Mara crossing by Elliot Neep
Kenya needs little introduction! Few wildlife destinations generate as much hype as this East African nation and in particular the annual Wildebeest Migration has ensured that Kenya is world famous. However as a result of recent terrorist activities, Kenya is now languishing with a reputation as an “unsafe” destination, but its vital to realise that these threats are limited to the big cities and northern coastal areas close to Somalia. Kenya’s classic safari areas are still safe and far removed from any instability.
Our ORYX Photography - Best of the Mara Migration Safari is designed to coincide with the peak migration time, when literally hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra cross the Mara River from Tanzania in an attempt to reach the fertile plains of the Masai Mara. This image by Elliott Neep encapsulates this madness, as a thronging mass of animals gather before summing up the courage to make the perilous crossing. Crushing numbers of animals; steep, slippery river banks; fast-flowing water; enormous crocodiles as well as big cats hidden in the vegetation nearby all conspire to make this a risky affair!
The Mara’s predator show is legendary, and it is certainly one of the best sites on earth for Cheetah, Lion, Leopard and a host of smaller predators! Although the Mara is the main attraction, our Lewa Plains Extension is the proverbial cherry on the top. The dry, semi-arid plains and woodlands with the backdrop of Mount Kenya provide a different suite of animals, with dry country specialities including the hefty Grevy’s Zebra, handsome Reticulated Giraffe, and excellent opportunities for Black and White Rhino round off our Kenya photographic adventure.
We invite you to join professional photographic tour leader Elliott Neep on our 2015 Best of the Mara Migration Safari – 01st to 08th October, and Lewa Plains Extension – 08th to 11th October, and experience for yourself the unbeatable photographic opportunities that Kenya has to offer.
