Lions stalking their prey, hippos wallowing in murky waters, elephants trumpeting for all to hear, gorillas lolling idly in the bamboo forests – Africa is a photographer’s dream.

In June this year you can join Richard I’Anson, Lonely Planet’s most published photographer and consultant to Lonely Planet Images (LPI) Lonely Planet’s online image library, when he joins World Expeditions as specialist guide and explores one of the world’s wildest adventure playgrounds – East Africa.

Richard I’ Anson’s photographs have graced the pages of more than 300 titles and editions of Lonely Planet travel guides as well as Lonely Planet pictorials Chasing Rickshaws, Sacred India and Rice Trails. He is also the author of Lonely Planet’s best-selling Travel Photography: A Guide to Taking Better Pictures.

World Expeditions’ circuit of East Africa allows the romantic notions of the African continent to become a reality. Participants will see an abundance of animals in the best game parks of Tanzania and Uganda. The trip also provides endless changes in landscape – trekking in search of the famous mountain gorillas. The Impenetrable Forest in Uganda offers unique opportunities to trek through wild forest lands, where paths are cleared by guides’ machetes in order to follow the fresh track of the gorillas.

East Africa will captivate the imagination and satisfy any curiosity.

On June 5th, World Expeditions’ 20-day wildlife safari, Best of East Africa, trip departs from Nairobi.
