Fabulous migration wildlife and great photography on the Kenyan plains
For many who have not travelled to Africa, their impressions are often of acacia dotted plains, hundreds of different bird species and herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra pursued relentlessly by their predators.
This safari embodies all of those fantastic images and does it in superb style - a classic safari in a classic destination. When you only have a relatively short time in Kenya it is essential to maximize it in the reserves and not waste time travelling all over the country.
Exodus' awarding winning resident photographer Paul Goldstein has his own brand of safari. His mantra is simple, do the time at the coal face and the rewards will follow, so be prepared for early starts, long days and plenty of advice and enthusiasm.
Any wilderness fan or photographer will be particularly attracted by this safari.
What the papers say about the Photographic Safari in Kenya...
Daily Mail Online: Valerie Elliot writes about: Young lions grab a camera and tripod dropped by tourists on safari (December 2011).
Paul Steele writes on Huffington Post: Photographic Dreams Of The Wild Do Come True (Jun 2011)
The Telegraph - Picture of the Day - Paul Goldstein's Lioness and cub (July 2011)
What makes this trip responsible?
The properties we use employ local staff and cook using local produce and we use local guides. Currently Exodus supports a project which aims to build predator proof bomas (enclosures). The aim of this project is threefold: first to reduce the number of predator attacks on livestock, second to reduce the number of retaliatory attacks and poisoning of predators from community members who have lost livestock, and thirdly to reduce deforestation caused by alternative means of boma construction.
