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 !!

The wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm Stu shared was priceless, from identifying birds and pointing out animal behaviors, to stories about Kruger Park past, and of course, answering photography questions day in and day out. You were so patient! I really appreciated the custom photo safari vehicle and thoughtful design and extra space it afforded, and the advantage and flexibility of traveling with such a small number of people. I learnt so much, and I look forward to sorting through the images and enjoying remembering all the things we did during our busy photo safari.

It has always been a dream of mine to travel to Africa and take a photo safari. Although I am not a professional photographer, it has been a hobby of mine and I had been wanting to make the trip for many years. Last year, I went on a safari through a different agency, and was disappointed. It was too generic and commercialized. It left me unsatisfied and wanting more. After a year, I still had an urge to go back to Africa and get the experience that I felt I had missed out on. After doing some research I came upon Wild 4 African Photographic Safaris. I was excited that this time I would really get the experience I was hoping for, and it did not fail. Upon arrival at the park, I met Stu. He was extremely helpful, even months before the trip. Justyna helped me prepare and made sure I was well equipped for the safari. Before arriving, I could already tell that this would be an adventure of a lifetime. During the safari, Stu’s knowledge continued to surprise me. Not only does he know about photography, but his familiarity of the animals and their environment is unbelievable. He could spot a rhino from miles away that we would only see once he drove 5 minutes towards it. He understands the environment and how to get great shots. He never let us miss an opportunity. Stu was patient and didn’t rush us. His tips were useful and will help with all of my future photography endeavours. The Wild 4 Safari at went above and beyond all of my expectations. It really was a dream come true.
