OUR DESTINATIONS

Kenya

The Maasai Mara is one of Africa’s prime safari destinations. Situated within the expansive Great Rift Valley, it boasts a diverse array of habitats which are home to the Mara’s remarkable concentration of herbivores such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, elephant and much more. This wildlife haven also serves as a corridor for one of the most spectacular animal sightings on earth – the great wildebeest migration. An astonishing 1.2 million wildebeests, 300,000 zebra, and other herds of smaller herbivores set the scene for the greatest show on earth as they begin their trek along age-old routes, moving from the southern part of Tanzania’s Serengeti Desert up and around to Masai Mara in Kenya, then back again. The curtain rises on a wildlife photographer’s dream scene, and although we can not predict the exact movement of the animals, our program runs within the right season to photograph this dramatic spectacle.

Kenya FAQs

QUESTION:What is conservation photography?

To put simply, conservation photography is photography that focuses on important conservation initiatives, such as wildlife conservation. Conservation photography can be used to tell visual stories of conservation work, as well as conservation issues, that could aid organizations and charities with their engagement. 

QUESTION:Do I need professional-quality photo equipment?

Yes! Our safari tours require you to bring your own photography equipment. Of course, you’ll need your camera, a couple of lenses, and a laptop for editing. Aside from that, it might be beneficial to bring additional equipment to our safaris to maximize the quality of your photography, depending on the specific trip you’ll be joining. Get even more useful advice from our wildlife photographer, Alan Hewitt, who recommends what to bring on a photo safari.

QUESTION:WHAT ARE THE GROUP SIZES?

This depends on the specific workshop, but we only work in small groups – the average being about 6 participants per photography workshop. This ensures a lot of individual attention from our workshop leaders, so that we can cater for people with different skill levels. It also ensures that the photography opportunities are exclusive, and that we have the personal and relaxed dynamics that come with a small group.

QUESTION:HOW GOOD DO I NEED TO BE?

Most of our photo workshops are suitable for photographers of all levels. This means that you can be a pro or an absolute beginner, and we’ll cater for your photography needs. Since our groups are small, we tailor-make the tutoring to everyone’s individual level, and make sure we cater for everyone. If workshops are more suitable for photographers of a specific level, it will be clearly indicated.

QUESTION:What to wear on an African safari?

The clothes you wear on a safari are important to think about. Keep in mind the season of the country you’re visiting when packing. Wearing long pants is beneficial to protect your legs from any scratches or bug bites that can occur when on a safari, and neutral-colored clothes are a great way to blend into your surroundings. Closed shoes are important for your comfort when walking on terrain, as well as a hat to protect yourself from the sun. 

QUESTION:Do your wildlife photography workshops cater for photographers of all levels?

Yes, absolutely! We cater to all levels and ensure that group sizes are small enough for you to get the one on one tutoring you need. We want everyone to have an incredible trip and produce fantastic images, regardless of previous experience.

QUESTION:What is a day on a Photo Safari like?

A day on a photo safari consists of going on game drives, where you’ll encounter a range of African wildlife, from elephants to big cats, and countless other species for you to photograph. Apart from game drives, you might also have the opportunity to go on walking safaris, and of course, elevate your photography skills through tutoring by an expert.
