When wildlife and landscape photography come together in Kenya
Photo by Tom D. Jones
Join us in capturing the legendary Big Five as well as a plethora of other indigenous animals on the magnificent plains of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Photographer Tom D. Jones has spent the last seven years documenting the incredible wildlife of Kenya. Together with Tom, we will bring you to his favorite locations which have served as his backdrops for his book and simultaneous exhibition by the same title, True Wildlife.TOP: The majestic African elephant

The Maasai Mara is absolutely teeming with wildlife and offers a unique chance to get up close and personal with said animals, including the famous Big Five:
Lion, rhinoceros, leopard, African buffalo and African elephant.
So named as they were considered the most difficult game to hunt on foot, this workshop sees you hunt them with your cameras and capture breathtaking imagery sure to leave a lasting impression on both you and whoever you show the images to.The Mara is one of Africa’s National Reserves, sharing this distinction with other parks such as Etosha National Park, Kruger National Park and the Serengeti, to name a few, and is famous for the annual Wildebeest migration, where more than 1.5 million wildebeest travel through the Reserve.
Your comfort is of the utmost importance to us. As such, we always make sure that our camp is as close to possible to the action – whilst still offering luxury and modern amenities.

You’ll be transported in specialized 4×4 vehicles built for wildlife and safari photography, and every vehicle is replete with a private driver in constant contact with our experts. This ensures the best possible conditions for getting up close and personal with the wildlife.
We will also visit the local Maasai villages and get a glimpse of this ancient culture, offering ample time for portrait photography to boot.
