Safari is a Swahili word, which means ‘journey’, and this is where the expression was born. Kenya offers possibly the ultimate African safari experience—wide-open plains, teeming herds of game and amazing opportunities to photograph animals. The Maasai Mara and Amboseli areas are probably the most visited on account of their extraordinary photographic opportunities, but people return time and again to explore Kenya’s other amazing destinations. There are amazing camps in Kenya, but the trick is to avoid the national park areas and very busy times if you want to stay away from the crowds.


The sight of elephants walking in front of Kilimanjaro is one of those iconic views that draw photographers to Amboseli, the second most visited park in Kenya.


The grasslands, rivers and mountain backdrop of the Mara are a spectacularly open and rolling canvas for one of the greatest game arenas in the world.

Samburu & Laikipia

The Laikipia area is a collection of communal and private land that are now managed collectively by the Laikipia Wildlife Forum. Lion, wild dog, rhino, reticulated giraffe, aardvark and over 280 species of birds are highlights here.
