This 9-day wildlife photography safari will begin in Nairobi with a 1-night stopover. A short flight from Nairobi on the following day will take you to the heart of the famous Maasai Mara Reserve. 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 experience real Africa on this photographic tour in Kenya.

This is the time of the Great Migration and the rolling hills are covered with 1000's of migrating Wildebeest and Zebra, which have come to the Mara to enjoy the bountiful grass it has to offer.

You will be staying inside the reserve not far from the major crossing points, allowing you quick access to these photographic hotspots.

You will spend 8 days focusing our efforts and time on capturing the incredible spectacle that is "The Great Migration". Your small tented camp is well situated right in the middle of the main reserve. Each day will be spent looking out for opportunities to photograph dramatic river crossings, exciting predator encounters, and the wonderful variety of birdlife.

The photographic tour will end at Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi, Kenya.

This is an exclusive small-group photo safari with a maximum of 6 participants in 3 private vehicles (2 participants per vehicle). You will have plenty of space for equipment and guaranteed access to both sides of the safari vehicle.

During the migration season, it is not uncommon to sit for hours at a time waiting for the Wildebeest to cross the Mara River. You will take packed food in the vehicles to enable you to remain in the field for as long as it takes.

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, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Thompson's Gazelle, Grant's Gazelle, Olive Baboon, Vervet Monkey, Coke's Hartebeest, and an excellent variety of birdlife.

Testimonials Dear Wild4,  Very many thanks to all of you Stu, Ann, John, & Justyna - for a wonderful trip. We really enjoyed our two weeks with you - the organisation was superb, the food was excellent and the guiding and photographic advice from you. Stu, was invaluable. I am sure that without your expertise we would never have seen as many animals or got as many images as we did. Several photographic friends have already contacted us to enquire how our trip went and we have highly recommended you to them. With many thanks from us both,

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
