A one week safari in Kenya designed especially for photographers, staying seven nights in Kenya’s finest wildlife area, the Mara ecosystem.
The safari spends time in two exclusive wildlife conservancies in the Mara eco-system: Ol Kinyei Conservancy and Olare Motorogi Conservancy as well as in the Maasai Mara Reserve.
The Maasai Mara is like no other place in Africa; the density of wildlife in the Maasai Mara is a photographer’s dream. The safaris will concentrate on the migrating wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, antelope, hippo, elephant, and of course the Maasai Mara’s famous big cats. We might even see a lion kill, a cheetah chase, or a black rhino. All in all, these safaris produce life-long memories and the images often framed by the Mara’s famous sunrises, sunsets, and dramatic vistas.
What you could see on the 7 Days Masai Mara Safari
Pick up from Airport or Place of Residence in Nairobi at 7:00am, Your safari takes you to the Maasai Mara Reserve and into the domain of the Maasai, Kenya’s cattle-herding nomads determined to preserve their traditions. The Mara is magnificent, home to Kenya’s richest concentration of wildlife, and regarded by many travelers as an essential stop on any tour of Africa. When westerners think of Africa and safari, this is place they imagine – golden grassland plains pocked with acacia, wildebeests, zebras, lions, and jackals bound by together by the cycle of life and death. Three days here will only scratch at the surface of the wonders of the Mara.
Arrival in Maasai Mara in time for lunch, after lunch embark on an evening Game drive until Late evening when you settle for dinner and overnight.
Spend the days in Maasai Mara, Kenya’s most popular game reserve where you will have the best opportunity of spotting the Big Five – lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant, Game drives are flexible, with the option of going out with picnic lunch boxes to spend entire day in the park, or you can choose to have early morning and late afternoon game drives. The trip allows off-road driving strictly for the photography vehicle mainly during the low season.

Tourists must have a valid visa to visit Kenya. Your passport must also be valid for at least six months after the date of your arrival in the country. In 2017 Kenya introduced ‘eVisa’, the electronic tourist visa, although you can still apply for a visa manually on arrival at the Nairobi or Mombasa airport in Kenya. The transition to the new scheme has taken longer than expected. This means that you can still apply for a visa on arrival at the Nairobi or Mombasa airport, or online before flying into Kenya.
Manual application for a visa on arrival in Kenya: On arrival at the Nairobi or Mombasa airport in Kenya, you will need to complete an application form and pay a fee of USD 50. The process is relatively smooth and fast-(takes only a few moments). It’s handy to carry your own pen!
In the field where you are requested to state your Kenyan address, please enter the name of the hotel/lodge where you are proceeding to spend your first night. (we shall provide the safari lodge / camp name if starting safari from the airport on arrival)
Electronic visa application for Kenya: Please use the website www.evisa.go.ke to apply for an electronic eVisa. You may pay by credit card. The visa processing fee is USD 50, and there is a service charge of USD 1. The minimum period you can apply for a Kenyan visa is three months before your travel date.
The visa application process involves uploading your passport picture along with your passport photograph. Your visa shall be issued approximately five days after you register. You shall be required to print a copy of your electronic visa, bring it with you for presentation along with your passport on arrival in Kenya. If you have any problems or enquiries related to applying for an electronic visa, please contact the Kenyan Embassy in your country / region. Other things you need to bear in mind with regard to your visa:
You shall be required to complete a landing card that will be issued to you on the plane, or at the visa desk when you enter Kenya.
You shall be required to complete an exit card, which will be provided to you in the departure terminal when leaving Kenya.
Please note that your Kenya Tourist Visa is valid for 3 months with an allowance for multiple entries. You shall use the same Visa permit if combining a Kenya / Tanzania Safari , Gorilla trekking in Rwanda or Uganda or for a beach holiday in Zanzibar
Our standard safari travel & game viewing drive vehicle is a custom designed 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep with pop up top for ease of photography during game viewing drives and sightseeing. The vehicle sits a maximum of 6 persons for guarantee window seats and access to the pop up top. View our 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep photos
We also use the pop up top Safari Minivan for both travel and game viewing drives on tour. This is a standard safari vehicle on request and comes at lesser cost. View our pop up top Safari Minivan
Both safari vehicle types are fitted with long range radios for easy communication, cooler boxes, and first aid kits.
Both Minivan and 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep are sufficiently adequate for safari tour.
The 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep has several advantages over the Safari Minivan ; this includes a higher elevation, better navigation on rough terrain, deeper reach, more comfort and brings out better the adventure essence.
No , International flight costs are not included in safari tour price.
This is due to the fact that the safari tour starts from and return to your Nairobi and Mombasa Hotels or airports.
