Discover The Unexpected

8 Days Kenya Photographic Safari


A one-week safari in Kenya designed especially for photographers and involves staying seven nights in Kenya’s finest wildlife area, the Mara ecosystem, as well as being escorted by a well-known wildlife photographer, Paolo Torchio.

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. Transport from Nairobi to the Mara is by scheduled flights to avoid a long journey over bumpy roads and to give more time to view the wildlife. From the camps, game drives are taken in exclusive open-sided 4×4 safari vehicles with experienced safari driver-guides.

Best time to visit: June - October
