Kenya Wildlife Photography Destinations

Kenya is the best all-round photo safari destination in East Africa with several world-class game reserves most notably The Masai Mara. Kenya wildlife photography is not just about the annual wildebeest migration and there are plenty of other amazing destinations and times of the year to visit Magical Kenya.

Masai Mara

Possibly the most famous game reserve in Africa alongside The Kruger and Okavango Delta it plays host to one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth – the Great Migration.

The Masai Mara, however, is just as photographically productive at other times of the year.

Samburu is Kenya’s lesser known photo safari gem.

So many different and unusual species to be seen and photographed as well as the proud and supremely photogenic Samburu Tribe. As an addition to The Masai Mara there are few places in east Africa that can compete.


Shompole is the newest addition to our favourite Kenyan wildlife photography destinations. Amazing birds, mammals, night drives and Masai village visits await. This conservancy is off the beaten track and well worth visiting if only for the amazing flamingoes and pelicans in Lake Magadi.

Shompole is an excellent addition to the Masai Mara
