Kenya’s Masai Mara
Join Alan & Kaleel in the Masai Mara Conservancies, home of the iconic ‘Big Five’ and much much more. We’ll have incredible Masai guides, luxury accommodation on an all-inclusive basis, crucial extra luggage allowances and amazing off-road vehicles.
South Africa’s Timbavati
Join Alan, as he leads a ‘Big Five’ photography safari (operated by Penda Photo Tours) in South Africa’s Timbavati, one of the incredible private reserves of South Africa’s Greater Kruger. We’ll have exclusive use of a lodge right in the middle of a private reserve!
Why a Photography Safari?
For a wildlife photographer, a ‘tourist’ safari is likely to lead to frustration rather than fulfiling a ‘bucket-list’ ambition. Normal safaris rarely cater for the needs of serious photographers and can often be tick-box exercises of trying to see as many animals as quickly as possible, often in poorly equipped vehicles while in amongst the crowds often associated with the main reserve.
Our dedicated photography safaris are exactly the opposite. We’ll spend much more time photographing the wildlife, looking for specific behaviour and action from different angles and in different light and conditions.
We’ve worked with our Masai guides for many years and they know exactly how we work and what we offer our guests. Together we can offer wildlife photographers an incredible photographic experience.
Unforgetable & Rewarding…
Thanks for a fantastic week. I learned lots (I think I’ll be the eternal student!), I saw the most beautiful and memorable sights the Mara has to offer and met new friends. Oh, and captured much of this on “film”. Thanks to you both, I appreciate a tour like this requires a lot of planning, logistics and that you’re always “on call”. It was great. For me, an unforgettable and rewarding experience. Champion! Thanks and safe travels!
