What camera equipment should I bring for the best photography experience?

We recommend bringing a DSLR or mirrorless camera equipped with a telephoto lens (minimum 200mm) to capture distant shots without disturbing the primates. A tripod can be beneficial for stability, especially in low light conditions. Additionally, consider packing extra batteries, memory cards, and lens cleaning equipment.

Is prior wildlife photography experience required to join this tour?

While prior experience can be beneficial, it's not mandatory. Our tour is designed for both beginners and seasoned photographers. Our expert guides will provide tips and insights on-site to help you capture the best shots of the Douc Langurs.

What's the best time of year to take this tour for optimal sightings of the Red-shanked Douc Langur?

The Douc Langurs can be observed year-round in Son Tra. However, the dry season, which spans from January to August, offers clearer skies and better visibility, making it an ideal time for photography.

Are there any specific guidelines or ethical practices we need to follow while photographing the Douc Langurs?

Absolutely! The well-being of the primates is our top priority. We advise maintaining a safe distance to avoid disturbing them. Flash photography is discouraged as it can startle the animals. Our guides will provide more detailed guidelines during the tour to ensure an ethical and respectful photography experience.
