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 Photographic Safari to four of the most photo productive wildlife reserves in East Africa.

Testimonials I have just returned from a fantastic custom safari to the Kruger with Wild4. This was my second trip in the Kruger with Wild4 and everything from start to finish was absolutely perfect. I absolutely cannot imagine doing this sort of trip there with anyone else. Things were off to a positive from way before we landed. Justyna was as helpful and patient as ever from day 1 and I must say that her suggestions were all spot on. Not only did she sort everything out for us and made it look easy (although I very much doubt it was), but the information she gave us prepared us well for the trip. As soon as we met up with Stefan after we arrived, we had nothing else to "worry" about except take pictures. He was not only great as a guide with his experience, sharp eyes, and genuine interest in wildlife becoming obvious quickly, but he was also excellent as a driver who knows what works and what doesn't photographically and was thus able to position the vehicle perfectly. It was not uncommon for one of us to just say a couple of words about what we wanted to try photographically and he'd immediatelly be on it, getting us in the perfect position while adhering to the rules and keeping the wildlife's interest as a top priority - something all members of the group I was in appreciated immensly. Thank you Stefan, Justyna, and Stu for making this trip happen for us! I look forward to being back with you guys in the future!

Testimonials When two photo trips organised by my tour operator were cancelled. I looked around and found Wild4. Justyna was extremely helpful in putting together a tailor made tour just for me. I opted for 8 nights Kruger, 2 nights Big Cats & the Reptile extension. Some emails later and all was booked and paid for. I tend to shy away from flash but as we were doing a night shoot at the Big Cat Reserve, I quickly learned a great new technique and the photographs turned out wonderful. In short, Wild4 Photographic Safaris is the one you want to book with to get the best opportunities. This is not the last time I will make use of their services. Thank you Justyna & Stu for a wonderful time.
