Africa, what a place! I’ve been more than a dozen times, and she never disappoints. If you are like me; you grew up watching Tarzan, loved the circus and the zoo, Marlin Perkins was a hero, Hatari was incredible, and you dreamt of being in Africa. I can assure you that the real thing is even more amazing than you have imagined.
Your safari will coincide with one of the wonders of the world – The Great Migration, the annual spectacle of millions of animals crossing from Tanzania into Kenya in search of food while attempting to elude the multitude of predators that also follow the herds. We will visit the stunning Amboseli National Park and if the “shy mountain” Kilimanjaro allows we’ll see vast herds of elephants along with that iconic peak. From there we continue our safari and explore the fabulous Masai Mara National Park. We’ll be looking for the Big Five (elephant, rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo) and everything in between.
Why Choose Safariguy?
Safariguy’s Experience on Safari
I’ve been on safari more times than most, and I know what to expect. I’ve also hired wonderful guides that grew up in the areas that we will be touring. Some are second or third generation guides, and there is nobody that knows the land, and it’s animals better than our guides and trackers.
I’ve also traveled to all of these camps and understand the way the operate, you’ll hit the ground running with me!
Safariguy’s Photography Experience
Most of you will be joining the safari with photography on your mind. When I am not on safari, I am teaching photography. I will be there to ensure you are making the best possible images.
I’ll make sure your settings are correct for the scene and I will be available back at camp to have a look at your images so that we can fix any problems that may have popped up.
I have hired private vehicles for our safari so that each of you will have an entire row in our open-top safari vehicle. You will have space for your gear, and your view will be clear of obstructions.
Safariguy’s Local Experience
Our lodging is on private land known in Africa as a conservancy. Staying on the conservancy is important because this will give us abilities that are not available in the national parks. For example, we can drive off road or after night, and we can go for walks in the bush.
You will be part of a private safari, we will typically be a group of six, and we don’t have to follow the lodges usual itinerary. This freedom ensures we get the best available photography and see the most unusual animals.
We are staying in a variety of ecosystems so that we will have the chance to photograph regional specialties as well as mximizing our chances to photograph allof the Big Five species.
