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 This was my first photography trip to Africa after a lot of research. Although I spent over 30 days in Africa, my Botswana component was among the most productive and is my favorite country visited. I must say Stu and Justyna's planning and direction for our entire trip is unparalleled and can't thank them enough. Our guides were incredible and the crew that helped us were indispensable. The food during our photo safari was the best for all of the places visited including South Africa. I still don't know how Pula managed to make his wonderful cuisine with so little resources! Our camp crew, Philemon and Ghoms were delightful and truly made me feel cared for and welcome. I have learned much from Stu and only wish I could have had more time learning from him in the field. Stu made our photo safari fun by pairing us with Mark, a like minded gentleman who was a joy to photograph with and talented. The entire experience was amazing with many high quality photo opportunities and think I have captured some magical moments and truly feel enriched by the experience. Thank you so much Stu, Justyna and all involved and I will try to one day do another marvelous adventure with Wild4 African Photographic Safaris !.

Testimonials This was the second trip I have booked through Wild4 and one of the most memorable and pleasurable trips I have ever been on in my life. We were blessed with incredible sightings from a frenzy of feeding wild dog to mating black mambas. The list is endless and the memories will linger for ever in the form of some great images shot from the customised vehicles driven by expert drivers. The camps chosen were great and there was a real and genuine feeling of being a part of your surroundings. A truly African experience. Botswana certainly came up trumps when delivering us such great sightings. From the bush to the Chobe river and the specially adapted photographic boats, you could not have asked for more. I must extend an enormous thank you to you Stu, for your endless patience and professionalism in everything you did for us. Thank you. Also a big thank you to Justyna who’s meticulous planning ensured a seamless trip to and in between each of our camps and destinations. Good job!
