Kenya Tour Extensions
What follows are 7 different extensions which dovetail beautifully with your safari, but which are only booked on a 'per request' basis. The thinking behind these extensions is simply to maximize your time in Africa as you would have flown all the way out to Africa from afar. Since you will be here already, it makes sense to stay longer. Each extension also offers totally different and unique photo opportunities. You can book one or more and any combination of the below 6 extensions:
*4 day Wild Dogs of Laikipia extension: One of the best kept secrets in Kenya is the thriving, yet different wildlife to be found on the Laikipia plateau. Laikipia is situated on the highlands of Kenya and this wild bush country, when combined with the great plains, makes this a truly remarkable safari. Laikipia is an excellent location for Grevy's Zebra and Reticulated Giraffe. A must do activity when in Laikipia is a helicopter flip over the flamingoes on Lake Bagoria which is an 'out of Africa' experience not to be missed.
*4-7 day Northern Kenya extension: This extension is the perfect addition to your safari as you follow the Great Rift Valley through Kenya. Along the way you will photograph the rift valley lakes in all their glory. Photographing flamingoes from above is an 'out of Africa' experience not to be missed. If you have a penchant to go off the beaten track then this is definitely for you. From authentic Samburu cultural experiences through to photographing the endangered northern rangeland species like Grevy's Zebra, this extension will blow you away. Gerenuk, Reticulated giraffe and striped hyena are also on offer as are breathtaking views of Mount Kenya. Everyone who has done this extension has said it was the best safari experience of their life.
*4 day Rhinos of Mount Kenya extension: Not many photographers know this but Kenya is the best place in Africa to photograph rhino. I know a secret location where you can photograph white rhino with babies as well as the elusive black rhino. We can also photograph reticulated giraffe and lion in a secret forest below the Aberdare mountain range. The birdlife is prolific and our accommodation is in Kenya's finest and most luxurious boutique lodge which has only 6 rooms. This extension is our latest addition and an absolute must. It dovetails easily with the wild dogs as we can transfer by road between locations. See a baby rhino picture story from this extension...
*6 day Tanzania Mahale Chimpanzee extension: This time of year the largest wild population of chimpanzees in the world are foraging low down making this an excellent safari extension to do. We have our own guide and trackers, so you can take your time and if you do not want to hold the group up, you can wait and rest, and then have your own chimp viewing. This highly exclusive extension is regarded among African aficionados as one of the finest safari destinations not to be missed. To get a feel for this extension watch a movie clip click here
*4-7 day Tanzania Ruaha Extension:Ruaha National Park is known as the 'connoisseur's park' and not for no good reason as it offers pure unadulterated wild bush country. You will enjoy a mobile safari that will see you experiencing and seeing parts of Ruaha that few people ever get to see. A walking safari and mobile camping experience is what this extension is all about. Ruaha is regarded as one of Africa's wildest bush parks. Ruaha has exceptional baobab trees, perfect for star trails. For this extension we have special permission to walk in Ruaha and we are guided by the best walking guide in East Africa. This Ruaha extension is booked on a private request basis only. I was privileged enough to do a portfolio for Africa Geographic magazine titled 'Beneath the Radar'. It was a 22 month project and I was based in Ruaha. I would love the opportunity to share with you one of Africa's wildest corners.
