The Migration Experience 2018

Aug 10th -17th 2018 is FULL

Added! Land cruisers !! Extra night in Nairobi!

Private visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

New! Chartered plane. Fly home from the Mara to Nairobi!


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, will try and prey on them.

Come and see it for yourself! Aug 10th -17th 2018

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 19th late 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 very special bonus is the private visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife trust, meet the orphan baby elephants. Maybe even adopt one.

This is a photographic tour and not a photographic workshop, you will need to have at least intermediate 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. Not a tour for beginners.

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 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.
