Wildlife photography safaris require adequate preparation, dedication, patience, and a reliable tour guide. Having sufficient space and proper equipment inside your vehicle is also imperative. In short, this should be a dedicated photographic safari.

Amboseli Photo Safari

East Africa’s most photographed park, Amboseli National Park, is a must-visit location for every safari photographer. It’s on the country’s border with Tanzania, on the leeward side of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro. The park’s 392 square kilometers make it relatively small, but it stands out as the second most visited. This can be attributed to its scenic landscapes and diverse wildlife – a true photographer’s paradise.   

Amboseli is a Maasai term for “salty dust,” The park lives up to its name while serving as a home for vast bird species and a host of unique wildlife. We will explore with you all the places of interest in this tiny yet popular national park. Moreover, our direct flights to the Mara will allow you to explore both parks.

Ngorongoro Crater Photo Safari

The park is surrounded by 360-degree, 1,968ft (600m) high walls, making it the world’s largest unfilled, intact caldera. Some safari photography enthusiasts consider it the continent’s version of Jurassic Park, thanks to its unmatched landscape and wildlife.
