Wildlife Photography Trips

Wildlife Photography Trips

South Texas offers the opportunity to see and view both native and exotic wildlife species, as well as an incredible variety of unique bird species. Our bird viewing outings take place in mornings and afternoons in our various songbird or raptor photo blinds that have been strategically built in locations on the ranch that offer photographers the best light opportunities possible. If you are more interested in birding than photography, these blinds are also a great place to quietly watch South Texas' unique bird species at a close distance.

Our ranch also holds an amazing density of big game species, from whitetail deer to exotic species like aoudad and nilgai, offering an African photo safari experience right here in South Texas! There are not many other places in North America that will offer you the opportunity to view and photograph this many animals and species.

On our guided wildlife photography trips, your guide will take you to different areas of the ranch where they know you will be able to see animals. If you have a specific focus on photography, they will work to put you in the right position to take amazing photos and can even help you find specific species that you are wanting to photograph.
