BIG CATS, KENYA
17 – 26 MARCH 2021 ( 9 NIGHTS )
In March 2021, Helena and Grant will be leading a small group photo-safari to two of Kenya’s most predator-rich wildlife conservancies, Olare Motorogi and Naboisho. Being in the conservancies allows maximum photographic freedom for going off road.
Big cats like lions, and cheetah, and other carnivores like spotted hyaena and black-backed jackal make for compelling subjects and viewing. Plains game is abundant in the form of herds of zebra, topi, wildebeest, impala and gazelle.
Elephants and giraffe can also be seen. Leopard are not common but are also seen.
We will be staying in classic safari camps, and for the most part of the safari, we will be game driving in conservancy land, where we are permitted to drive off-road in order to get the best photographic angles of our subjects. There is also generally a 5 vehicle limit at sightings in the conservancy. Within the conservancy, no park time restrictions apply.
- Maximum participants is 6 (but the trip will run with 1 leader and a minimum of 2 participants)
- Each participant has their own row in the vehicle
- Off-road driving is allowed for better photographic positioning
- The vehicles are Toyota Landcruiser 4×4 vehicles, with three rows of seats
- Extra luggage allowances to accommodate the special needs of our photographic equipment: 30-35kg (66 to 77lbs) per person
- We can also access the Mara Game Reserve if we choose to at an extra cost
