KENYA MIGRATION Photo Safari plus Samburu & Lake Nakuru

Here are some photos from the first WILD4 Photo Safari to Kenya during the migration season. Three locations were visited, Samburu Reserve in the dry north, Lake Nakuru to see 1000's of Flamingos and finally 7 nights in the Masai Mara to view the wildebeest crossing the Mara River.

Next years trip will be at the same time of year (Mid August) and there are only a few seats left so reserve your place now to avoid missing out on a truely magical wildlife spectacle.
