11 Day Ultimate Wildlife Photographers Safari (off road license)

The perfect tour for Photographers of all levels interested in getting the best wildlife shots!

Have you ever wondered how Nat Geo Wild or a David Attenborough documentary can get such great action of the Wildlife? Filmmakers, and professional photographers that work for Nat Geo and other Wildlife TV networks like BBC, have what's called an "off-road " licence. This enables them to go anywhere at any time. The special licence enables the holders to go off-road and places no other vehicles can go. This Safari package has just that. For the 5 days in the Masai Mara (only) we have an unrestricted licence that enables us to get right up close and ahead of the crowds. You won't miss that epic shot on this tour as we get right in and follow the action.

This photographic tour also covers Kenya's brilliant Amboseli national park with breathtaking photo opportunities of Mt Kilimanjaro and Africa's largest tusk elephants. We visit the Nairobi national park with over 100 Rhinos and lots of Lions. A visit to the giraffe centre where you can film giraffes as you feed them, plus David Sheldrick Elephant orphanage. Walk on foot with Giraffe, Zebra and waterbuck in the grounds of Sopa lodge Lake Naivasha, before we head out on a boat safari for excellent hippo and birdlife photography session on Lake Naivasha. 

This trip also offers night game drives and a walking safari with the Masai warriors. 

This Safari is led by Real Masai Safari Director and wildlife photographer - Dan Galati
