Photographers who photograph wildlife, professionally or at amateur level, are quire different from the rest of the pack. It's not just that they use insanely long lenses, but their approach to their subjects has to be done in a particular way.
Every wildlife photographer, regardless of skill level, dreams of going to Kenya at least once. It's been Africa's top safari destination for some time now and if you look at some the facts, it's easy to understand why that is.
Most of the locations you will see in Kenya are breathtaking. Mount Kilimanjaro is probably the best known location in the country, but indeed the opportunities it offers are amazing.
Even experienced wildlife photographers who go to Kenya for the first time will be shocked. Seeing elephants roaming the savanna, lions and hyena preying on gazelles and magnificent flocks of birds will feel like being in another world. You might be lucky enough to capture the Great Migration with hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebras running through the plains, with predators behind them. It's one of the last few places on earth where this majestic ritual of nature remains undisturbed.
The Serengeti is another one of the wonders that can be found in Kenya. It is one of the largest remaining ecosystems for migratory animals and it's also known for one of the largest lion populations remaining on the planet. The part of the Serengeti located in Kenya is called Masai Mara. One of the best ways to observe it is to take a balloon ride and photographing form a unique perspective. Unlike travelling in a 4x4, flying in a balloon over grazing herds, roaming elephants and other wild animals will give you opportunities for incredible images that will change your portfolio forever.
If you find yourself in Tsavo National Park at sunset, you might be in for yet another amazing show hosted by Mother Nature. Thousands of flamingos taking flight in the soft, gentle light of the Kenyan sunset is indeed a privilege and an occasion that will leave you with treasured memories as the years pass.
The beauty of Kenya is only matched by how dangerous it can be for its visitors. We recommend going only in organized safaris.
