Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
The Serengeti National Park, meaning “endless plains” in the Maasai language, is renowned for it’s awe-inspiring wildlife and breath-taking landscapes. As one of world’s most celebrated wilderness areas, the Serengeti has been an ongoing source of inspiration for writers, filmmakers and photographers. As with Kenya’s Masai Mara, the Serengeti boasts incredible year-round wildlife, especially large prides of lion. It is from here that the seasonal annual Great Migration migrates to the Mara – affording thrilling sightings of river crossings and predator/prey interactions. The Western Corridor of the park is a photographer’s dream destination, with its beautiful landscape. This section of the Serengeti is relatively secluded, which means that guests usually have sightings to themselves and are able to spend long periods of time with a lion pride, capturing changing dynamics within the pride.
Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve is a photographer’s utopia, and is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife destinations. A land of breath-taking vistas, abundant wildlife and endless plains, the quintessential Masai Mara safari delivers many attractions, as the reserve is home to an excellent year-round concentration of game. It also plays host to the seasonal Great Migration, made up of more than two million wildebeest, zebra and other antelopes. Large herds of plains game and excellent sightings of prides of lion roam the vast terrain, and the diversity of landscape and light offer fantastic opportunities to capture scenes in creative ways. The theatre of the Masai Mara is ever changing and continuously creating new visual experiences.
