The Great Migration is one of the most spectacular shows on earth. With over 1.5 million Wildebeests, 400,000 zebras and many more species following the paths of their ancestors, this remains one of the oldest and largest mammal migrations of the planet. Journey with us to the Mara and witness the crossing of the Mara River. Watch Reticulated Giraffes feed on acacia and traverse the iconic hills and plains of the Serengeti. Enjoy lions playing, teaching young and building bonds. Be in the presence of Rhinos with incredible horns– untouched, as they were meant to be. This is the place of epic memories and stunning moments that unfurl across an unfettered plain.

Logistics

Going to Africa and experiencing the epic wildlife that live there is a once in a lifetime experience and you definitely want to do it right! We will meet you at Nairobi airport and take care of everything from there!

We picked the best locations, timing, guides, and accommodations to give you that trip of a lifetime experience that you are looking for. We have structured the itinerary to maximize your time in the field, enabling you to experience life with the majestic animals that call this place home and create images under the best circumstances possible. Wild experiences and amazing memories await!

Our Lodges: After visiting many different lodges and locations, we hand-picked these particular lodges based on their proximity to our shooting locations, comfort level, security, services offered, cleanliness, as well as the various types and frequency of wildlife and nature photographic opportunities they offer. Our lodges are in the wild habitat. Enjoy a herd of zebras passing through, listen to the roar of a lion in the night, experience the heart of the Mara and the wilds of Africa.

Our vehicles – Safari Seating for the Photographer: Critical to any photography trip to Africa is the safari seating and we put this front and center. Unlike many overcrowded safari vehicles, we only have three photographers per vehicle. This is the make or break between having a great wildlife experience and one where you are climbing over others to see and make beautiful photos. You will have a full row to yourself. This gives you room for your gear and more importantly, full access to shoot out of each side of the vehicle, maximizing your photographic opportunities. You don’t ever have to worry about missing photographic opportunities because you are on the wrong side!

Our Driver Guides: We have special long-term relationships with the driver guides for our vehicles. They not only know the different locations that we will visit but also and understand the wildlife and their behaviors. In addition, they understand and know our needs as photographers and position us for the best experiences, best light and best photographs possible. All of our guides are hand-picked.

***Non-photographer spouses or partners: The memories you create and experiences you have on a trip like this are unforgettable and wonderful to share! Non-photographer spouses/partners have the option for an $895.00 discount to either share your row or ride up front with the driver on game drives. When in the front seat with the driver, they will certainly see everything and be able to photograph most things out the roof.
