KENYA MIGRATION PHOTO SAFARI sept 2013

The Kenya migration photo safari has just ended and all locations visited provided some wonderful photo opportunities.

This safari still offers the best variety in both species and habitat diversity out of the safaris that we do and the last stop in the Masai Mara provided us with a good migration experience with a total of 5 river crossings, good lion, cheetah and leopard and much more.

Our first stop was Samburu Reserve where we encountered the usual suspects such as Gerenuk, Reticulated Giraffe, Beisa Oryx and the beautiful Vulturine Guinea fowl.

Next stop was lake Nakuru which is now very flooded so apart from the usual sightings of White and Black Rhino as well as a striped Hyaena, we decided to spend the day at Lake Bogoria where there were good numbers of Flamingos.

Finally on to the Masai Mara for the migration. We were lucky to have a good crossing on the first day which is always a relief as it opens up time to go and look for the famous cheetah and Lions of the Mara, both of which we saw a lot of and spent many hours photographing.

Many thanks to our guides, James, Julius and Silas who worked extremely hard to find us animals and drive us around these beautiful east african parks, we all appreciated your tireless energy on the long days out with us photographers.

Here are some photos from the trip - enjoy...

the 2014 migration photo safari has limited spaces left so if you are interested then please enquire soon.

Warm regards from the Wild4 team.
