Date: 10th - 20th November 2017
Kenya is the one destination most people immediately think of when it comes to safaris and African wildlife. The Masai Mara and surrounding areas provide the perfect backdrop for the big game wildlife we will be photographing on this tour.
We have two bases on this tour and we can expect the landscapes, as well as the wildlife sightings, to change between the two. Both of our bases are private camps on private game reserves. We will have exclusive use of the camps and entire reserves for the duration of our stay. Unlike photographing in the national parks, any sightings we make will be all to ourselves! Both camps are luxurious, to a very high standard and all inclusive.
We will be doing a couple of game drives per day and can expect to see nearly all of the big game African wildlife. Lions, cheetah, leopards, elephants and many more will all very likely be photographed during our time in Africa. In November, we can expect the grasses to be shorter, providing optimum views and photographic opportunities. The landscape in our two camps is fantastic and will provide simple and clean backdrops to our images.
November is considered to be the “short rains” season on the Masia Mara. This means quick downpours of heavy rain are normally proceeded by sunshine. This provides dramatic skies, and more interestingly, dramatic light to use to photograph our subjects. As well as the wildlife we will use the ever changing light to make landscape images, particularly where we can include the wildlife within a landscape. This will be the focus of the trip, not just your average wildlife portrait photography.
Both of our bush camps have fantastic guides who will lead us around the conservations for our game drives. They are highly experienced and very well trained to find us the right animals in the right light. This tour requires very little in terms of physical requirements, we will be driven around the parks with little need for walking or hiking great distances.
Please note- Places are limited due to the size of the smaller bush camps. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. We will have 6 tents in each camp, each with two beds so the accommodation is shared.
