This Kenya Photo Safari is purely based on the Great Wildebeest Migration and gives the guests a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness and photograph this amazing natural spectacle. Immortalized by award winning nature documentaries and Hollywood blockbusters alike, Kenya needs little introduction to wildlife photographers – the word “safari” is indeed synonymous with Kenya! Witness the epic migration of a million plus wildebeest and zebra making their way from Kenya to the Serengeti, running the gauntlet of lions, crocodiles, leopards and more on 7 Days Masai Mara Photo Safari ! Besides the phenomenal wildlife, one can expect to photograph some of the most breathtaking landscapes in all of Africa.
The Maasai Mara is like no other place in Africa; the density of wildlife in the Maasai Mara is a photographer’s dream. The safaris will concentrate on the migrating wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, antelope, hippo, elephant, and of course the Maasai Mara’s famous big cats. We might even see a lion kill, a cheetah chase, or a black rhino. All in all, these safaris produce life-long memories and the images often framed by the Mara’s famous sunrises, sunsets, and dramatic vistas.
You will be with your personal Safari photographic instructor throughout the entire duration of your safari. Photograph ‘The Big Five’ – Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo (and the rest of Kenya’s amazing wildlife)
Your safari guides will share their extensive knowledge of the Masai Mara wildlife, flora and fauna. To get the perfect photograph it is important to be able to study the animal and understand it’s overall behaviour, so as to perfectly position the vehicle and most importantly not to harass the animal or destroy the environment in any way possible. Over the years, having spent numerous hours closely interacting with the wildlife, they will assure you the perfect position to guarantee you that picture perfect shot.
