Kenya is a photographer’s dream safari country. The ample wide spaces simply lend themselves to classic wildlife imagery. Of all the countries I regularly visit, Kenya has contributed more than any other to my online fine art wildlife galleries.
Kenya is also the official ‘home of safari’ and as such the locations, camps, food, wildlife and hospitality are all top-class, making this an ideal safari to do with the family and non-photographing partners.
Most of my ‘bespoke best of Kenya’ safaris include a leg in the famed Masai Mara. I like to position a mobile safari camp in a secluded part of the reserve where you not only avoid the crowds but also have a true ‘great plains’ experience. From there we move into a private conservancy for some of the most prolific predator photography anywhere in Africa.
The Masai Mara is undoubtedly one of Africa’s absolute wildlife meccas.
But you have to do it right.
From the great plains, your ‘bespoke best of Kenya’ itinerary stays in the south as you reposition to the southern portion of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley. Here, in the south rift, you will experience real Africa. This is the place where my memoir ‘Wilderness Dreaming‘ plays out and the place where underground photography was invented. There is now an underground hide especially built for photographers which you will photograph from. This part of Africa also offers authentic Maasai cultural photo opportunities as we join Maasai warriors herding their cattle on the floor of the rift valley, with spectacular backlighting and dust. This area is also one of the best places in Africa for aerial photography which includes flamingoes, wildlife and amazing rift valley scenery. Watch this YouTube video to get a feel for this incredible corner of Africa. See my Pink Africa gallery from this part of Kenya.
No two ‘bespoke best of Kenya’ safari itineraries are the same.
From here, you will head into elephant country to seek out a Tusker in the Chyulu Hills or to experience and photograph the incredible elephant herds of Amboseli. Watch this YouTube video. Or, you will head up country where using our very own mobile camp with boats and hides, you will enjoy the best flamingo experience on offer anywhere in the world. The next stop on your ‘bespoke best of Kenya’ safari will be in the famed Laikipia region where a private ranch offers the best rhino photography in Africa. Watch this YouTube video from a rhino safari. To finish off, you will head to the north of Kenya to photograph animals you get nowhere else in the world. Fancy a night of mobile camping on the shores of the Jade Sea? it can be arranged.
Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy’s Zebra, and gerenuk await.
Using a combination of national game reserves, private wildlife ranches, community land and exclusive concessions, we will unlock Kenya’s best kept photographic secrets. Staying in luxury boutique lodges, family-run homes and fully mobile canvas camps, you will come to understand that the very word ‘safari’ originated here.
