Kenya Photo Tours
Immortalized by award winning nature documentaries and Hollywood blockbusters alike, Kenya needs little introduction to wildlife photographers – the name safari is indeed synonymous with Kenya!
This East African country offers the essence of an African wildlife photographic expedition, and besides the phenomenal wildlife, you can expect some of the most breathtaking landscapes in all of Africa.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve & it’s conservancies are a photographer’s haven as they are teaming with some of Africa’s most sought-after and quintessential wildlife and landscapes. As a year-round safari destination, each season has its own captivating show waiting for you!
From November to February, the Mara is dazzling green and plays host to the calving season. Various antelope, Wildebeest and Zebra give birth, whose offspring become easy prey for the vast numbers of carnivores found in the reserve. This season is dubbed Big Cat season due to the many predator and prey interactions, and combined makes for fantastic photographic opportunities. With less vehicle numbers during this “off” season, grab a front row seat as the Mara puts on a show between predator and prey – welcome to ORYX’s Life of Predators Photo Safari and Women Only Mara Photo Safari!
Considered one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles, the Great Migration sees over 1.5 million Wildebeests and thousands of Zebra and Gazelles traverse a continuous circular route from the Maasai Mara to the Serengeti National Park. River crossings are a product of the Great Migration where fierce battles with monster crocodiles are often had and carnivores sit and wait for the opportune moment. This season is when our Best of the Mara Migration Photo Safari takes place for these awe-inspiring scenes and is considered a bucket list item for many!
