Memorable parts? A brilliant itinerary! Tips? Local benefits? I do not feel that we reduced environmental impact or supported conservation at all. All the local people that we invited to take part in the photo shoots were offered payment although I do not feel that this was making any sustainable change. Overall rating? Truly magical experience with a spectacular photographer. (more)Nikki Biggs
