WILD4 Photo Safari to Kenya August 2011, SAMBURU, LAKE NAKURU and the MASAI MARA

This years Kenya migration photo safari proved to be very productive and the three locations visited all offered a great variety of different opportunities and photographs.

Kenya's SAMBURU reserve was our first stop where we spent 4 nights and captured some of the more unique species found in Kenya.

Then it was a 2 night stay at LAKE NAKURU where the flamingos and pelicans provided great entertainment as well as a great Black Rhino and Rothschild giraffe sighting.

Finally we hit the MASAI MARA for the final 8 nights, in search of the famous river crossings. Our second day served up a crossing to remember, close to 2 hrs of wildbeest contstantly crossing the Mara river provided more than enough opportunities for both stills and video.

Other sightings in the Mara were plentiful, great sunsets, lion cubs, leopard and cheetah, elephant and the other Mara residents rounded off a fantastic trip.

A short movie trailer of each location is found below, before the photos from that location.

Enjoy . . .

Kind regards
