   | Carpathian birds and mammals: the ultimate photo trips                            BOOKING

Photography tours in the Carpathian Mountains are the specialty of Safari-photo-nature team. 

The concept its self was born following a spontaneous get together with a brown bear.

During communist period chasing animals was authorized only for Nicolae Ceausescu, his friends and visitors therefore the species weren’t put in extinction danger and they could naturally reproduce.   

Romanian Carpathians host 60% of European bears, 40% of European wolves, lynxes, wild cats, owl, royal eagles etc.

| Brown Carpathian bear - the only opportunity to photograph the greatest European bear.

The biggest trophy shot here had 612 kg. There are usually individuals who touch 400kg. Those figures are incredible knowing that a European bear has around 300kg.
