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 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.
