Kenya has a variety of vegetation types, from Savannah plains, Mountain vegetation to deserts that are all home to wildlife and over 400 bird species. The weather is great all year round; our “winters” mild and even during the rains, the sun always peaks out. This makes amazing lighting for the outdoors and breathtaking contrasts to photograph against. Simply put, Kenya is a wildlife photographer’s delight!
The secret to success as a wildlife photographer is patience and spending as much time as possible out in the field, waiting for that magical moment with your subject. This is where a camping safari becomes a better option than a lodge or hotel. Camping gives the photographer the flexibility needed to maximize on photo opportunities. One doesn’t have to worry about rushing back to the lodge because the kitchen will close, missing out on capturing that intimate moment with a lioness and her cub. Our kitchen doors do not close on you, we set an itinerary, with a time schedule, but there is that time allowance for you to spend that extra minute out there and capture your priceless shot. Our wildlife photographic safari is designed for 1 – 4pax, not having too many people on board, giving the photographer control over his movements during game drive. The aim of the safari is to maximize on time spent in the field capturing wildlife, landscape and nature. We do not allow other guests to join in the group, it is a personalized safari. The photographers will be transported in our safari spec 4WD Land Cruiser with a pop up roof hatch.
