Kenya has long been Africa’s most storied safari destination. Known for its legendary wildlife and evocative landscapes, Kenya offers the photographer countless opportunities to capture iconic images of Africa. Concentrating on private reserves, we avoid the more heavily visited parks.

Our Kenya photo safari begins in Nairobi, where we transfer to The Emakoko, an atmospheric new safari lodge bordering Nairobi National Park. The Emakoko fulfils the vision of its founders, as a place where travellers can commence or complete a safari in the wildlife environment they have travelled so far to enjoy. Here, you will fall asleep to the sounds of Africa—a lion roaring or the cry of a hyena—in stark contrast to the traffic, fire engines and barking dogs that are the normal sounds of the urban night.

Transfer to the airport for our flight to Nat Hab’s Private Mobile Camp–Naboisho in the Maasai Mara. Enjoying peaceful seclusion within the private 50,000-acre Mara Naboisho Conservancy, this intimate tented camp is surrounded by scenic splendour and prolific wildlife of the Maasai Mara ecosystem without the crowds. The conservancy, established in 2011, is already making a name for itself as a top place to experience the Mara’s spectacular wildlife, and Nat Hab’s Private Mobile Camp is one of very few camps located within its bounds. Strict limits on guest numbers means unprecedented wildlife viewing without crowds, especially for the wildebeest migration that occurs in close proximity. Rich volcanic soils support a verdant landscape where we find more lion per square kilometre than anywhere in Kenya—some 100 lions live on the conservancy, including the largest pride in the Mara region. Large herds of elephant, giraffe and zebra are at home here. We make the most of our unrivalled access to this setting, with endless opportunities for wildlife photography. In addition to daily wildlife drives, we enjoy guided bush walks, wilderness picnics, off-road safaris and night drives in search of nocturnal wildlife. (B)(L)(D)

We stay at Nat Hab’s Migration Base Camp–Maasai Mara, our luxury mobile camp that provides access to an exclusive campsite near the Mara River where wildebeest cross during the migration. Deluxe canvas tents are situated in a private and secluded spot, with plenty of trees to offer shade from the midday heat. Located in a wildlife hotspot, the site also provides easy access to the rest of the reserve, including the main river systems. Wildlife drives offer myriad chances to photograph prolific plains game and the predators that pursue them. Not only will we be in close proximity to thousands of wildebeest and their zebra travelling companions, but also gazelle, impala, hartebeest, topi and giraffe. The Mara is especially famed for its lions, which we may see hunting in the early morning or evening, or resting under acacia trees in the heat of the day. Hyenas also roam the plains in some of the largest numbers in Africa. (B)(L)(D)
