One Opening


Yes this is a special African Wildlife Photography Trip that you have never seen before because it has only been offered to a select group of return clients. In addition, no other trip has been put together the rare photo opportunities like those presented here all in one trip.



Lentorre: Built in Olkirimatian Conservancy, bordering Shompole, Lentorre Lodge offers access to the two conservancies totaling over 80,000 acres of conservation area.


This location gives you access to both day and night Water Level lighting controlled hide photography allowing for an intimate eye to eye perspective with the wildlife.


There is the option of going on a helicopter photography tour while staying at Lentorre flying over Lake Magadi and Natron known for its flamingoes but this is at an additional cost.

Amboseli National Park: Imagine photographing stunning images of the large herds of elephants, zebras, and giraffes as they roam through the dusty plains of Amboseli with Mount Kilimanjaro as a backdrop. The images of big-tusked elephants or a tower of giraffe, set against the backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro, has made it one of Africa’s most iconic landscapes.

African Migration

African Wildlife Migrating

Amboseli is also a place of big skies, dramatic clouds, and far horizons, which makes it a favorite destination of fine art photographers at our exclusive Private concession where the biggest tusker often reside.

Laikipia Wilderness Camp: This special conservancy is host to Giza, the most famous cat and black leopard. We continue to hope she will flourish, but this is nature, and anything can happen to her between now and then. However, the regular spotty leopard sightings are excellent. This conservancy is also ultra-exclusive with only one small main camp and even smaller sister camp. It is also located in the North, so it has all the exotic species of the north such as the grevys zebra, reticulated giraffe, oryx, gerenuk, vulturine guinea fowl, and wild dogs.Photo
