Wildlife Photo Tour
This company's tours primarily take place in the southwest United States, but they also offer tours in Africa as well.

The fee includes a tour bus, hotel, and meals. It does not include gratuities or airfare.
Joseph Van Os Photo Safaris
This company has been in the wildlife photography tour business since 1980. Today they offer group tours to all 7 continents. That includes a 10 night photo cruise in Antarctica for a little more than $8,000. The cruises leave from the southern most city in Argentina and the fee does not include airfare to or from there.
Although this is a cruise, you won't be spending the entire time in a boat. There are opportunities to travel on the land in groups and take photos of the wildlife. How many people do you know that can say they've been to Antarctica?
There are a lot more wildlife tours out there. These are just three examples of some of the companies out there. The tours can be very expensive, but under the leadership of an experienced guide, you're guaranteed to return home with exotic photos.
