The Great Wildebeest Migration in Africa – is one of the last mass terrestrial wildlife movements left on the planet. If ever there was a time to see and photograph the migration, it is now.
C4 decided to run the best photo safari we could muster in the heart of the greatest show. Its simple really - find a camp in the middle of the action, book it for 9 photographers with the best photo camp operator in the business and then have C4’s professional photographers personally guide you whilst on safari. Between the C4 guides there are more than 30 seasons in the Mara and they have mapped their own special places and secret spots, which they will share with you while driving around.
This safari will consist of an itinerary as such:
Day 1 - Crowne Plaza Hotel, Kenya
Arrive in Kenya’s capital of Nairobi in the early afternoon. A short transfer accross the road will take you to the Crowne PLaza. The perfect place to relax for the evening. Your C4 Photo Safari guide will make contact with you at the hotel to arrange dinner for the photography group and discuss the logistics of the following morning.
Day 2 - 6 Mara Olapa Camp, Kenya
We depart for the Masai Mara after breakfast via road. You will be staying in a classic East African style safari camp consisting of canvas tents, staffed by local Maasai. You will have en-suite bathrooms with flush loos, flowing water and hot showers. While traditional, the camp is comfortable with large beds and private verandah’s. In the afternoon we will sample one of Africa’s greatest ecosystems. For these five full days, we will focus on showing you the best of the Masai Mara and this will include tracking the migration and getting to the heart of the action. You will be taken out each morning at first light. We will have Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles with roof top hatches and large windows from which to photograph. Brackets, braces and clamps can be fixed onto the rails on the vehicles for tripod heads and flash brackets. Everything is designed to aid your photographic enjoyment.
Day 7 Nairobi, Kenya
After a last morning game drive, we return to camp for a hearty brunch before departing back to Nairobi via road for a drop of at the airport. This concludes the safari. Most of the international flights depart in the early evening and this fits with most connections. This is unfortunately the end of the tour and another special package from C4 Photo Safaris.

André grew up in the African bush with literally one hand on his binoculars and the other hand on the camera. An avid birdwatcher at that young age, he was given his first SLR in 1990. The passion of birding turned into one of photography and in 2004 Andre co-founded C4 Photo Safaris with Shem Compion.
