Beautiful photos! I've been to Tiger Canyons (2015) and loved the shots I took there. On that trip, we paid the premium to have JV guide for us. I have a group that wants to go there in 2017 and I'm trying to better understand what the experience is like if you don't have JV leading the game drives. Did you use JV or other rangers? Any comments on what I am considering?

I went with Squiver. There were 6 of us and 3 vehicles, so on each game drive there were 2 photographers per vehicle such that each photographer had a row of seats to themselves and could shoot from either side of the vehicle. JV drove one of the jeeps and the two rangers the other jeeps. Marsel and Daniella (from Squiver) sat in the front row with the two rangers. We rotated jeeps each game drive.

This worked really well. I found both of the rangers to be excellent and both Marsel and Daniella have been there many, many times before so know the ropes. I don't think the experience will be in any way diminished if the rangers drive instead of JV. If anything, you may have more flexibility over positioning the vehicle because neither of the rangers photograph or film (unlike JV).

Thanks so much. I don't want to decrease the quality of the shoot, but this does save a good bit of money for the group.
