Steve Winter led his first trip with NWS, a jaguar photography safari in Brazil, in August 2018. Based in the vast Pantanal wetlands, Steve provided hands-on guidance to our guests and delivered some fascinating lectures on his previous work. "Inside the Hidden World of Jaguars", a story which appears in the December 2017 edition of National Geographic, features photos shot by Steve on location in Brazil, at the locations visited on this safari.
2019 saw Steve take the helm of one of our Svalbard Polar Bear Explorer departures, but big cats will be back on the menu in 2020. First up in February will be Kenya's famous Masai Mara, home to abundant lion, leopard and cheetah populations (not to mention a host of other iconic African species). March will then see Steve head to India in search of the Bengal tiger, which shares its territory with leopards, sloth bears and jackals, among other wildlife. You can find more information on both of these exciting trips below.
