Our vision, mission, and history

Penda is the product of three people coming together with combined passions for travel, photography, and NGO work. We realised that blending these specialities would create an amazing union; one that could both offer mind-blowing photographic experiences and generate positive change at the same time.

We created Penda Photo Tours, a way through which photographers of all levels can improve their photography skills while explore some of the most stunning places on earth. Our photo tours and photography workshops offer exclusive opportunities, and are guided by experts.

We also created the Penda Trust, a charity that uses photography to generate positive change in developing countries, both on a community and a conservation level. Our projects train talented young people, support grass-roots charities by supplying them with professional images, and use photography as a tool to raise awareness about important issues.

Our company and charity are closely integrated. Penda Photo Tours pays for the main running costs of the Penda Trust, so that all funds raised can go straight to our projects. Clients on our tours and workshops will learn about our charity work and, where possible, have the opportunity to engage and contribute.

Most importantly, Penda is based on one vision; the believe that it is possible to have the photography trip of a lifetime and do something good at the same time. Join us, and find out for yourself.
