FITNESS LEVEL Moderate; we will be viewing the monkeys in a forest in the mountains. This means there is some hiking involved on mountain trails. The last location is at an altitude around 2500 meter. You will however be able to hire a porter for your camera bag should you wish to do so.


This tour is now offered with a 1000 USD last-minute discount, which will be deducted from the full participation fee for new bookings coming in. We won’t be doing this tour again next year, so make use of this offer while you still can!

This is the world’s first wildlife photography tour in China that will bring you to three different locations to photograph three different endangered species.

So what will we photograph on this tour? We’re pretty sure the panda needs no introduction, but the other two species are completely unknown to most people: the golden snub-nosed monkey and the black snub-nosed monkey. Not only are these amazing animals übercute and extremely photogenic, they have hardly been photographed in the wild, so you’ll return with very original images. We have found two locations that are perfect to photograph these monkeys, and we will visit two different locations to photograph the pandas. If you’re a wildlife lover, then this should make your heart go as fast as Marsel’s death metal!

We have also made an online brochure for this tour with images and more information – please check it out here:

Recently, Marsel won the Grand Title in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards with his golden snub-nosed monkey image ‘The Golden Couple’, which shows that you can really get some spectacular images on this trip. Don’t miss out on this unique experience!

The wildlife tour will start just a few days after the landscape tour, so in theory both tours can be combined. Especially if you also include the Guilin extension. Over the years we have had many requests for tours that can be combined, so we have finally listened to you :-)
