Day 1: Great Rift Valley and Arrival in Mara.

Participants who have chosen to fly to Mara directly will be transferred to the aircraft heading to Mara. Other participants start by 8.30 am towards our destination Mara. While heading towards Mara we stop to get some photographs of the Great rift valley.
The group then check into our camp, the Mara Serena Resort. This is the one of the most luxurious and well positioned lodges close to the river crossing. The views from Serena are stunning, the annual migrations take place very close and most times visible from the resort itself as the resorted is located right on the banks of the Mara river. We have lunch at the lodge followed by our first afternoon game drive till sunset. We return to the lodge to discuss the day's shoot and techniques before heading to dinner.
Day 2: Mara river.
We start our day early, finish an early breakfast and head out to photograph the migration. We spend a lot of time near the Mara river and hope to get shots of the crossing. Based on the interest levels of the group, we have an option of staying in field the whole day with packed lunch or we could come back to the resort. We hope to get the best shots of the wildebeest crossing by the end of day. We come back and review the pictures at the lodge before heading to dinner.
Day 3: Game drives around Serena.
We cover other areas around the Serena looking out for more game, the focus on this day will be photograph the Big 5. We cover the areas of Mara conservancy, which provide splendid landscape for game photography. We also scout areas close to the Serengeti plains, near the Tanzania border.
Day 4: Arrive at Sarova.
This day we leave early from our resort with packed lunches and head towards the our next destination the Mara Sarova camp. Along the path we cover the other parts of the Mara triangle. By the end of our drive, we would have covered the western wing of the triangle and hope to have got good shots of the migration.
Day 5: We spend the next day around the eastern wing of the triangle and cover the rest of the national park.
The area around the camp is well known for amazing game and splendid variety of birds which one can shoot just from the camp. The camp itself is like an oasis in the middle of the savannas with thick trees all around.
Day 6: The next day morning we drive to Lake Nakuru, one of the most exotic locations in Kenya.
Lake Nakuru is known for the thousands of Flamingos that throng its shores. The place is also rich in animal life and makes for some wonderful photography opportunities.
Day 7: After breakfast at the camp, we depart and drive back to Nairobi to catch our flights back home.
