Photographer Mario MorenoSouth Cape Images specializes in Wildlife Photographic Tours to various destinations in Africa and Costa Rica like Masai Mara, Amboseli Serengeti, Ndutu, Chobe, Okavango Delta and Osa Peninsula. They are conceived for small groups of photographers of all levels. We design our tours to guarantee exceptional photographic opportunities and a True Wildlife Experience. Capturing “Perfect Moments” is our goal and as an expert wildlife and landscape photographer I will make sure that you return home with the images you pursue. However, being able to indulge in the wilderness is just as important and this is why we only use exclusive lodges and mobile tented camps that guarantee seclusion away from the tourist crowds and that meet your every need when returning from your photo sessions. Non-photographer partners will enjoy our tours just as much.

Not only do we choose the right lodges and mobile camps in the right locations to guarantee a unique wildlife experience but also choose the perfect time of the year for each tour. Knowing when and where the wildebeest migration is going to take place in Africa or what park roads are impassible in Costa Rica due to rains are very important factors that we take into account when deciding on itineraries and departure dates. Obviously the nature works at it’s own pace and can be unpredictable but we will do our outmost to maximize the photographic potential of every photographic destination.

“I have dedicated the last 18 years of my life to explore the planet with wildlife and landscapes always in mind. From the great plains of the Serengeti, the floodplains of the Okavango or the harsh lands of the Kalahari to the summit of Kilimanjaro or the rainforests of Costa Rica …. I am always in search of the “Perfect Moment”. A moment where everything comes together. Light, Timing and Emotions that create a memorable and forever lasting scene ! South Cape Images Photographic Safaris has given me the opportunity to share my experience with other photographers from around the world that are as excited as I am to discover our planet’s wildlife and magical places”.
