Penny Robartes and ORYX Photo Tours are proud to present you with a wildlife photo safari dedicated to capturing one of Africa’s most sought-after natural occurrences in an immensely game rich safari destination, Kenya’s celebrated Masai Mara National Reserve, with Photo Tour Leader Penny Robartes.

The annual Wildebeest migration is one of the most incredible natural history events on the planet, as an estimated 1.5 million Wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of Plains Zebra and Thomson’s Gazelle follow the rains in search of the better quality grazing along age-old migration routes. When the vast herds arrive in the Masai Mara they must ford the Mara River, creating a spectacle without parallel in the natural world!

Along with the renowned big cat sightings and much-desired iconic African wildlife, there is clearly much that will keep you inspired and in awe on this incredible Kenya photography tour.

Why This Photo Tour Is For You

  • DESTINATION ALLURE

    Visit the world famous Masai Mara and witness one of the most incredible wildlife spectacles: the Great Wildebeest Migration.

  • ACTION PACKED MOMENTS

    With up to 1.5million Wildebeest on the move in various sized herds, it’s a predator’s paradise as carnivores such as Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Spotted Hyaena and Nile Crocodile are on the lookout for a meal, and predator prey interactions can be experienced on the plains and during river crossings.

  • FREEDOM TO EXPLORE

    As we utilise private-use game drive vehicles, we can spend as much time out as we wish between sunrise and sundown photographing Africa at its best!

  • CAMP

    Our camp is set on a private riverside site on the banks of the mighty Mara River with close access to major river crossing sections on the Mara River.

  • GUIDED EXPERIENCE

    Local knowledge of the region and its wildlife is key to crafting the ultimate safari experience. Combined with the photographic expertise of Penny Robartes, and you are in for an adventure that will further fuel your excitement for photography, the wildlife and destination.

    Days 3 To 7: Masai Mara National Reserve

    The following days on our Kenya photo safari will be spent in the Masai Mara National Reserve, focussing on areas that are holding key game species and have the potential for interesting interactions and of course, special photographic opportunities. We may spend full days out in the field during our Kenya photography tour, the benefits of which include not having to return to camp for meals (on such days, we would have a delicious selection of food packed onto the vehicle) and this enables us to explore some of the areas further away from camp and otherwise inaccessible on half-day forays. Our wonderful ground team is however very flexible to our needs, and depending on weather conditions, we may have the day broken up into morning and afternoon game drives.
