Details

Bring lots of memory cards and hard drives. Past participants of this safari often take 30k images or more. We recommend this safari only for those truly obsessed with capturing high quality images, as everyday is typically an all-day effort.

Our Eastern Serengeti camp is perfectly positioned to explore remote areas in all directions. We'll be situated within reach of the ever-moving Great Migration, a wondrous sight and experience in itself. Then add in all the big cats hunting, the abundant diversity wildlife and birds around every corner, and it's an overwhelming spectacle of nature. Our efforts will be concentrated in an area with the highest concentrations of apex predators in the world. This is predator central - with mass prey.

This safari will be conducted with two vehicles working as a team for photographing the wildlife and landscapes. Operating as a small team adds to the opportunities by covering more ground.
