You will stay for a night at the Serena Hotel in Nairobi before leaving for a flight to Maasai Mara National Reserve. At Maasai Mara, you will stay for 6 nights at the Entim Camp. Entim Camp was designed with a purpose to be in the best possible location to view the wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Entim Camp is eco-friendly and small with only ten tastefully but differently furnished and well-equipped tents. The decor aims to enhance the surrounding environment. All ten guest tents overlook the Mara River and are well placed, en-suite with flush toilets and hot showers.

There is a cozy lounge area with a small library, separate bar, and open-fronted dining area allowing guests the experience of eating meals while watching the animals move to and from the river. The experience at Entim Camp is not your average hotel or lodge experience, it’s about being right in the hub of one of the most famous wildlife reserves in the world and part of the Kenya safari experience.

Photographers of all levels are welcome. Each tour offers a small client-leader ratio that allows for personal attention and customized guidance on photography. Here, you will be taught creative techniques to set your pictures apart from the rest. Additionally, you will also learn the traditional techniques like portraiture, action, focusing, and composition.

After your morning drives, you will have optional interactive workshops on photographic technique and post-processing while reviewing your images. The goal is for you to make the most out of your experience and to take home pictures you’ve long desired. Your safari drivers are trained in the basics of composition and lighting, as they apply to wildlife photography, in order to best line up the vehicles for the most advantageous shots.
