Maneaters and Red Elephants 2023

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.

Practical info: 

This trip focuses entirely on wildlife photography.

On safari to Kenya again with Ingrid this year. How, just like last year, we have really enjoyed the trip. And this is mainly thanks to you Ingrid. Your care for the group is very good. A big compliment for the enthusiasm, your knowledge of photography and nature and you transfer this to the group...
What a trip, Ingrid! We have very much (and I mean really 'very much') enjoyed the safari and if it were possible, then we were already back in the plane to do another one. In addition to the detailed programming of your safaris, the briefing in advance, the good preparation, the beautifully...
This was our first safari. What a bull's eye, spotted very many animals and had ample time to photograph them, with Ingrid Vekemans' professional explanation how to best set the camera in all these circumstances. We learned a lot from her. The lodges were top and so was the food. We had super nice...
What makes Ingrids safaris so exciting, is that you can feel that Ingrid really lost her heart to Africa, her knowledge of the animals and the crazy patience she's got to wait for the ultimate photo moment. Even the birds she knows by name. Her spotting eyes see so much more than ours. Even if your...
The safari, Amboseli and Tsavo, was my 4th safari with Ingrid. Again a true adventure and complementary to the previous safaris. Even though I have quite some experience in wildlife photography, Ingrid still manages to push me to improve my abilities. This is also largely due to her experience with...
I have followed photo workshops and been on a photo safari before, but Ingrid's photo safari to Kenya, "Maneaters and Red Elephants" and her Macro and field photography workshop stood out above the others completely. Ingrid is very passionate about wildlife and takes all the time needed to observe...
Safari with Ingrid is a very intense, truly unforgettable and unique experience. She surrounds you with her passion, ablaze with Africa and photography. You accept the challenge to strive - together with her - for the ultimate experience, that amazing photo that touches your soul.
