I'm thinking to go to Africa next year (April) for 2 or 3 months to do some wildlife photography and I'm not sure which country to go to ???
I'm considering Kenya and Tanzania but I don't want to go to the very busy place where there are couple of giraffes and 200 photographers.
and how's it about the prices where's cheaper to go??? I don't mind to go to different country where's less tourists/photographers and the same wildlife.

If you are going for 2-3 months, why not got to both. lol.
Cant help you there as I've only been in the south and west of Africa.
Lucky you!This is it
We went to Kenya with a Kenyan firm who knew we wanted to take photos. We had a bus to ourselves and a driver who was prepared to wait for the shot with the engine turned off. There were other tourists but he managed to avoid tham for the majority of the time.
I don't know how you'd get on unescorted as it's not encouraged for very sound reasons. I would be inclined to do both.
I'll pm you a link
I can't pm you as you have the option turned off. Not sure if it's OK to post a link to a commercial concern, if it's removed and you're interested pm me.
I have been to Africa twice - not being keen on crowds I visited Namibia and more recently, Zambia. In Zambia the South Luangwa National Park is fantastic, you can also do walking safaris there. Definitely no crowds!
If you're doing self drive, South Africa or Namibia might be a better bet. Alternatively you should be able to hire a safari vehicle privately from some lodges, at around £100-200 per day over the normal rate.
I've been to Kenya and can recommend it, sure you do see other tourist safari landrovers etc occasionally but it's hardly the M25. My sister lives there so we just drove down from where she lives. We then found a Masai tribesman whilst driving around the Mara who was happy to show us the best places to find the wildlife and only for a few shillings each day. Nairobi National park is also pretty good as is Giraffe Manor if you really want to up close and personal with a Giraffe.
thank you guys
Would really recommend South Africa. We went to a lodge in the middle of nowhere (Motswari) Timbavati Provate Game Reserve alongside the Kruger National Park and the rangers went out of their way to get you lined up for shots. Big 5 virtually every day. Most of the Rangers are photographers too and always looking for the "National Geographic" shots themselves!
Check out African Nature Adventure website.
I would say entire Africa is a best destination for wildlife enthusiasts or photographer. I have been to both south and Eastern Africa and enjoyed a lot. Safari in Kenya is undoubtedly an ideal safari destination in eastern Africa, this is because of there vast concentration of game reserves and beautiful landscapes and is known to have numerous opportunities for adventures. Hope this help.
