The Kenya Wildlife Photography Safari can be combined with our Diani Beach Holiday.

 

 

DAY 1: ARRIVAL – NAIROBI, THE KENYAN SAFARI CAPITAL

Our Kenya Wildlife Photography Safari will start in Kenya’s tourism capital, Nairobi. We shall arrive via the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, where our Tour Leader will be ready to receive us and kick start our journey. We shall then head to our hotel in Nairobi, where we shall check in.

On this day, if we have an early arrival, we may explore local attractions around Nairobi. Otherwise, we can relax and enjoy the nice Nairobi weather from our lodge.

Night in Nairobi.

DAY 2, 3 AND 4: AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK – MIGHTY ELEPHANTS AT THE FOOTHILLS OF MT. KILIMANJARO

We shall then head South to Amboseli National Park, where the Kenya Wildlife Photography Safari adventure continues. This amazing place is regarded as one of Kenya’s Premium Parks, and is located at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The park is graced by mighty Savannah Elephants, and hosts the longest and most famous elephant research program in the entire World.

The mammals here are great indeed (including African Lions, Cheetah, Caracal, Yellow Baboon, Blue Wildebeest and Maasai Giraffe); and we shall take time to enjoy them. The local birds are great and we shall be hoping to enjoy many species; such as African Fish Eagle, Great White Pelican and Lesser Flamingo.

We shall enjoy photography game drives every morning and afternoon. We shall take a break at midday for lunch and to download photos.

Nights in Amboseli.

DAY 5 AND 6: SOLIO RANCH AND GAME RESERVE – RHINOS, RHINOS AND MORE RHINOS

On this day you will have an early departure and continue the Kenya Wildlife Photography Safari towards the Mt. Kenya region. Solio Ranch and Game Reserve will be our next photography safari destination; located within the vast Laikipia region.

Solio Ranch (45,000 acres) is an amazing savannah nestled between Mt. Kenya and Aberdare Ranges; and both mountains are clearly visible from Solio on clear days.

Solio Game Reserve, set up in 1970, is an amazing 19,000 acres allocated for the protection of rhinos. Both Black Rhinos and White Rhinos interact harmoniously in this great place. Solio ranch has the largest population of White Rhinos in the entire World. The rhinos bred here are often translocated to other conservation areas across the African continent.

The Solio rhino experience is a major highlight on our Kenya Wildlife Photography Safaris. Other mammals here include African Lion, Spotted Hyena, Common Impala, Leopard, Cheetah and Cape Buffalo. Highlight birds here include African Crowned Eagle, Grey Crowned Crane, White-bellied Bustard and Long-tailed Widowbird.

Nights at Solio.

DAY 7: SOLIO TO LAKE NAIVASHA – THE GREAT RIFT VALLEY

On this day, we shall enjoy more wildlife photography in Solio. We shall be aiming to get good photos of the species we may still need here at Solio Game Reserve.

Later, we shall drive to Lake Naivasha, at the heart of the Great Rift Valley; where our Kenya Wildlife Photography Safari continues. We shall enjoy more wildlife photography here this afternoon.

Night in Naivasha.

DAY 8, 9, 10 AND 11: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE – PREDATORS GALORE

We shall then proceed to Masai Mara National Reserve; where our Kenya Wildlife Photography Safari adventure continues.

Renowned for the annual wildebeest migration, which is often regarded as the 8th Wonder of the World, Masai Mara National Reserve is the crown of our Kenya Wildlife Photography Safaris. Considered the ultimate wildlife haven in Kenya and arguably the best photography safari destination in Africa, this reserve has a lot to offer.

We shall enjoy photography safari drives as we enjoy members of the African Big 5 (African Lion, Black Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Leopard, Savannah Elephant) to the numerous herbivores grazing the landscape in huge herds, this place is indeed amazing. We shall also track the Big Cats- Lion, Cheetah and Leopard; and much more.

Nights in Mara.

On this day, we shall enjoy an early morning game drive in Masai Mara; seeking animals we may still require for our Kenya Wildlife Photography Safari list.
