Kenya Photo Safari
ACP180K: Kenya Wildlife Photo Safari Adventure (12 Days)
Kenya is undoubtedly among the best locations for wildlife photography in the world. Immortalized by countless wildlife films, Kenya needs little introduction. Kenya is blessed with an abundance of spectacular wildlife and lavishly gorgeous, incredibly photogenic landscapes. Game reserves are magnificent, filled with all manner of wildlife, vibrant cultures, beautiful lakes and beaches, and sweeping vistas that seem to go on forever. More...>

Kenya's Amboseli National Park is famous for its big game, such as lions, cheetahs, baboons and large elephant herds that traverse the savannahs in search of watering holes or feeding grounds at the backdrop of the photogenic and Africa's highest mountain - Kilimanjaro. From here, the safari takees you to the Kenya's semi-arid, rugged northern region lies the Samburu Game Reserve, a small oasis that is home to many rare animals, including Grevy zebras, long-necked gerenuk antelopes, Somali ostriches and reticulated giraffes.

The highlight of this safari is the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve, widely regarded as the best game-viewing park in Kenya. The "Big Five" (lions, leopards, buffaloes, elephants and rhinos) may be spotted here, and more than a million wildebeests and zebras migrate annually to Masai Mara from the parched Serengeti plains of neighboring Tanzania. This 'Best-Seller Photo Safari' includes all these plus much more!

NB: In order to be present during the orientation and safari briefing, participants are requested to arrive in Nairobi on or before 'Day 1' of the itinerary. This allows you to meet and know other members, especially those sharing rooms, know your Tour Leader and Driver Guides as well as to learn 'Safari Do's and Don'ts.

Limited to 12 participants per departure, with only 3 people per safari jeep, this award-winning safari leaves nothing to chance showing only the most treasured wildlife parks and reserves of Kenya in comfort and style. We also avoid driving long distaces - travel by air between all the attractions minimizes the transit time and creates more time for you in the bush taking photos. *Conditions apply
ITINERARY: Kenya Wildlife Photo Safari Adventure (12 Days)

Day 1: Nairobi - Safari Park Village Hotel
Arrive into Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport today. After clearing customs you will be met and transferred to Nairobi’s famous Safari Park Hotel - a few minutes outside the Nairobi City. Conceived over 50 years ago, the Safari Park Hotel and Casino has grown from a British Army officer's retreat during the Colonial period to its current status as a world-renowned inland hotel and resort. Surrounded by sprawling 64-acre grounds, the Safari Park Hotel combines the intrigue of African architecture and art with an infrastructure on the cutting edge of technology.

Located only half an hour drive from the airport and 15minutes from downtown Nairobi, Safari Park Hotel is strategically located and the most ideal starting point for your African adventure. Shining through flourishing wild flowers and majestic trees are the welcoming smiles. Arrival at the hotel means people at your service. From the doormen to the receptionists to the guest relations' officers, the lobby staffs are there to ensure your personal needs are satisfied throughout your stay. This evening we go through the entire program with our safari tour leader and get a chance to ask safari-related questions. Dinner is on your own account. Overnight - Safari Park Hotel & Casino (B & B basis)

Days 2 + 3 + 4: Kilimanjaro & Amboseli National Park
05h00: Early morning wake up call, followed by room service tea/coffee’s at Cafe Kigwa International Restaurant. 06h00 depart for Wilson Airport to connect the scheduled flight for Amboseli airstrip to depart at 07h30 to arrive at 08h15. Met on arrival and transferred to Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge for check in. Proceed on your first, morning, game-viewing drive and photo session in the Amboseli. Lunch is followed by an afternoon photo session in search of the resident herds of elephants. The combination of salt flat and marshland provides one of the most dramatic safari setting in Africa, and the mountain makes an amazing background for photographing animals. Each day, we wake up for an early morning photo session and game drive, take a rest when the sun is hot and enjoy a further photo session in the afternoons. From your lodge you enjoy unrivalled views of Mt Kilimanjaro and Meru which can be clearly seen in the morning, particularly before 10 am. Amboseli is known for its elephant herds, amazing to watch as they stand in the marshes to keep cool, drink water and munch on vegetation. Other animals, such as zebras and wildebeests and even lions are also found here. This park is also a bird-watcher's paradise. Three (3) nights in Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 5 + 6 + 7: Northern Frontier & Samburu Game Reserve.
Breakfast at the Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge. 08h30 depart on the scheduled flight from Amboseli airstrip to Nairobi Wilson Airport to arrive at 09h00 and soon connect to Airkenya scheduled flight from Nairobi for Samburu to arrive at 10h30. Met on arrival and continue on morning photo session in the Samburu Game Reserve – the Kenya’s rugged, semi-arid of the Northern Eastern Province. This is the homeland of the nomadic Samburu people, whose culture attaches great value to tending their livestock of cattle, sheep, goats and camels as their main economic activity. Samburu is rich in species not seen in southern Kenya's more famous parks, such as Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe, kudu and gerenuk. You'll also have a good chance at spotting lions, cheetahs and the elusive leopard. The semiarid landscape is dramatic, with the rugged outcrop of Mt. Ololokwe a prominent feature. The Ewaso Ngiro River, which forms the southern boundary of the reserve, attracts many birds and is a popular watering hole for elephants. Each day, we wake up for an early morning photo session and game drive, take a rest when the sun is hot and enjoy a further photo session in the afternoons. Enjoy searching for animals native to this fascinating and beautiful area guided by your expert safari drivers, who will amaze you with their ability to spot game hiding in the bushes. Three (3) nights at Samburu Lodge (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)

Day 8 + 9 + 10 + 11: Southern Frontier, Masai Mara Game Reserve
After breakfast, transfer to the airstrip for flight to the Masai Mara National Reserve, which borders Tanzania's Serengeti National Park. The first sight of Masai Mara Game Reserve is awesome. Here we learn and see first hand the intricate web of dependency that binds the different animal species together. Each of the animals has adapted to its own niche and to the other animals that surround it. Here we see Nature at its most subtle and, sometimes, most cruel as each animal struggles to survive and reproduce. On our morning and afternoon game drives in the Masai Mara we have a very good chance of seeing all the major plains animals including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, rhino, hyena, cheetah, jackal, warthog and many species of antelope.

Five days of exciting game viewing and photography in Masai Mara Game Reserve. The vast, open grasslands of the Serengeti-Mara are home to over 3 million large mammals. These include over 1.4 million wildebeest, which migrate in an enormous, straggling herd each year between the southern part of the Serengeti to the northern part and back again. With them move other herbivores such as gazelles and zebra, also looking for the best grass. Along the way they provide food for big predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs.

Every year, between June and September, millions of wildebeests and zebras migrate into the Mara in search of water. The timing of this phenomenon varies, depending on the rains, but they usually start heading back to the Serengeti in October. Whether you see the migration or not, the Mara almost guarantees you'll enjoy a magnificent time in Kenya. Here among the grassy plains and lush landscape, you'll find a huge variety of game, the largest in Kenya, including lions, cheetahs, buffalo and abundant bird life such as ostriches, cranes and storks. Other activities include visits to a Masai Village for an in-depth look at this colorful and pastoral people in their natural setting (From $25, Optional).

NB: We stay at Four (4) Nights at 2 different lodges in Masai Mara to optimize game viewing; 2 Nights at Keekorok Lodge in the Eastern Corridor and 2 Nights at Mara Serena Lodge on the Western Corridor. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)

Day 12: Back to Nairobi, Departure
After breakfast enjoy your last photo session and game drive before checking out of your rooms. Transfer to the airstrip for your flight back to Nairobi, Kenya's colourful capital city, scheduled at 11h00. A sumptuous barbeque lunch waits for you at the famous Nairobi Carnivore Restaurant where we also share the Kenya memories with the other photographers. Carnivore Experience is also described as 'Meat Eaters Paradise' and is the Africa's Greatest Eating Experence! If your flight departs this evening, you may opt to take a day room to rest at city hotel at small fee. Your tour leader will advise you on cost and availability. Later, we transfer you to the Airport for your onward arrangements. AfriChoice! airport representative will re-confirm your onward flight, and assist you at check-in.
This marks the end of this exciting and educative Kenya Photo Safari!
