    Sept 12 NairobiWe begin our journey by meeting up at the Tamarind Hotel, just outside the centre of Nairobi. There are nearby shopping malls if you need to pickup anything last minute, and any excess luggage can be left at the hotel until we return at the end of the journey. Airport transfers on arrival to Nairobi are included and we recommend Kenya Airways or KLM who operate out of the newest and most comfortable terminal for arrivals and departures.

    Sept 13-14  Baringo Island CampWe get out of Nairobi early on the first day for a private charter flight heading north to Lake Baringo. When we land we’ll be transfered to the Island Camp and spend the next two nights acclimating to the wilderness. Crocodiles and hippos in these waters make it very unfriendly for swimming, so we’ll stick to the camp pool instead. The bird life here in rich in colourful kingfishers, Hornbills, Sunbirds, the rare Verreaux’s Eagle, a variety of storks, and the VIolet Wood Hoopoe. Just to name a few of the 400+ species we potentially can observe here. We’ll also make time to talk techniques and get a solid start on taming your wild images with adavanced processing skills.

    Sept 15-16  Bogoria BogoriaOur journey takes us south to a more salty wetland habitat, Bogoria Bogoria, which is famous for offering suitable conditions for the Flamingo. The high geothermal activity in the region also gives us a chance to try hot springs. We will be looking for Hamerkops and the Grey-crowned Crane at Lake Bogoria, the elegant Rufous-crowned Roller, the quirky Abyssinian Scimitarbill, plus some harder to capture birds like the Steel-blue Wydah, Narina Trogon and D’Arnuad’s Barbet.

    Sept 17-18 Elementatita SerenaLake Nakuru is also famous for Flamingo but it depends on the water level each year. When there’s too much water in Nakuru all the flamingoes head north to Bogoria. We stop here for some excellent wildlife spotting regardless, including a game drive to find leopards. With or without the flamingos there is plenty of other bird life around Nakuru and Lake Elementatita, plus the Elementatita Serena camp is central to some excellent bird walks through light forest and low-canopy savannah.

    Sept 19-20 Maji MotoTwo nights off the grid on the edge of the Maasai plains. We stay with a Maasai family to learn about the life of warriors and explore the bird life. This is an opportunity to capture striking portraits, get close up with Weaver Birds and experience the peace and quiet of the landscape. We will go down a little bit in comfort but definitely upwards in adventure factor. There is no power and only have drop toilets, but there are hot showers and cold drinks. You will need to be careful with battery power and have a few spare batteries for your camera. This does limit our ability to process photos at night. We make up for the basic comforts when we reach the Maasai Mara.

    Sept 21-23 Maasai MaraNow we head for the wide open grasslands of the Maasai Mara and stay in a truly wonderful lodge called “IIlkeliani”. We’ll be inside the park for pre-dawn light every morning and ready to photograph the animals as the sun comes up. The Maasai Mara is very open and the action takes place within small moments in between long drives. The are no certainties that you’ll see a leopard, or cheetah or even the lions but we will make our best efffort. Expect to see an amazing abundance of antelopes, wildebeeste, topi, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and literally dozens of other species.

    One of the best things about staying at IIlkeliani is it’s location on the river banks, surrounded by wooded forest and all the birds that recognise this as a haven. Finches, coucal, kingfishers, chats, bablblers, sunbirds and weavers all make the most of this camp site. There is a lot to photograph without even going for a game drive. We will also make arrangements for an optional sunrise balloon ride over the Maasai Mara.

    Sept 24 NairobiWe catch our private plane out of the Maasai Mara to make the journey to Nairobi a lot quicker and a little more scenic. It’s a private aircraft chartered just for us so you won’t have to worry about checkin limits or how heavy your camera bag is. If you have excess luggage from travelling before or after the Kenya trip, you can leave it at our Nairobi hotel to be reunited at the end. The evening in Nairobi will be our last night together and a chance to repack before catching our international flights home.

    Sept 25 DepartureCheckout from hotel in the morning will be 11am. We will have a private airport transfer arranged for each of your flights.

    Invitation to Beginners

    Everybody is on their own journey and we love helping people explore new horizons in

    photography. We take time to assist everyone on a tour with their specific needs, to talk about

    what they want to learn. Sometimes that means how to take advantage of different modes on

    the camera, sometimes it’s a discussion about how to advance your career in photography.

    No two people are the same. That’s why we keep these trips limited to just 8 people, so we can

    enjoy their company and spend time helping everybody along with their particular journey.

    You don’t need to be an expert to come on this tour. We will help you with suggestions on what

    to bring to make the most of the opportunities. We’re here to help.

    Getting CloserIt’s a mantra of Ewen’s that if you want a better photo then you need to get closer to your subject.

    This is not always easy when shooting birds and wildlife, but we’re going to do our best to make it happen.

    Big game will be chased in the landcruisers, and small game will be enjoyed when walking near our lodges.

    We have a local bird expert from Kenya plus our Australian bird expert, Tim Dolby. Our goal is help you get

    great images of the wildlife, and have a wonderful expereince of Kenya.

    Our landcruisers have with roof hatches so you can stand up with telephoto lenses and have a clear line

    of sight on wildlife action as it unfolds. On safari drives Fredrik, Ewen and Tim will ride up front to aid with

    spotting, and in the back there will be a maximum of 3 travellers per vehicle. Each vehicle is designed to

    carry 6 people in the rear instead of just 3, so there will be lots of room for everyone and minimal “elbow

    issues” when the action breaks out.

    Most importantly, our drivers are extremely skilled in getting the small but agile vehicles into excellent

    positions for us to photograph. We call them drivers, but we understate their abilities as such. They

    are wilderness guides of the first order. On Ewen’s previous trip to Kenya to shoot a magazine story he

    concluded, “A good driver is more important than a good photographer.”

    Lovely LensesYes a good quality telephoto lens will be essential on this trip, but please make sure you have a good wide

    angle for scenery and a portrait lens for meeting tribes people. A 24-70mm f/2,8 will cover most of the non-

    wildlife photography.

    For shooting wildlife the 200-800mm range is where you want to be. Shooting smaller birds simply

    demands a longer lens, and sometimes even the bigger ones don’t come close enough. For most other

    wildlife 400mm is very good, but you will want to go well beyond that to really enjoy bird photography.

    There are some superb telephoto lenses on the market which reach to 400mm, which when combined

    with a smaller DSLR and/or a 1.4x extender will give you close to 600mm or 800mm reach. A full-frame

    DSLR is not the most practical option when chasing wildlife, and smaller sensor cameras can offer a

    reasonable trade-off betwen performance, travelability and quality.

    All of the bird images in this brochure were taken with the Lumix G9 with a 100-400mm lens, the equivalent

    of 200-800mm on a full-frame DSLR. It has a very small sensor but can still produce nice bokeh. Importantly,

    it has a sensational autofocus system that allows offers precision control over where you focus. You can read

    more about Ewen’s adoption of the Lumix G9 and other bird photography advice on his website:

    Image ProcessingEwen likes to emphasis how much of the art of photography takes

    place in the digital darkroom.

    Every day of this adventure will allow for opportunities to discuss, refine and learn about post-capture processing techniques.

    Do bring your laptop and your preferred processing software. A photo is never finished at the moment of the shutter, and as you learn different ways to process your images you can also adjust your technical approach to the camera accordingly.

    Art of BirdsEwen and Fredrik will help you with the technical

    challenges to chasing birds, but they will also guide you on

    the artistic potential. Mastering a little of the technical can

    open doors to much greater creativity.

    We will help you prepare for the trip in advance and

    discuss different solutions to suit your camera setup. We

    also encourage everyone on this trip bring a laptop so we

    can spend time processing images and working through

    the creative process during our travels.

    Every photo in this brochure is a photo that you can achieve, and we will do our best to help you experience the same photographic joy.

    Local Photographer Fredrik Broman

    Fredrik Broman has cultivated his local knowledge of Kenya since 1998 when he worked on the photography and writing for an educational book about the Savannah and the Maasai Culture. Fredrik lived in Kenya full time for 3

    years and, after moving his base camp back to the Arctic Circle, has continued to return to Africa every year.

    Fredrik has been increasingly involved in tourism development with the Maasai people, and local entrepreneurs. Fredrik started to run safaris with other international photographers, commissioned shoots for tourism developers

    and also of course his annual private trip to explore new safari experiences with his family.

    Aside from his experience in Africa, Fredrik is internationally recognised for his work in the Arctic as an editorial photographer as well as innovating new Arctic safari experiences. He once brought guests from the Maasai tribes

    to experience the Arctic winter as a unique cultural exchange.

    Photography InstructorEwen Bell

    As you can see Ewen is a fan of the big cats, and the little ones too. Travel photographer and journalist, Ewen’s work appears in photographic magazines, National Geographic Traveller, Lonely

    Planet Traveller, Food & Travel UK, Vacation & Travel, and many other outlets.

    Ewen describes photography as a lifestyle, and enjoys sharing his love of the art with a select few travellers every year. Ewen is always happy to share his knowledge on photographic matters of

    technical, creative and career inspiration. His website “Photography for Travellers” is dedicated to offering advice on practical approaches to changing your creative perspective.

    “The sunbirds are my favourite, if only because they are so fast and so small. Getting close enough to be happy with the photo demands patience and persistence. When you hear them singing across the

    tree tops it’s quite marvellous though, whether you get a photo or not.“

    Where We StayThis is not a backpacking bus rambling across Africa with pasta and tomato sauce for dinner every night.

    It’s a little bit of luxury, a lot of wilderness and the occasional tented camp to give us the best access to

    wildlife along the way.

    We have thrown in a few really luxurious stops along the way, but mostly we use well established lodges

    and tented camps to ensure that you are comfortable and well rested in between safaris.

    We do include two nights at a unique location called Maji Moto, where we are off the grid and staying with

    a Masai family. It’s a remarkable experience but does mean your hot shower comes out of a solar bucket

    instead of a tap. We trade comfort for experience on that single location.

    The itinerary is designed for wonderful wild life opportunities, and coupled with superb accommodation hand picked by Fredrik.

    Cultural ConnectionsMost people will travel to Kenya only once in a lifetime, so we want them to go home having had the most significant and rewarding experiences possible.

    There’s more to Kenya than the Big Five and Fire Finches. We love the wildlife but on this tour we also want to devote a little time to meet the people who enrich the culture of Kenya so deeply. To begin with we have our safari drivers. Schooled hard and long by the Kenya Wildlife Authorities they are incredibly knowledgeable on the natural reserves, national parks, animals, flora and more. They are our heroes.

    Their wisdom extends beyond the wildlife and into logistics. These are the guys you want to have on hand to navigate around impassable dirt roads, hack through fallen trees on the track or simply avoid the worst of Nairobi traffic in the downtown. You will love our guys for their generous spirit and capable leadership.

    From the very beginning when Fredrik and Ewen began designing this experience for photographers, they decided it was critical that travellers have a meaningful opportunity to engage and understand the people of the landscape, not just the wildlife. The itinerary you see here is the result of that plan.
