At Sunworld, Photographic Safaris are some of our Specialist Tours at Sunworld! For the avid photographer to get pictures from a different perspective, this new and innovative door design may be a wonderful idea! A removable mattress underneath aids comfort.
We simply understand WHAT YOU, the professional or hobby photographer who is interested in Nature, Wildlife, Landscapes and Tribes, expects of us.
We offer modified, open sided vehicles, specifically designed to meet your needs ! With a wooden side bar for placing your camera and bean bags of your choice (3 different types available), roll up canvas to offer a wider range of movement, we have adapted the vehicle perfectly.
Most important to contribute to the success of your photo safari is YOUR GUIDE! At Sunworld Safaris, we have excellent, Photographic Safari Guides ! Not only are they knowledgeable on Fauna / Flora and expert game spotters, but they also know exactly how to position your vehicle in the best light.
In June 2019, a vast majority of our guides concluded a 3 day Photo Workshop with a professional Photographer to fine-tune on client expectations during a trip. Annual training in various fields for our staff is an on-going activity in our company. We have at least 20 Photographic Safari Guides we can highly recommend! Pls. find some sample Photographic Safaris that we offer below!
Most of our clients are interested in PRIVATE Photography Trips which we tailor make to suit your interest, type of accommodation and budget.
We usually also give great recommendations on the best Lodge / Hotel accommodations to stay at as the location matters most in order to capitalize on early morning light and best game sightings. A highlight & favorite in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve is Mara Bush Camp & Private Wing. With the addition of the new Soroi Photo Studio located at the famous Maasai Mara you get hire a full camera kit or engage the services of our resident photographer for a quick photoshoot class
Our guides are very patient and game drives are UNLIMITED. What does this mean? Your game drives will be more than just the usual “early morning & evening drives”! You decide whether you’d like to stay out ALL morning with a picnic breakfast (we recommend this during the migration period) or even FULL DAY with packed breakfast or lunch. Mara Bush Camp & Private Wing offer great picnic meals and hot lunches are available on request. You may also enjoy a much longer afternoon drive and as mentioned, timings are unlimited as long as they tie in with the recommended park rules & guidelines.
A new & personal Favourite is the Lumo Community & Wildlife Conservancy which is a private conservancy, bordering Tsavo West National Park. Fantastic photo opportunities and exclusive game viewing as well as a fully setup photographic hide are part of the fantastic Lions Bluff Portfolio. Also to mention, we have another photographic hide at Larsens Camp in Samburu Game Reserve
Photographic Safaris of this nature are both available in Kenya and Tanzania!
We have some “join in Safaris” led by Professional Photographers. If you are interested in a “join in trip” rather than a Private Safari, pls. do not hesitate to contact us.
