The adage ‘A picture speaks a thousand words’ is one we embrace at Escape + Explore. Every trip we lead is designed to challenge our guests positively. Whether out on a SUP board watching penguins gliding past, tasting an exquisitely crafted wine with a winemaker or, learning about the rule of thirds on our Cape Peninsula photography tour. The stretching of the mind and the growth that follows is where the experience comes alive for our guests.   

Integral to our ethos of providing tours that unlock once-in-a-lifetime moments for our clients is the principle of collaboration.

Designing tours of a particular quality requires the meeting of minds. The latest example of this is our newly developed photography tours in Cape Town. We’ve teamed up with the experts in the field of teaching folks how to capture the very best images while on safari, Pangolin Photo Safaris. We believe photography is not a niche activity. Our Explorer Guides have been trained by best-in-class photo guides to deliver engaging guided tours in the Cape with a photography slant. And, we provide the gear! The Canon DSLR cameras we use on our tours are for the active urban explorer- just like our trips. The hardware is light-weight and despite their intuitive technology is easy as pie to operate. Fun fact: we’ve not had one single camera dropped to date. Phew!

Suddenly, the prospect of dragging teenagers around the most southern tip of Africa becomes an appealing one. They’ll have something to do! Unlocking an incredible experience is about finding common ground. We understand that excellence begins with relevance. Natural by-products of our expertly planned, guided photography tours are that parents relax and for the younger ones, boredom is banished. This results in the fun factor rising exponentially, along with the ratio of real smiles per trip. This trip will take you to all the places you’ll want to visit while you’re in Cape Town. Uniquely, our route is designed to chase the sun, harnessing the ‘magic light’. As every photographer knows this intangible quality has the power to transform a good picture into an exceptional one.

At the end of your trip, before returning the DSLR camera to your Explorer Guide, remember to take the memory card out. It’s yours to keep, with our compliments. Frame the pictures, share them with your friends and family.  Once home, don’t forget to revisit them often to remind you of the carefree, spirited moments you shared with us in the Cape.
