GETTING THERE The second day of your photographic safari begins with an enchanting breakfast with the giraffes at Giraffe Manor. After this you will be transferred to Wilson Airport for a one hour twenty-minute flight to Samburu. On arrival we will take you to Sasaab, a heavenly oasis in Samburu, just in time for lunch. This is the ideal opportunity to capture your surroundings.
STAY AT Sasaab
EXPERIENCE The hilly terrain of Samburu land in the north of Kenya is different to other parts of the country and you will find some stunning landscape shots, especially up on sundowner rock as the sky turns crimson. Game drives offer endless opportunities to capture a huge array of wildlife. Look out for the Samburu Special Five – Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, gerenuk and Beisa oryx – all endemic species to the area. Encounters with Samburu’s majestic elephant herds present enchanting photo possibilities. A real highlight at Sasaab’s luxury tented camp is the glimpse offered into Samburu life. As you learn about their traditions and culture, you will find your lens immediately drawn to the alluring, vibrant beading and feathered warrior headdresses. With your personal guide by your side, enjoy the privilege of being able to photograph some of these people. Looking through the lens at local communities allows for a completely different, and often quite intimate, perspective of Kenya.
When you feel like putting your camera down, there are endless activities which enable you discover more of this enchanting corner of Kenya: camp out in the wild under the stars, take a ride on a camel through the wilderness, speed through dry riverbeds on a quad bike or relax at the tranquil spa overlooking the river.
