All about the 9 Days-Wildlife Photography Masai Mara.

Photography tour have put together all the ingredients to make this safari your “holiday of a lifetime”. After much discussion we have decided that you will get the most time and best game viewing opportunities.

The other huge advantage is that this strategy will give our guides a much better chance of predicting the whereabouts and movements of the animals we wish to photograph.

Photographic opportunities are endless. Many species of wildlife are comfortable with the game viewing vehicles and come up close for the perfect picture.

A visit to a hospitable Masai village gives your Masai Mara safari a cultural edge. The Masai live a traditional way of life in a “Manyatta”, living in simple mud covered straw huts. With over 500 species of bird life and open scenery, the Masai Mara should definitely form part of your Kenyan safari.

We will also visit Lake Nakuru, which is a very shallow and strongly alkaline lake 39 square miles in size. It is set in a picturesque landscape of surrounding woodlands and grasslands next to the town of Nakuru.

The landscape includes areas of marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrops, stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides covered with forest on the eastern perimeter.
