A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Fly to Masai Mara
You’ve made your way to Nairobi. Now you are on a chartered flight to the Masai Mara. There is nothing but the wild beneath. As you float towards the endless heart of nature, a winding river appears: it is the Mara. You take stock of your gear, make sure you didn’t leave that special lens back at home. Check, check. For what you’re about to see, there is none fitter than the eye of a camera.
Comfort Away from Everything
You wake up in a bend of the Mara River, your home for the next five days. You are surrounded by the spectacle of lions, buffaloes and zebras executing their daily dance of life and death. The landscape is dotted with game from horizon to horizon. There is not a single trace of mankind around. So you begin to enrich your portfolio: lions playing lazily on the gently rolling grasslands; birds perched on the neck of a giraffe. Everywhere you look, there is a new subject for that perfect picture: the difficult part is to settle for just one at a time. Read more
As Rare as a Black Pearl
The clamour of the hippos bathing in the river accompany the other frequent guests to your camp at the Masai Mara. There is a salt lick, however, that oftentimes attracts a visitor of such prestige that a glimpse of it in the wild is a matter for celebration. What could be more precious than a black rhino stopping by to say hello? You raise your camera carefully. Take a moment before taking the shot. These moments are the gems of the adventurer’s life.
To the Serengeti It Is
You fly to Tanzania, your home for the next five days. You find your camp under a field of Tortilis trees. The gnu venture to the woodland in search of birthing spots. The plains just beyond are swelling with wildlife and movement. If the Masai Mara asked for forethought and restraint before taking a shot, the Serengeti simply says: let’s see if you can keep up! There’s action everywhere and the drama unfolds from sunrise to sunset… and well into the night, most nights.
