Penny Robartes and ORYX Photo Tours are proud to present our Life of Predators Photo Safari, which takes place in one of the world’s most iconic and thrilling wildlife destinations, Kenya’s Masai Mara in the exclusive and private Mara North Conservancy.

Timed to fall into the quieter “low season”, the migrating wildebeest herds are far away in the Serengeti which leaves the resident wildlife under the hungry and watchful gaze of the sought-after resident predators. Join us as we train our cameras on the remarkable Mara “locals”, bearing witness to some of the incredible moments that unfold before us in one of Africa’s premier wildlife areas.

Why This Photo Tour Is For You


    Our days will be dedicated the predators of the Mara, and there are certainly a lot of them around! With the annual Wildebeest migration having ended a few months prior, the predators are hungry! Having to work harder for their meals and hunt more often, this photo tour is potentially action-filled!


    There is no supplemental fee for solo travellers on this safari.


    With 2 dedicated ORYX game drive vehicles available for us to use, we not only have a good amount of space available for dedicated photographers but also have the ability to spend as long on game drives as we wish, making the most of the photographic opportunities that we encounter.


    We will be staying in the Mara North Conservancy: a private area where only guests staying in one the conservancy’s camps are allowed access and traversing rights. Off-road driving is allowed here, and presents greater opportunities to get the photographic angles we desire! Capture authentic and intimate moments of the Mara’s wildlife while getting to learn a little of their fascinating lives.


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

    Days 3 to 6: Mara North Conservancy, Masai Mara

    The Mara North Conservancy is exclusive and private, which means that only guests of lodges/camps that are based in this area are able to traverse it. The Mara North Conservancy is an intimate and exclusive conservancy that offers the freedom of off-road driving, as well as afternoon game drives that can go well into the night. This combination is the perfect scenario for wildlife photographers as we can drive directly to the sightings that interest us. Our time spent in the Masai Mara on our Kenya photography tour will be broken up into morning and afternoon game drives, always timed to utilise the best lighting conditions. After dark, we have the ability to embark on night-drives for star photography opportunities. Siesta time in camp can be used to relax and soak up the environment from ones accommodation or from the comfortable lounge area.

    Penny will be conducting Lightroom editing sessions when back from the field at allocated times.
