Photography Safari

Nothing is as captivating for a photographer as a tribes man or woman fully dressed in his/her traditional regalia. This is the reason we combine our cultural safaris with photography. These are moments and experiences that have to be captured and documented, as they will not last for a long time. Our tour into Northern Kenya offers you just this experience in the most natural setting to be found in this region.
