A great opportunity to observe, learn about and photograph the Big-5. Apart from this, great moments watching and photographing the African Elephants of Amboseli and the winged beauties of Lake Nakuru. You will understand the nuances of wildlife photography. How best to use the available light to create high impact images. How to posit yourself properly and wait for the right moment rather than go trigger happy. A lot of interactions on the field and off it regarding compositions and post-processing will help you to up your photography skills many notches.
This comprehensive 3-part African safari focuses on photography. We take every effort to make this a great learning experience. We wish that you will take back some great memories and relive this experience many times over for a long time. We will you to the greatest lakes, the biggest mountain ranges and let you experience the most magnificent beasts of Africa in their natural habitat. And that is what the tour of Amboseli truly will be. We promise that you’ll experience mesmerizing sunrise and sunsets over the grasslands.
Remember seeing those breathtakingly picturesque photographs and wallpapers of a herd of elephants in silhouette walking into the horizon with majestic mountains in the background? Well, that’s Amboseli for you and those mountains are part of the Kilimanjaro range in Africa. This is our first stop and it is known for its low lying swamps, rich flora and fauna and more than 400 species of birds which include water birds, pelicans, kingfishers, crakes, hammerkops and 47 types of raptors.
The second part of our tour is a trip t0 Lake Nakuru which attracts a sizable population of African fish eagles, flamingoes and Goliath herons and Verreaux’s eagles. Then we finally head to Masai Mara’s world-famous grasslands where you will get to see, feel and experience the big five (lion, elephant, rhino, leopard & cape buffalo) in their natural habitat.
