In this article, we take an in-depth look at the experience offered by Point Reyes Safaris.
Beyond Your Wildest Expectations
Safaris tend to be ripe with photography opportunities, and Point Reyes Safaris is no exception. Their website is filled with gorgeous images of scenery and exotic wildlife. There are action shots of bobcats hunting for gophers, great horned owls nestled in the trees, and baby elephant seals lounging on the beach. These trips are not reserved for experienced photographers, either, as the guide provides indispensable suggestions for capturing the best pictures.
The keen-eyed guide of Point Reyes Safaris, Daniel Dietrich, is a well-traveled professional wildlife photographer himself, as well as a certified California Naturalist. He knows how to spot hidden gems that make for incredible photography opportunities, like sunbathing foxes, osprey showing off a fresh catch, and coyotes hidden amongst the tall grass. Daniel also keeps the safari groups small and discusses goals beforehand to ensure a personalized, intimate experience.
But you don’t need to be a photographer to enjoy what Point Reyes Safaris has to offer; it’s an experience that would appeal to any wildlife lover. The Point Reyes National Seashore, spread across 71,000 acres, is filled with abundant wildlife; over half of all North American bird species and 85 different kinds of mammals can be found in this park.
