for Natural Habitat Adventures, an ecotourism company in Boulder, Colorado.The National Geographic Society, which has shaped its reputation in large part around world-class photography, also offers world-class photo tours.Having a professional photographer along can yield great results from the unexpected.
