The Migration Experience 2019

Aug 6th - Aug 13th 2019

Land cruisers !! Chartered flights!

Only 5 spaces left

I only take 6 people.

The great wildebeest migration, is also known as one of the 7 new wonders of the world. Besides the wildebeest, we also see zebras, topi's and more follow along. All have to cross the Mara River in the Maasai Mara where crocodiles and other predators, might be waiting for them.

Are you ready to take your camera to the wild side of photography? Try our Kenya photographic safari during the migration! You will see a diverse variety of wildlife!

All tour guests will fly into Nairobi and be greeted by a meet and greet company to help you through customs and to your awaiting driver, and escorted to the hotel. We will be flying back from Maasai Mara on the last day in the afternoon, so booking a midnight flight if you don't wish to stay is advisable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will stay 5 nights in the Mara conservancy, close to the Mara river! Making it easy to be close when a crossing starts.

 

A fun visit to the Giraffe Center before doing a bit of shopping

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE
This is a photographic tour and you will need to have at some knowledge of your camera. The action goes down fast and even though I am helping with the settings, you have to know where things are on your camera.

 

Unlike some of the photographic tours run by others, we start before first light in the morning and go until the park closes at 7pm. Boxed lunches are provided! We spend the whole day looking for wildlife and scenery. Game drives can be up to 11 hours! We will using 4 wheel drive safari land cruisers with guaranteed window seats . 3 guests per jeep with 1 photographic instructor in each jeep.

I will contact either via phone or e mail to evaluate the equipment you have and if you might want to upgrade or rent to insure you get the images of a lifetime, as you are taking the trip of one!

PLEASE READ: There is no smoking while out on the game drives.

Patience is required for this tour! We sometimes sit for hours waiting on a crossing that may or may not happen. The radio for the park is on and if there is a good sighting, we can make a choice to leave to see it. Just so you know, if you leave your spot, chances are you won't get it back. So Patience, bring it with you.
