This 14-day Kenya photo safari will begin in Nairobi with a 1-night stopover. Our photo safari representative will meet you at the airport arrivals hall.

On the following morning, you will be collected and head off to your first destination, Tsavo West National Park.

The more scenic of the two Tsavo National Parks, Tsavo West is famous for its Shetani Lava flow, Mzima Springs and stunning scenery including views of Mount Kilimanjaro from Roaring Rocks and Poachers Lookout. This park is quiet, beautiful and authentic African wilderness. The savannah ecosystem comprises of open grasslands, scrublands, Acacia woodlands, belts of riverine vegetation and rocky ridges.

After a 3 night stay in Tsavo West, you will continue on to Kenya's Amboseli National Park, famous for its large elephant herds and the majestic backdrop of the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro.

Amboseli is perhaps the best place in Africa to get a variety of African Elephant photographs. Big herds emerge in the mornings to cross wide open spaces on their way to the swamps where they feed during most of the day.

After 3 nights at Amboseli National Park, you will fly via Nairobi to the gem of Kenya's wildlife reserves, the Maasai Mara. Gentle rolling hills, open savanna grassland, thickets, and the famous Mara River are some of the scenery highlights you will encounter in the Masai Mara Reserve. Covering 1500 square kilometres (560 square miles), this is a fantastic location to finish off your photo safari. You will spend 6 days photographing in the Mara in search of its famous Lions & Cheetahs, great birdlife and stunning scenery.

At the end of your stay in the Mara, you will fly the 45 min flight back to Nairobi where you will have a day room to freshen up before you depart for the airport to take your International flight home.

This is an exclusive small-group photographic safari with a maximum of 3 participants in 1 private vehicle. This will offer you plenty of space for equipment and guaranteed access to both sides of the photo safari vehicle.

Mamai Karesi will be your guide for the duration of the wildlife photography tour.

You will have a good chance to see and photograph the following animals:

Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Hippo, Black Rhino, Spotted Hyena, Jackal, Bat-Eared Fox, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Thompson's Gazelle, Grant's Gazelle, Olive Baboon, Vervet Monkey, Coke's Hartebeest, Fringe Eared Oryx, Lesser Kudu, Gerenuk, and an excellent variety of birdlife.

Testimonials Thank you again Stu for your trip report of our Botswana trip. It has been very useful to me as I go through my photographs and try to identify the birds especially. It has also given me ideas on how to treat some of my photographs of similar subjects, Also a big thank you in general for the technique guidance you have give me this year and for your fantastic decisions about anticipating animal behavior. My resulting photographs are largely due to your help and to travelling with you. You have had a significant impact on the quality of my photographs and I am very appreciative. Looking forward to hearing about your Tsavo trip. Regards

Testimonials As a return customer I can't recommend enough the experience of these trips as well as photographic opportunities that surpass all expectations.  In addition I have now visited the reptile centre, as part of the extension, twice. Both times I have been delighted with the skill and expertise of the rangers there.  The opportunities set up for photography are exceptional and that coupled with Stu's masterclass in close up and macro provides a day to remember.  If you get the opportunity to do the extension, take it as it's worth every minute.
