This 17-day Tanzania and Kenya small group photographic 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 photographic safari location within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This section forms the main focus of this photo 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 photographic 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 equipment and guaranteed access to both sides of the photo safari vehicle.

Stu Porter will host this African wildlife photography 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 Photographic Safari to four of the most photo productive wildlife reserves in East Africa.

Testimonials Many thanks to Wild 4 for a truly memorable trip . Stu’s guidance and photography skills provided excellent opportunities to get some great shots. His professionalism and commitment to the trip made the safari ‘special’. Having only 3 photographers per vehicle made an incredible difference. Committed time to ‘get the shot’ was very rewarding. Time to just observe animal behaviour was of great joy for me too. Watching the many elephant families in Kruger their social interactions and sometimes zany behaviour….those memories will stay forever. The accommodations and meals were excellent .Many thanks to Justyna for her wonderful help on the admin side making my booking a dream I have been on trips before but none quite so enjoyable as this one. Would I go again ? definitely yes…… spaces allowing ! Would I recommend to  friends ? A big yes to that one….. in fact I already have ! Sincere thanks again to you all

Testimonials Kruger North to South 16 days of photo safari gone off like a wink of an eye especially when it was fun and memorable. Like an aciton-packed movie, the opening scene at the Skukuza Airport reception by Wild4 Team : Stefan and Sandrine was delightful and the afternoon game drive was filled with excitements with shots of wildlife encountered as we travelled to our first camp in Satara. The numerous sightings we experienced over the next two weeks were nothing less than thrilling and of course capturing the Big 5 was fulfilling. The teamwork of Stefan and Sandrine was excellent giving the traveling photographers absolutely nothing to worry except to be trigger happy. Each day I shot approximately 1,500 images as each day bought new surprises. As a photographer I used the Sony A9 with the 2x teleconverter on the 100-400mm G Master zoom for distant & fast-moving subjects like eagles' flights, lions, leopards, rhinos and the smaller birds in flights while my Leica SL on a APO Vario Elmarit 90-280mm zoom for intermediate distance subjects like elephants, hippos, zebras, Impalas, Kudus and various animals within close quarters of the vehicle, and finally my Leica Q for the panoramic shots of landscape and daily point and shoot. A memorable trip ending with almost 4 TB of mobile hard disk storage. I will re-live my memories when I sort out the images and I look forward to my next trip with Stu on the Tanzania & Elephants of Amboseli and many other trips with Wild4.
