Are You Planning A Photo Safari To Kenya? Scroll Down For Details..

The people, places and fauna of Kenya is featured in nature documentaries and magazines around the world. Glorious light dances upon exceptional subject matter to create engaging and delightful images. Unfortunately, without proper instruction many visitors take home photographs that are lackluster, failing to capture the essence of the setting. Without proper composition, depth of field and light quality, you cannot achieve consistent spectacular images for all your shots no matter how much software correction you use. AfricanMecca offers photography safaris in Kenya that include the professional instruction and location selection that you need to create images beyond your highest expectations. You can easily capture an image that relays the close relationship between a mother elephant and her calf in Amboseli with Kilimanjaro as the backdrop, strength of Maasai warriors, gripping excitement of a cheetah kill in Samburu and so much more. Start your journey in Kenya by speaking with your AfricanMecca tour representative about your photo exploration of all that Kenya offers. Most photographers understand that the equipment does not make the picture. Instead, it is the vision of the photographer. In fact, a technically-sound image can be less appealing than one that is technically-imperfect, yet exquisitely represents the vision of the photographer. Under the guidance of our photography experts in Kenyan parks and reserves, you learn how to use depth of field, composition and other elements to effectively communicate your vision and everything that Kenya represents to you during your exploratory travel in Africa. Our guides take you to finest locations that offer ample subject matter and potential composition. Our photo tour guide also enlightens you about certain considerations, such as foreground, background, mid-ground, light, framing and composition. They point out elements to include that draw the eye into your final images, giving viewers a journey into the experience of your wilderness tour of Kenya. We teach you how to use various settings on your camera to enhance the story behind your photography, including auto tracking, panning, long exposures, night shots with flash and ambient light, macro and natural framing.
Imagine capturing the power of one of Kenya’s waterfalls and gushing rivers using long exposures. Photograph a lightning-fast cheetah chasing prey while keeping the mighty cat in sharp focus and blurring the background. Use short shutter speeds to freeze action of the thundering Great Migration across the Masai Mara plains. Capturing the smallest details of an outlandish flower in the forests of Mount Kenya and Kakamega through macro photography. Perfectly frame a colobus monkey in Lake Naivasha peering through foliage by using branches as a natural frame. Tell the world a cultural story with a crimson-garbed Maasai and Samburu warriors contrasted against lush rolling green hills. Transport viewers to a watering hole in Tsavo with golden sunset light dancing upon red dust stirred up by a bull elephant. Capture an iconic image of silhouetted camels traveling along the lands of Laikipia and Namunyak – Northern Frontier. Believe it or not, you can create images like these during your photographic tour holiday in Kenya, regardless of your equipment, including superior mobile devices, point-and-shoot cameras and prosumer and professional DSLR cameras. AfricanMecca arranges your Kenya photography safari with your images in mind. We select strategic accommodations that not only suit your personal travel style and budget, but also allow you to capitalize on the country’s best subject matter. Group sizes remain small so that you receive the individualized instruction you need. Our experienced instructors select sites with an effective balance of photographic requirements and guest desires. We give you the “hands on” experience and expert guidance you need to learn skills that will enhance your images for years to come. For the growing field of videography, our instructions show you how to best capture stunning and engaging videos that do far more than show a moving picture of Kenya. We show you how to use zoom and wide angle shooting to capture the energy, imagery and vastness of the Kenyan wilderness. Properly used, videography can create the same heart-pounding, emotional and mesmerizing experience you have during your outback trip in Africa. AfricanMecca offers four levels of photography safaris that take new photographers to unexpected heights in their skills, hone the skills of experienced photojournalists and challenge professionals to go beyond their comfort zones. All our Africa photography safaris are designed to give you a progressive level of instruction, but we can tailor these trips to meet your personal needs for an unmatched image-centric vacation in Africa’s pioneer bush country.

There are four options of specialized photo safaris we offer:

1. AfricanMecca Premier Photographic Safaris For Kenya

Our Premier Photographic Safaris are limited to only two photographers per 4x4 safari vehicle. This smallest group size ensures that you receive the personal attention, guidance and instruction you need. We take you to the best locations, and you stay in many of Kenya’s high-end accommodations. The opportunities to capture breathtaking images are plenty – the Great Migration in Masai Mara and the tense crossings of the Mara and Talek Rivers, leopards in Samburu and Laikipia, masses of flamingos at Lake Nakuru, elephants in Amboseli and many more experiences

2. AfricanMecca Independent Photographic Safaris For Kenya

For your ongoing photographic studies amidst Kenya’s bush country, we offer Independent Photographic Safaris after you complete at least one of our other image-creating safaris. These safaris give you exclusive access to an expert nature guide who has a passion for photography and a private safari vehicle. Independent Photographic Safaris are available throughout the year and may last seven to ten days. During that time frame, you may visit one or two parks during times of the year that highlight the best compositions and subjects.

3. AfricanMecca Custom Tailor-Made & Private Photographic Safaris For Kenya

Flexibility is an important part of any Kenya tour allowing for you to see the locations that you most desire. For our Custom Tailor-Made & Private Photographic Safaris, we completely accommodate your desires and timeline. You have the benefit of individual instruction throughout your safari. It is amongst the most popular of our photographic tours. Approximately 70% of the bookings are guests requesting repeat visits to popular and remote locations, as well as with specific photography safari professionals.

4. AfricanMecca Photographic Workshops For Kenya

Our most intense photography experience in Kenya are the AfricanMecca Kenya Photographic Workshops. The workshops last three to four days in one location, allowing you adequate time to master lighting, composition, subject selection and other elements. One of the greatest advantages of the workshops is that you spend time in the field and then return to camp for immediate critique and feedback from the instructors. You even gain recognition and support from your fellow photographers. Workshops are perfect for beginners and professionals who want to gain confidence and expand their portfolios.

Whatever your objective and skill level, you can confidently leave all the logistical preparations and detailed planning to AfricanMecca to assure you of a hassle-free Kenyan vacation where you can forget the apprehensions of foreign travel and concentrate on improving your camerawork.
