Maneaters and Red Elephants 2020

This full 10 day photo safari takes you to three of Africa’s most beautiful nature reserves.

On clear days Amboseli, which lies on the border with Tanzania, offers gorgeous views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Dry and dusty, this park offers the perfect opportunity for atmospheric twilight photography.

Tsavo is split in two parts: Tsavo East and Tsavo West, which differ greatly in scenery, though both have intensely warm coloured red sand. Tsavo West has a stunning, volcanic landscape with dense vegetation, whereas Tsavo East is drier and more sparsely vegetated. The Tsavo and Galana Rivers offer refreshing sights of palm trees, and both Tsavos have a remote wilderness atmosphere, with much lower tourist densities than other parks in Kenya.

All three reserves are famous for their huge population of elephants, but there’s also a good possibility of seeing lion (Maneaters of Tsavo!), buffalo, cheetah, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, leopard and hippo. Many more mammals and hundreds of bird varieties will be welcoming you.

Africa, I had never been there, but the urge was there. Where could I start? I had already done a few workshops with Ingrid and that was always fine, correctly handled. I didn't hesitate for long and signed me up for a safari, that was a year ago. There was still a place available for a second...
That I was a complete beginner, was clear from day 1... But thanks to your tutoring and above all your endless patience, I have learned a lot and even managed to take some very nice photos (I am very modest, you can tell). Having a passion for photography is one thing, but being able to transfer...
The photo trip was my first safari. For me a super fun way to get acquainted with game parks in Africa.
