How about your own private visit to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust? You will meet the orphaned baby elephants and hear their stories.

2014  African tour group

All tour guests will fly into Nairobi and be greeted by one of the tour specialists at the airport and escorted to the hotel.

Your first full day will be spent in Nairobi , your first stop will be the giraffe center to learn about the endangered Rothchilds giraffe and interact with them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

After a quaint lunch in a garden setting, with birds and a few shops, we will head to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for a private visit with the orphan baby elephants. Guests and interact with the babies and if you choose to adopt one, $50.00 for a year will sponsor your favorite.

 

 

 

 

 

The next morning, a new adventure begins as you settle into your new home for the next 10 days , a 4 wheel drive land cruiser and guide. Each guest will have a row to themselves on the trip. I help with camera settings and move back and forth from each jeep. I only take 6 guests, 3 in each cruiser , plus myself . We head to Ol Pejeta Conservancy for the next 2 nights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ol Pejeta Conservancy boasts the largerst black rhino sancutary in E. Africa. It is also the home of the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctary.

After leaving Ol Pejeta , we head to Lake Nakuru. Located on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, and surrounded by wooded grassy land, Lake Nakuru is home to both black and white rhinos, lions, leopards, hippos and the endangered Rothchilds giraffes.

After leaving Lake Nakuru, we head to the jewel of Kenya, Maasai Mara for the next 4 days. I usually do all day game drives, with a packed lunch. You have come to visit Kenya, I hope to make the best of your time there. We will be exploring the Mara Triangle and other areas. Game viewing is world renowned here, with a chance of spotting the Big 5 !

At dinner in the evening, we chat about how the day went and about what we saw, settings, shooting and the next day. If there is time to workshop on editing, we can.

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

After 4 wondrous days in Mara, we will board a chartered plane and fly to Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is known for its large elephant herds, and views of Mount Kilimanjaro. The park is also home to over 370 bird species.

IMPORTANT NOTE
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 should be fimilar with your camera.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the last day, we will game drive in the morning before heading back to Nairobi and your flight home. I strongly recommend taking a very late evening flight out, as to not have to rush to get back to the airport. Day rooms are provided so you can freshen up before heading home.

 

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.
