Comfort and Luxury
On the ground we have a maximum of 4 passengers per landcruiser and a maximum group size of 8. Our choice of lodges and tented camps is absolutely first class. Only the best will do. We also include private charter flights to hop in and out of Nairobi.
The itinerary has been designed specifically to cover a wide range of habitats, and hence maximise our encounters with different species of birds. We will see plenty of big game during the journey, but this is no ordinary itinerary. It's our dream trip for birds of Kenya.
We stay in the middle of this special island in the north of Kenya. The bird life here in rich in colourful kingfishers, Hornbills, Sunbirds, the rare Verreaux's Eagle, a variety of storks, and the Violet Wood Hoopoe.
The salty wetlands to the north of Nakuru are some of the best parts of Kenya to see the Flamingo, plus the magnificent Grey-crowned Crane, Rufous-crowned Roller and the Abyssinian Scimitarbill.
We also spend time around Lake Nakuru to increase our chances of Flamingo in case Bogoria is too dry. Elementatita Serena camp is quite magnificent and bird wlaks through the low-canopy savannah will be rewarding.
Anovernight stop in a remarkable part of the forest, where an old timber lodge rests alongside the watering hole. The bird life is amazing here plus we can look for hyena and cranes and lots of other deer coming in for a drink.
Some of the most majestic landscapes and wilderness in Kenya, filled with leopards, antelope, oryx and elephants plus rare species of zebra and giraffe. We also have a chance to meet the Samburu tribes, closely related to the Maasai.

"My name is Ewen Bell and I love photography. Being on safari in Kenya is one of life's truly great experiences. The wildlife and wilderness offer incredible inspiration for photography, and the people of Kenya make it a travel journey that you will remember for a lifetime. I can't wait to get back in 2019 and share the journey with my good friends, Fredrik Broman and Tim Dolby."

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
All photography on this site by Ewen Bell
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
