This all-inclusive private safari is perfect for two couples or a group of four friends looking to experience and photograph the wonderful green season and all it has to offer.

This is our favorite time of year: it’s the low season for safaris which means there far fewer tourists around. The fantastic wildlife encounters are just as abundant, including the famous Great Migration and lush landscapes stretching as far as the eye can see.

Don’t make the mistake of letting the chance of rain showers scare you away — they are generally short-lived downpours and only add to the wild drama. The fact is thunderstorm clouds make for the incredible photographic conditions and are highly desired by those looking to capture great images.

This is a private safari so you will be free to do and see exactly what you want at the pace you’re comfortable with: concentrate on wildlife photography or just relax and enjoy the spectacular views and wildlife sightings.

We have picked specific dates here but this safari is available anytime from March 15 through the end of May and can be modified to suit your desires with prices adjusting to group sizes and itinerary changes.
