It has been carefully planned to put guests in the best areas of Kenya for the greatest variety of wildlife with visits to Lake Nakuru and the Maasai Mara.

This adventure offers unlimited game drives, enabling to stay out all day if the sightings and weather conditions are optimal. Each participant will have a full row in specially designed Toyota 4x4 Landcruisers giving guests much needed space and the freedom to photograph from either side of the vehicle or out the top. The small group sizes also afford guests individual attention and a comfortable environment to learn. Each vehicle will have a Nature's Photo Adventures professional photographer ready to share techniques and answer any questions guests may have.

Now for some information on the parks that will be visited....
Lake Nakuru National Park is renowned as a bird sanctuary with over 400 bird species including huge flocks of flamingos. The park is situated in the Great Rift Valley and there are areas of the park where guests will get out of the vehicles to capture the action. It's a paradise for mammals including endangered black rhinos, white rhinos, two species of waterbuck and it's also one of the only places to see the highly endangered Rothschild Giraffe which only has a few hundred members left in the wild. The park has a healthy population of predators: Lions, Leopard, Cheetah, Hyena and Jackals and there's lots of action at this time of year.

The Maasai Mara National Reserve is where guests will witness one of the greatest wildlife spectacles of the world, the Great Migration. Nowhere in the world is there a movement of animals as immense as the wildebeest migration where over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. This safari to arrive for the peak of migration activity as well as the large number of predators which are drawn to the area because of the abundant prey. The lions, hyenas, leopards, cheetahs and lesser predators await the migration with eager anticipation and the chances of seeing predators hunting is excellent.

Watch the large number of Wildebeest and other vegetarians cross the Mara river, the frantic crossings are filled with danger as crocodiles lurk in the water. In the Maasai Mara they will be stalked, hunted and run down by the larger carnivores. The Mara has one of the largest densities of lion in the world and it's no wonder this is the home of the BBC Big Cat Diary. The Mara is split between two districts - Narok on the eastside of the river which is managed by the KWS and the TransMara on the western side managed by the Mara Conservancy. To take advantage of everything this park has to offer including vastly different landscapes, Odyssey Safaris will be staying on both sides during visit.
