Loongokuboma Village




Loongokuboma is a Maasai village inside the Ngorongoro conservation area in Tanzania. The village has a population of 150 people including 45 children. The kids between 4 and 7 years goes to the village school, and the ones between 8 and 14 goes to the primary school in another village located 10km away from Loongokuboma. Yes, if you are calculating the distance they walk per day, 5 days a week, your mathematics still good, they walk 20km per day, 100km per week. After the primary school with 14 to 15 years they start a very hard training before they become a real MAASAI WARRIOR.  Kimai-Laizer is the chief who takes care of the whole village. He is the son of the previous chief.

Blue Monkey

You can spot them very often at Lake Manyara in Tanzania. Not easy to photograph, as they are quite fast and never stay long for cameras. I like the eyes, very beautiful and concentrated.

The Boss...

This is what we see when you travel inside the Serengeti. The most funny thing is that they don't even care about your presence around, they are so secure and confident, in other words, the boss!

Feedback...

I am delighted with the positive feedback I have received from the group at the end of our trip. It was quite an experience to listen all of them telling their stories, talking about their fears, satisfaction and experience during the 10 days we have spent together. It was definitely an amazing expedition.

Two brothers

It's definitely an amazing animal. We were quite luck to spot two brothers under a big tree in a river bed inside Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. 

Having fun in Mto Wa Mbu

What a such good moments we have had in this village with all these kids playing around our group. By having the idea to take a selfie, we learned that they were doing this for the first time in their lives, and I was very happy to bring such a good fun to these kids in Mto Wa Mbu, Tanzania.

Recharging batteries!

A big male resting in the Serengeti plains, probably waiting the sun to go down and start what they normally do best, hunting. We all know that lioness normally does the hard job, but without protection of a big male, the pride would not survive.

Limited Edition

My passion with Africa, their countries and the wildlife that inhabits the continent began more than 40 years ago. 2011 to date were covered just over 8000 kilometers in a total of 70 days, during which I had the opportunity to portray countries such as South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Tanzania. In my next expedition that will take place in March 2015, I will return to Tanzania to portray the end of the wildebeest migration going up towards Kenya.

With the technical preparation of accumulation, study, experience and advanced equipment, the sixth expedition promises a result even more artistic and sensitive, striking work factors and which are observed by the team of Buriti - publisher operating in the printing and distribution market of prints and limited edition art photographs over twenty years, also responsible for printing and distribution of my work.

After a few years of hard work in the pursuit of excellence for the final product, the publisher chose the size 21 x 29.7 cm to produce this collection of 21 images, which will be available from 02/03/15 in two Bookstores in Sao Paulo: Livraria Cultura Arts and Culture Gallery, both on the ground floor (Avenida Paulista, 2073) and Livraria Gaudí , inside the  Instituto Cultural Tomie Ohtake (Avenida Brigadeiro Faria Lima, 201.).


The editions are printed with natural pigment ink on paper Canson Infinity Rag Photographique, 310 g / m2, 100% cotton and neutral pH. Each copy is signed and numbered by the author. The editions are limited to 75 copies and follow the mat and the authenticity certificate. Final size with mat: 29 x 37 cm.

New class...

This is my new class of 2015, great kids with a lot of appetite to learn and learn. Last Friday was our first class and I need to confess that they were just great. We still have sometime to know each other, but I have no doubt that it will go smoothly as always, and by the end of this year, I will be missing each little face as I always do.

What else can I say?

This is the sort of animal I can stay seated in front for hours and hours, just watching and adoring such a beautiful creature.  This picture was taken last March 14 in the Serengeti plains, it was two brothers stalking a prey for the early supper. 

Guess why...

Luiz Carlos Santos Jr ©
Have you ever heard about lions going up in the tree? Yes, in Tanzania they do, specially during the raining season where the soil gets too wet, main reason for them to climb trees. Let's see these boys live next month.

New program for 2015!

The wildlife project has six places for six new students willing to learn photography through wildlife and nature photography. You can get in touch with us for further details and why not get enrolled for the 2015 program.

We are quite excited with our next expedition to Africa in March, 5 photographers, 11 days and a lot of action in the plains of Serengeti. This is the opening trip to the cradle of humanity.

It is going to complete one year since I manage to click this beautiful mammal in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania, and our next expedition inside Africa will drive us straight into the same area. Our goal is to find this cheetah again and we surely know where to look it.
