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.

Bespoke Photographic Safari Guest Testimonials

'Hey Greg, It took three days to download and organize my 5412 files! You blew me away with your kindness, graciousness, and expertise. Okay, so now I am bit and I can't wait to go back. The wild is the only thing that makes sense and I understand what motivates you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for introducing me to your world and for sharing your experience, strength, and hope for the future of conservation.'

Nell Dickerson (USA)
'Greg, thanks so much for the outstanding private safari in the Okavango Delta. The itinerary that you developed gave us a terrific mix of magical Delta experiences, with fine camps and excellent local guides. The most important ingredient in this terrific experience, however, was you. On the photographic front, we were inspired by your commitment to artistic creativity and excellence, as well as ethical practices, in the capturing of wildlife images and greatly appreciated your graciously shared world class photographic expertise. We were delighted to find that you are also a knowledgeable naturalist, with wide-ranging expertise and engaging stories (and a voluminous reference library on your phone!) about both the fauna and the flora of Africa. We were encouraged by your commitment to conservation! We look forward eagerly to joining you in the Masai Mara next year and in the South Rift Valley!'

Mark and Bonnie Overgaard (USA)
'Since our very first contact, Greg gave me lots of advices about safari destinations and about photography. He always answered my hundreds mail (sorry Greg 😉 ) helping me to find and book the best travel for shooting hippos and to buy some photographic stuffs I have never seen before. I have known a man who really loves Africa and wildlife and most important, who knows lot of things about Africa and wildlife, but at the same time you can talk to him as you talk to one of your friend. I dont write about his knowledge of photo gears and technique as it would be superfluous. I can only say that my skill level is increased by several steps. His advices during safaris were, in my opinion, the best part of my entire time spent in Kenya. During my time spent in the bush, I really feel myself like a photographer, not like a tourist. Thank you, thank you so much!'

Nicola Cappelletti (Italy)
'We all really enjoyed our family photographic safari with you in Zambia. The Lower Zambezi is a beautiful destination and the most scenic we have seen so far. Robin and I have improved our photographic capabilities which we hopefully won't lose till we see you again😁. Thank you for the personal message in your wonderful AWE book. Have fun with your next trips and hope to see you again soon.' See the adventure on YouTube

Ute, David and Robin (Germany)
'Good morning Greg. I trust you got home safely. Thanks for being such an incomparable guide and company. See you in February, if not before (maybe October).'

Stephen and Eric Cheek (UK)
'It was such a privilege to spend a week with Greg. On all levels he is a joy to spend time in the bush with. Its really apparent through his passion, knowledge and talent why he was The Wildlife Photographer of the Year. We had some amazing sightings. From following mating leopards for 5 hours on my birthday to packs of wild dogs, cheetahs, and 19 different leopards. Oh, and two snakes! And of course, spending some time with Claire was very special to us.'

Deborah Keener Brown (USA)
'Dear Greg, the training and experience with you has been even better than we expected. You bring out the best of Africa as you teach us each day to appreciate the animals and capture the best moments with pictures. You are patient and professional and we look forward to another journey with you. Best to you, Bob 'the camera caddy' and Jacquie.'
