Guide: Andrew Danckwerts
Multiple Repeat Guest
Andrew Danckwerts is the best guide one could ask for. His passion, knowledge, enthusiasm, and concern for the well-being of his guests is what made me return to Africa three more times after meeting him. You won’t be disappointed—he’s a good egg”
I met Andrew at the airport and immediately knew I was in for a fun and informative week as he has that ability to be fun and professional at the same time. Throughout our week in the Mara I learnt so much and had so many laughs. From a photography point of view, everyday was an enjoyable new lesson and I went from knowing absolutely nothing to understanding more than just the basics about exposure, composition and ISO. He explained everything so simply and was always there to answer questions and get the group into some amazing positions at sightings. He is also extremely knowledgeable about the Mara and all the animals, birds and plants within. Aside from the knowledge and technical stuff, every single day was a laugh. Every game drive, every meal, his stories and laughter made this trip so special. So special that as soon as I was back home I rebooked again.
I just wanted to say a few words about Wild Eye Guide Andrew Danckwerts who I joined on a fantastic trip to the Masai Mara last November. My initial dealings with Wild Eye were through Michael who was very helpful in getting my booking sorted and reassuring me that I didn’t need to have a vast knowledge of photography in order to go on a trip with Wild Eye. Once booked I found out that the guide on my trip would be Andrew which was great, I had recently followed Andrew on Instagram and was a fan of his photography as well as viewing his stories and seeing how much fun he and his guests were having. This was a big plus and eased my concerns about not being an experienced photographer.
