Kenya Less Travelled
Photographic Safari

A genuinely unique itinerary to some lesser known parts of Kenya with Ewen Bell, travelling by plane and private landcruisers to explore the wilderness, wildlife and culture of Kenya. This tour design takes in a range of habitats to the north of the Masai Mara. In addition to the big mammals we look for some of the smaller creatures with special attention to birdlife. Incredible value and luxury in a once in a lifetime journey, full of opportunities to learn more about photography and experience some of the best wildlife in Africa. It's an all-star team to ensure you have a truly remarkable African adventure.

Tour Highlights

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.

Samburu

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.

The Aberdares

An overnight 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.

Lake Nakuru

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. This area is great for Rhino spotting and several types of monkeys.

Bogoria Bogoria

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.

Lake Baringo

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. This is a remote and quiet location for wildlife safaris with very few visitors and lots of mammals.



My unique itinerary design covers a wide range of habitats. We will see plenty of big mammals, but with the extra challenge and inspiration of Kenya's smaller treasures.

Why Kenya

 

Stunning Habitats

Kenya has some truly diverse habitats and that makes for diversity of species. The Aberdares reach almost 4000m at their highest point and you feel like you have entered an entirely new continent. It's not the Kenya people think of. Then you have the salt lakes in the north, and the open plains of the south.

Great Guides

As with all my tours the key ingredient is great people on the ground, people who are accepting of photographers and their demands to get the best light. As it happens, my local champion, Chris, is also a super nice guy and I really enjoy his company. He is quite but kind and oh so clever at finding wildlife.

Culture & Camps

Many parts of Africa have been over-run by tourism and it changes the experience for travellers. Kenya has retained it's own cultural charms and you can still connect with the people here. It's not over commercialised.

The World's Best Photo Tours
You won't find a better tour experience: Unmatched knowledge of the locations and local support, hand crafted experiences that run only once every one or two years, our experience teaching the art of photography and a commitment to smaller group sizes.

Beginners Welcome
These tours are not just for advanced photographers, we love welcoming beginners to the craft to help them fast track their creative abilities. Sharing what we know and giving other photographers a truly wonderful experience is the best part of running these tours. If you're ready to learn new skills while you travel then this is the trip for you. If you want to spend quality time with like minded people and enjoy the sharing of knowledge and experiences, then we would love to have you along.

8 is Great
If you have to share a tour with dozens of other photographers, then it's just a tour instead of a photo tour. Smaller groups mean less drama, more fun and are infinitely more rewarding. My first responsibility is to ensure every person on my tour gets plenty of my time and advice, and with fewer photographers in one place you will come home with better photos and the best light :)

Small isn't just good, it's great!
