2014  African tour group

Are you ready to take your camera to the wild side of photography? Try our Kenya photographic safari where we give you a diverse variety of wildlife! You will visit 4 parks during your visit. How about your own private visit to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust? You will meet the orphaned baby elephants and hear their stories. There is also a stop at the giraffe center to learn about the endangered Rothchilds giraffe and interact with them.

 

 

 

All tour guests will fly into Nairobi and be greeted by one of the tour specialists at the airport and escorted to the hotel. We will be driving back from Amboseli on April 10th and not be in Nairobi until late afternoon or early evening. If you choose to fly home on April 11th, you will need to pay for your room that night.

I have changed the schedule up and added Amboseli at the end of the tour, along with a short ride back to Nairobi and a chance to visit some curio shops.

PLEASE NOTE- There is NO smoking while on game drives. And please respect the wildlife.

 

Our first stop is Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Ol Pejeta is East Africa’s Largest Black Rhino Sanctuary, as it holds some of the highest predator densities in Kenya. (giraffe was taken outside the breakfast room at Ol Pejeta, they come to drink at the water hole close to the lodge)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During your stay on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, you can visit the black rhino, Baraka, you may feed and touch him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will stay 4 nights in the Mara Conservancy, close to the Mara river! And 2 nights in a luxury tented camp, and in Ol Pejeta, the watering hole is close to the camp. You will see wildlife all day and night from your luxury tent.

IMPORTANT NOTE Please read this!!!
This is a photographic tour and not a workshop, you will need to have some intermediate knowledge of how to operate your camera. Even though I am helping with the settings, you have to know where some things are on your camera. We have 2 land cruisers and 2 instructors, so someone will always be there to help, but if you have no experience with the camera, you might get frustrated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your fitness level should be that you can carry you own camera gear and be able to walk to your room or tent. We do, at times, spend long hours out photographing the wildlife. It can be warm.
