Kenya Photographic Safari

Kenya Photo safari

It will be unfair to mention Kenya’s amazing safari and forget that Kenya is a photographic country. With many movies and documentaries performed in Kenya, it is no wonder the photo safari is the best in Kenya. So SET YOUR CAMERA ready and capture the necessary. With many places of interest, you will leave Kenya with your memory and beautiful photos.

GOOD PHOTOGRAPHIC LOCATION

Kenya Safari Trips offers photo safaris in Kenya and Tanzania that include the professional instruction and location selection needed to create images beyond your highest expectations. For example, you can easily capture an image that relays the close relationship between a mother elephant and her calf in Amboseli with Kilimanjaro in the background, the big cats in Masai Mara with great migration in the environment, the white rhinos in Lake Nakuru with the million pink flamingos on the ground and much more.

PHOTO EXPLORING SAFARI 

Start your journey in Kenya by speaking with our Kenya safari trips tour expert about your photo exploration of all Kenya offers. Most photographers understand that the equipment does not make the picture. Instead, it is the vision of the photographer. Therefore, a technically-sound image can be less appealing than one technically imperfect yet exquisitely representing the photographer’s vision.

Our guides take you to the finest locations that offer ample subject matter and potential composition. Our photo tour guide also enlightens you about specific considerations, such as foreground, background, mid-ground, light, framing, and design.

THE STORY BEHIND YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY
We teach you how to use various settings on your camera to enhance the story behind your photography, including auto-tracking, panning, long exposures, night shots with flash and ambient light, and macro and natural framing.

THREE LEVELS OF PHOTO SAFARI
Kenya safari trips offer three levels of photo safaris that take a new photographer to high heights and make as professional photos as any other photography. All our Kenya, Africa photo safaris are designed to give you a progressive level of instruction, but we can tailor these trips to meet your personal needs.

After being met at the airport in Nairobi, drive to the Fairview Hotel. It is a country hotel in the city, offering friendly service, good food, and comfortable accommodation within 5 acres of luxuriant tranquil gardens. Its 1930s architecture is expressed in Nairobi blue stone and countless arched windows.
OVERNIGHT: FAIRVIEW HOTEL, NAIROBI

Leaving Nairobi, set off on safari, driving north past the massive peaks of Mount Kenya to the Ark. Stop first for lunch at the Aberdare Country Club. In the late afternoon, go up to Campsite. Set in a large grassy meadow in the thick forest, it is a trendy place for the game, all of which come for the water and salt and to wallow in the mud. At night powerful floodlights illuminate the scene allowing one to watch the activities of elephants, rhinos, and buffalo in addition to bushbuck, giant forest hog, bushpig, and smaller nocturnal creatures. By day one may see colobus monkeys high in the treetops. Hyrax and bushbabies cry at night, and occasionally the bark of a leopard is heard.
OVERNIGHT AT THE ARK LODGE, ABERDARE FOREST

Drive further north to Sarova Lodge in Shaba National Park. This is a natural oasis in the middle of some arid country, but it has a fair amount of game as there are freshwater springs in the park, so the round comes to drink. Also, the Ewaso Nyiro river flows through Shaba Reserve. While here, you will have a chance to see elephants, lions, cheetahs, crocodiles, and many plains game, including Grevy zebra, reticulated giraffe, waterbuck, grant gazelle, oryx, and warthog. The bird life is fantastic too—accommodation at Campsite. It is in large stone-built rooms overlooking the river, and there is a fabulous swimming pool.

Day 5 :
SAMBURU

Morning and afternoon safari

Kenya is renowned for its beauty and diversity, not only of the wildlife but also of the tribes and the incredible scenery. In Sabuk, you can experience this bigger picture of Africa, the perfect getaway for adults and children. Explore the vast expanses of Northern Kenya on foot and camel, a remarkable beast of burden. Notice the tiny flowers nestled in the grass, the basking lizards on lichen-coated rocks, and the striking people still proud of their traditional lifestyle and dress. Start the day with a good breakfast and break for a delicious lunch in camp. Finally, dinner under the stars.

The remote mountains of Northern Kenya, rising high above semi-desert country, are dense with forest. Driving west through this fabulous scenery, the land finally drops away into the Great Rift Valley and Lake Baringo. The lake can be explored by boat, approaching within a few feet of hippopotami and crocodiles. The tented camp on its island in the middle is wonderfully picturesque. It is high up beside the swimming pool. One can look down over the entire lake and hundreds of square miles of open country stretching away to distant mountains. The spectacular Lake Bogoria to the south teems with half a million birds, a pink sheen of flamingo on the water with a backdrop of high cliffs and steam from the many hot springs.
TWO NIGHTS AT ISLAND CAMP, LAKE BARINGO

Visit the bird sanctuary

Built in 1920 by Lord Francis Scott, a prominent early settler, this house is one of the country's grandest examples of colonial architecture. It is set in the middle of a five thousand-acre farm, high up on the slopes of Londiani Mountain, a forest and bamboo-shrouded volcano, a few miles from Lake Nakuru. Accommodating up to ten people, the food is excellent, with homegrown vegetables, and the magnificent gardens boast a croquet lawn and tennis court. There are horses here; the farm and the mountain provide more than adequate countryside to explore.
OVERNIGHT DELORAINE HOUSE,
RIFT VALLEY

Day 11 :
Masai mara

Leaving mid-morning and taking a picnic lunch, drive from here through the beautiful tea plantations of Kericho to the Masai plains of Western Kenya. From July to November, the area is usually host to hordes of migrating wildebeest, and the chance of seeing a big cat in action is good. At any time of the year, the odd blood-thirsty scene with lions springing from cover or cheetahs running down their prey may be witnessed, but this violence gives way to tranquil views of endless herds; buffalo, topi, zebra, and gazelle too. Impossibly tall giraffes gaze down curiously through their long eyelashes. Masai with their cattle looks on. Motor vehicles bring one close to the game, and evening walks are filled with sounds and smells of Africa and snorting impala and scampering baboons. Rekero, situated close to the Mara, is a small exclusive camp. The meals are wholesome farmhouse fare, and the friendly, capable staff will look after you.
