Kenya is a highly photogenic country. The main point of interest for this safari is the prodigious wildlife that inhabits the national parks and other reserves. Landscapes are greenest in the wet season, and the sky is least hazy then too. There are various benefits to staying in private concessions or reserves, such as those on the Laikipia Plateau and abutting the Masai Mara, for devoted Kenya photography safari visitors. These private reserves are relatively expensive to visit, but they frequently have better and friendlier rangers. Additionally, because you can drive off-road and there is less other tourist traffic, you can stay longer with a good photographic subject and, usually, get much closer to it and line up better. Compared to most other subjects, wildlife photography necessitates faster and higher-magnification lenses.
A zoom lens with a maximum aperture of 300 mm and a fixed lens with an aperture of 400 mm would make the perfect pair. To reduce the chance of a camera shake, bring a beanbag. You can transport it empty to Kenya and then fill it with rice, beans, or something similar once you get there to save weight. It’s necessary to get permission before photographing colorful traditional ethnic groups like the Maasai, Samburu, and Turkana when on a photographic vacation in Kenya. Many will decline, while others will demand payment. Making plans for a paid visit to a traditional community close to the Maasai Mara or Samburu-Buffalo Springs is a good way to get pictures of people wearing traditional clothing.
Amboseli National Park in Southern Kenya is one of the world’s best places to see and photograph African Elephants. We follow the Elephants crossing majestic sceneries on their walk from the woodlands to the marshes. We will have many opportunities to photograph the Elephant’s behavior, calves playing alongside their mothers, bulls fighting, families feeding and spraying dust.
All in the amazing habitat of flat and dusty plains with scattered acacias and the backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Amboseli is also home of last big tuskers in Africa, and we try hard to find them in this vast landscape. Our camp has access to private conservancy adjacent to the park which will offer intimate encounters with the Elephants in a beautiful scenery with few other vehicles besides us.
