    Our Maasai Mara photo safari with The African Photographer exceeded our expectations! Isak was a perfect photo guide and Jackson was a perfect guide / driver. Both are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and engaging. Together, they delivered an experience full of learning, discovery, and enjoyment. Our many animal sightings and up-close views of their behavior were amazing and were the heart of the photo-safari experience. Isak and Jackson seemed to always have new surprises for us. The photo opportunity was abundant! Our safari experience was great from the beginning to the end, from the 5-star Serena Nairobi Hotel experience and luxury Entim Private Explorer Camp to the amazing Maasai Mara itself.

    On my first time doing Safari and also being in Africa, The African Photographer and Kenya left a memorable mark on me. I definitely hope to go back to Africa and I would not hesitate to travel with The African Photographer again. The sightings were unforgettable, the tour leaders were great, the service was impeccable, and the food at the camp was amazing.

    If you have any doubts about going to the Maasai Mara with The African Photographer, just do it! We enjoyed a fabulous trip with The African Photographer in September 2014 to see the great migration in the Mara and were fortunate enough to see three crossings during our stay. We have always booked previously with a UK based travel agent to ensure we had ABTA and ATOL protection. We discovered The African Photographer by chance as we have never seen them advertise in the UK and after careful research, we decided to take a chance and book with The African Photographer as we really liked their itinerary, choice of accommodations, and most importantly, their professional photographer guides who looked very impressive. What a great decision! Everything was superb. Minette dealt with the booking process and the lens hire was very efficient and always responded quickly to my queries. Once at Nairobi, all of the housekeeping arrangements, transfers, and stopover hotel were excellent. Our small aircraft flight to the Mara was a great experience. Our accommodation at the Entim Private Explorer Camp was very good and the food was acceptable. A key point for us was that the camp is inside the national park, so we were not constrained by park entrance and closing times. The location, near the Mara river, was fantastic and as the camp is unfenced, animals can and do come very close to the tents on occasions. Going to bed to the sounds of the African Plains was a magical experience. Our game drives were incredible. Our local guide, Anthony, was first class and regularly found great sightings. Our photography guides, Isak and Heinrich, were outstanding and both patiently helped us to improve our technique over the course of the trip. We really enjoyed their different personal styles and their company. We were also extremely lucky, the famous wildlife photographer, Art Wolfe, was in the camp making a documentary and one evening after dinner, Art spent over an hour critiquing some of our group's images, providing us with some invaluable feedback and encouragement. In summary, I had a wonderful trip to a stunning location to see one of nature’s great spectacles. This was our third trip to Africa in the last couple of years and as people warned us, we have definitely been bitten by the bug.
