The essence of the experience
The Maasai Mara is one of the world’s most photogenic safari destinations and enthusiasts should not miss out on the opportunity to take their photography to another level by booking a half or full-day specialist safari in a uniquely customised photographic vehicle. The specially designed vehicle offers unobstructed views and swivel chairs that allow photographers to follow the action, as well as a personal bar and air conditioning for additional comfort. You can also choose to book a specialist photographic guide who can give you tips and hints on how to get the most out of your photographs.
The art of capturing brilliant wildlife photographs is in the sharp perception and understanding of animal behaviour. Besides startling action shots, there is also the opportunity to photograph spectacular landscapes.
An abundance of wildlife ensures you will snap prowling carnivores and foraging herbivores. The big cats, including the lion, leopard and cheetah and the famous black-maned Mara lions, are one of the highlights of the Masai Mara spectacle. There are many other diverse species, including wildebeest, topi, kongoni, Thompson’s and Grant’s gazelle, waterbuck and primates, and they all deserve a place in the photo album. The colourful bird life is also prolific, offering stunning opportunities for bird photography. These include various species of vultures, from Ruppell’s griffon to the outlandish lappet-faced vulture.
