CUSTOM photo safari KENYA MIGRATION - September 2014

Posted by Wild4 Photo Safaris on 5th Sep 2014

Here are a few photos from a bespoke photo tour to Kenya's Maasai Mara Reserve. The tour coincided with the great migration which was the focus for the trip. Luckily we had some good crossing action in the first few days which allowed us to venture out away from the river on the remaining days where we managed to photograph some of the other interesting inhabitants of the Mara.

Many thanks to our Guide - James, its always a pleasure to work with you Mr Mande !! and thanks to Andrei for coming on this private safari, it was a pleasure to shoot along side you and witness some magic during the migration in the Masai Mara !!

Enjoy some of the favourites !!

Testimonials I could not imagine a more competent and friendly company to take us on a photo safari of Kruger. This was my first visit to Africa, but I never had to worry about anything while on the Wild4 Photo safari. Everything was well planned, including the lodging, meals and "drives" into the game park. Your safari vehicle had lots of room to spread out and it was easy to get photos from both sides. The elevation of the pickup bed is well above ground, so you have the feeling of security and also a good vantage point and angle to shoot photos. I had hundreds of photo opportunities, even with my limited zoom lens and other small cameras. Our guide, Kosie was extremely knowledgeable on the wildlife, birds, trees and even had handy info on his ipad. We certainly had all the "big 5", the "ugly 7" and other categories in the bag after just a few days. We enjoyed seeing several camps and met many fine, helpful people along the way. By the way, the African coffee is excellent, and we took many enjoyable "coffee breaks" during our 10-days in the Kruger. If you want to see the animals...WILD4 Photo Safaris will definitely make that dream come true. Thanks to all. Dave Truax
