This 17-day Tanzania and Kenya wildlife photography safari will begin in Nairobi and take you to Kenya's Amboseli National Park, famous for its large elephant herds and the majestic backdrop of the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro.

From here we will cross through the Namanga border post into Tanzania and continue on to the beautiful Ngorongoro Crater where we will spend 2 nights. After a full day and another morning of photography, we drive towards the famous Serengeti National Park with its picturesque open grasslands, woodlands, massive granite outcrops known as "Kopjes," and its many resident animals. The Serengeti is known for good numbers of Lion, Leopard and Cheetah and is one of Africa’s most popular photo destinations.

After 3 days of photography in the Serengeti, we head for the short-grass plains of Ndutu, an amazing photo safari location within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This section forms the main focus of this photographic safari, which is to spend time amongst the mega-herds of the Great Migration. Ndutu is where these enormous herds gather during the months of February and March. It is here that they give birth to the next generation and thus complete the full migration cycle. Predators, both nomadic and resident, follow these herds, and this is one of the best areas in Africa to photograph Lion and Cheetah.

We have timed our stay to miss the big crowds that are drawn to the area during the calving season. We might not see any births, but there will be plenty of newborn baby animals around and we get to enjoy them with fewer people.

After 7 incredible photographic days at Ndutu, we stop for one night at the Arusha Coffee Lodge. This stop will allow us to catch our breath before we head back to Nairobi, arriving at around lunchtime on the following day.

In Nairobi, you will have a day room to freshen up before departing on your international flight that same evening.

This is an exclusive small-group photo safari with a maximum of 6 participants (non-photographer spouses are also welcome), in 3 private vehicles (2 participants per vehicle). This will offer you plenty of space for photographic equipment and guaranteed access to both sides of the photo safari vehicle.

Stu Porter will host the photo tour and will alternate between the vehicles each day to offer photographic tuition and guidance.

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, and an excellent variety of birdlife. The Landscapes are also stunning, especially the Ngorongoro Crater and the openness of the Serengeti dotted with Acacia Trees and Granite Outcrops.

Join us on this amazing Wildlife Photography Safari to four of the most photo productive wildlife reserves in East Africa.

Testimonials Bastian and I enjoyed the Migration photo safari very much. We realize that we have been very fortunate to see so many crossings and animals in such a short period of time. The safari was well organized, all accomondations were first class and the food certainly a nice surprise. One could not have expected such good food in the wilderness! James and Julius took good care of us and were one reason that we saw so much different and exciting wildlife. You picked a great support team for this safari! Bastian and I learned a lot of new photo techniques from you, which we will use in the future to improve our photographic results. Bastian for sure got hooked on time lapse, I'm sure he will be back in touch with you, sharing some of the work I expect he will create soon. Thanks to you and all your preparation, your guidance and support, this was a once in a life time experience. We will never forget these fantastic sights and animals and our photographs will always remind us of you and the great time we spent together. Now we have the difficult task to sort through thousands of images. One day it will be done and I hope my DVD will do justice reflecting the beauty of Masai Mara. Not an easy task but a welcomed challenge.

Testimonials Stu - just wanted to say a huge thank you to both you and Justyna for putting on such a fantastic safari tour for us. It was truly amazing! Your endless patience with me and your generosity of knowledge was very much appreciated. Thanks to your help and guidance I am now much more competent with my camera and may even have a few photos to show you, at a later date, to prove that I did listen to everything you told me! Justyna - the travel arrangements were impeccable. All flights and transfers went smoothly and without a hitch, and the accommodation was amazing - both in the camps and at the lodges. I even managed to squeeze in a swim and a massage (which I highly recommend) at the lodge in Chobe. It was a real treat! Thank you both once again for a fantastic trip and I am sure that we will meet again in the future!
