3 night Elephant Herds Of Mount Kilimanjaro -Amboseli extension: This is one of my most popular extensions and a 45 minute flight will take you into the heart of an exclusive private conservancy in Amboseli National Park. Here you have full access to the national park but more importantly you will enjoy our own private conservancy away from the minibus tourist vehicles. Inside the conservancy you will enjoy exclusivity and total freedom as you go about your photography. Our aim on this extension of your Kenya private safari is to photograph beautiful herds of elephants and giraffes with the base of Mount Kilimanjaro in the background. Our camp is situated below Mount Kilmanjaro, where you can enjoy the finest view of the mountain (weather permitting) of any safari camp in Africa. I work with an excellent guide in Amboseli who knows exactly what photographers want. Our private safari truck is also open sided to maximize your photographic experience. An Amboseli photo safari is the perfect end to your safari as the vista is incredible and so are the photographic opportunities.

If you are looking to make this a true bucket-list safari, we can arrange a Gorilla trekking extension.

4 night Flamingoes of Lake Bagoria extension: This extension is the perfect addition to your safari as you follow the Great Rift Valley through Kenya. 4 nights spent mobile camping on the southern shore of this incredible rift valley lake will give you the ultimate flamingo experience, like no other safari can offer. We have special permission to put a boat on the lake and between boating and helicopter flying, you will get the ultimate flamingo portfolio. The campsite we use is exclusive and one of the finest locations in Kenya, next to a clear flowing stream and set about with fig tress. This is as bespoke as it gets!
3 nights Remote North, Lake Logipi and Turkana extension: Based in the far remote north of Kenya you will fly over the most spectacular rift valley scenery. Photographing Lake Logipi which currently has the highest flamingo concentrations of any lake (around 4 million birds), will complete your incredible Pink Africa experience. 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 extension is definitely for you.
Everyone who has done the Pink Africa extensions have said that it was the best safari experience of their life!
Any one or combination of the safari extensions can be arranged to make this a safari of a lifetime.
This is extension is one of my most popular as 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 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 one of my most popular. A simple road transfer takes us to our second location to photograph the endangered northern rangeland species. Grevy’s Zebra, Gerenuk, Reticulated giraffe and striped hyena are our photographic subjects, as are breathtaking views of Mount Kenya and exceptional birdlife.
