Places to note when on a Kenyan photography safari

A Kenya safari holiday is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Many travellers each year visit Kenya to immerse themselves in the fantastic East African culture and view spectacular wildlife in their natural habitat. Kenya is home to the famous 'big five' animals as well as diverse plant, insect and bird species. Kenya safaris give travellers the chance to completely immerse themselves in a different culture. Unlike many other holidays away, you will be living amongst the natives and the local culture.

Kenya safaris are also a must do trip for avid photographers. The diversity of wildlife in Kenya is unparalleled and there are some fabulous opportunities for photographers to get some challenging shots and refine their skills. Although many know about the magnificent wildlife in Kenya, many are not aware of the sheer beauty of the country's landscape. Almost anywhere you go in Kenya there are awe inspiring views that are heaven for keen photographers. Many safaris also begin very early in the morning to get the best views. This is ideal for photographers as they are able to get the best light and stunning sunrise shots.

When you are on a photography safari in Kenya there are many places that you should note. When on a photography safari in Kenya it is important that you spend some time before you leave thinking about places to visit. You should focus your attention on a few specific areas or reserves to maximise the success of your trip and ensure you do not waste time travelling long distances across the country.

One of the best reserves for avid photographers is the Masai Mara. This is a section of the famous Serengeti in North Kenya and is a popular destination for Kenya safari holidays. The Masai Mara is well known for its wildebeest migration which occurs from July to October. If you are planning on visiting Kenya during this time you should certainly visit this region. Although the Masai Mara has sometimes been criticised for receiving large quantities of tourists, its pristine beauty and diversity of wildlife mean you are sure to get some fantastic shots. This region is a great photography area for experts and beginners alike. If you are a beginner or wish to brush up on your existing skills you can find guided photography Kenya safari holidays in the Masai Mara region.
