KENYA | MAASAI MARA SAFARI

Amboseli National Park, Samburu & Maasai Mara Game Reserves

 
Fulfill your dream of photographing Africa’s wildlife in all its glory.

Join us as we embark on an adventurous wildlife tour of Kenya to witness its vast fauna from some of its best National Parks. Our 13-day Kenya Wildlife Photo Safari is all set to take you on a journey through the African Savanna. Here, the sky with its changing hues is ready to blow your minds and treat your eyes with its unmatched beauty. While the far lying horizon creates a picturesque image before us, it also excites us with the subjects that range from ‘The Big Five’ to African Civets and Grey Crowned Crane, which is unique to Africa. 

For this itinerary, we have chosen National Parks which are unique in their own way. While the visit to Amboseli takes you through vast open plains and the view of Mount Kilimanjaro, Maasai Mara will enrich your experience with its huge population of lion, African leopard, cheetah, and African Bush elephant. In addition to these world-famous conservations, this wildlife adventure takes you to the off-beat destination of Samburu Game Reserve. Get to see the Samburu Special Five – Gerenuk, Beisa Oryx, Grevy’s Zebra, reticulated Giraffe, and Somali Ostrich. Although our focus will be on the rich wildebeest of Africa, you will also experience and capture the ethnic culture and traditions of its people and their lifestyle, cuisine, and livelihood. Experience this unique world on our 13-day Kenya Wildlife Photo Adventure, and take away a lifetime of memories. 

This adventure is designed not only to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light but to aid you in mentally visualizing a scene before capturing the decisive moment. Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.

 
In addition, you will become knowledgeable on how to photograph wildlife as well as survey the landscape, utilize and approach your environment, photograph people indigenous to the region and the cultural considerations and challenges of photographing in a foreign country. Our time together will include individual and group discussions, inspiring ideas, and great fun. What better place to express your creativity than in Kenya’s renowned Game Reserves.

ITINERARY

KENYA MAASAI MARA 13 DAYS

Day 1 | Nairobi

After your arrival in Nairobi*, we begin our tour with a meet-n-greet in the lobby of our hotel.. We will discuss PWA’s “10 Guiding Principles of Photography” as well as our “THE ART OF SEEING” photographic technique. Our guide will also give a few helpful tips on wildlife photography in preparation for our time together. During a group dinner, we will have informal discussions on what our guests are trying to achieve in their photography, subject matters, styles and techniques.

*Airport transfer from Jomo Kenyatta international Airport is included. (D)

Day 2 | Nairobi - Amboseli National Park

We begin our journey with an early morning flight to Amboseli National Park, driving through the scenic southern part of Kenya towards Namanga, on the Kenya-Tanzania border. We’ll arrive at our lodge just in time for lunch. After a brief rest we’ll take our first afternoon game drive in this scenic park, known for its abundant wildlife.  (B, L, D)

Day 3 & 4 | Amboseli National Park

Days 3 & 4 will be exciting, as we spend our time in Amboseli National Park. Each day we will be up before dawn so that we can experience and photograph the excellent wildlife opportunities, as well as a truly unprecedented view of the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro. After, we’ll return to our lodge for breakfast. You may opt for an additional game drive after breakfast to visit a swamp with its magnificent wildlife, or simply relax at your lodge and take in the African wilderness. In the afternoon we’ll depart for our game drives in anticipation of seeing the “BIG FIVE”.  (B, L, D)

Day 5 | Amboseli National Park - Samburu Game Reserve

After breakfast we will depart for Amboseli airstrip for our flight with Safarilink to Samburu National Reserve, connecting in Nairobi. Upon arrival we’ll transfer to our camp for check-in and lunch. After lunch, we’ll enjoy a wonderful afternoon game drive in the reserve. (B, L, D)

Day 6 & 7 | Samburu Game Reserve

On days 6 & 7, we will spend full days in Samburu National Reserve with unlimited game drives. This beautiful untouched area is known for its large herds of elephants and elusive leopards as well as northern endemic species including the Grevy zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and the beisa oryx. The Samburu people were attracted to this region because of the Ewaso Nyiro River, which provides water for their herds. (B, L, D)

Day 8 | Samburu Game Reserve - Maasai Mara Game Reserve

After breakfast we will transfer to the Samburu airstrip for our flight with Safarilink to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, often referred to as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Kenya’s wildlife reserves. Upon Arrival in Maasai Mara, we will be transferred to our camp for check-in and lunch. After lunch, we will enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Mara. (B, L, D)

Day 9-12 | Maasai Mara Game Reserve

We’ll spend the next 4 days with unlimited game drives exploring the Mara, home to the proud and traditional Maasai tribe. The Mara is more than just the most popular wildlife park in Kenya, it is the reason why so many adventurers visit Kenya, and return for a second time.

This is a classic African savanna, and the sheer density of wildlife is amazing. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers, and where prey is found, so are predators. Watered by the Mara River and its tributary the Talek, the park is compromised of 583 sq. miles (1510 sq. km) of open grassland tucked away in the south west corner of the country. In the Mara you will see an astonishing amount of wildlife, including the big cats. Here, lions are found everywhere in large prides, and we’ll often see them hunting. Cheetahs and leopards are a little harder to spot, but are still fairly common. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos also exist in large numbers.

When we’re not shooting wildlife, we’ll be exploring the Maasai culture and photographing the people, wherever possible. In the evening we celebrate with a wonderful ‘Farewell Dinner’ at our camp. (B, L, D)

Day 13 | Return to Nairobi

On our last day we head out for our last early morning game drive to further explore the reserve before we bid it farewell. After breakfast, we’ll transfer to Olkiombo Airstrip for our morning flight back to Nairobi. Upon arrival at Wilson Airport, transfer to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and bid you farewell. If your flight is not until the evening, and you’ve booked a late departure hotel room, we’ll be happy to drop you at your hotel before saying goodbye. (B)
