Our history

Wildlife photographer Vincent Gesser (www.gesser-images.com) initially formed his company, Kleber Productions Limited, to market and distribute his nature, landscape and wildlife photographs and videos to corporations, individuals and photographic agencies.

The impact of these images led a large number of clients and visitors to his exhibitions to enquire as to how they might “get onto the other side of the photographs” i.e. how could they experience the African, American or Arctic wilderness for themselves. From this demand grew the concept of personalised trips tailored to specific desires through photographic safaris and group expeditions.

Kleber Productions Limited broadened, then, to have a second branch of activity – that of a specialised tour operator: Autograph Safaris, inspired by Nature, which leveraged unique photographic resources and relationships in order to offer outstanding experiences of immersion in those regions where the company had a high level of expertise, which is to say Africa, the Americas, and the Arctic.

In 2021, following the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union, Kleber Europe SAS was formed as a French company and received all the assets, activities and expertise of Kleber Productions Limited, and its Autograph Safaris branch. Kleber Europe SAS complies with all the European and French regulations of the Travel and Holiday sector including the European Package Travel Directive. The company also benefits from the financial guaranty of A.P.S.T.
