Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met by an &Beyond representative and assisted onto your transfer to Wilson Airport for your scheduled SafariLink flight to Kichwa Airstrip. On arrival at the airstrip, you will be met by a representative from &Beyond Bateleur Camp and transferred to the lodge. At the lodge you will be met by Andrew Schoeman, Photographic Specialist Guide, who will be at your disposal for the duration of the journey.
&Beyond’s photographic safaris are personalised journeys designed specifically for photography enthusiasts and accompanied by an &Beyond Photographic Specialist Guide. These expert guides, who are former &Beyond rangers, use their extensive experience in wildlife, birding and landscape photography to help you get the shot of a lifetime by providing advice on shutter speed, lenses, angles, lighting and so much more. Combining their understanding of animal behaviour with their photography skills, they will help you plan each step of your safari.
Blessed with an astounding year-round concentration of animals and the climax of the Great Migration, Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve provides an unsurpassed wildlife experience. Covering an area of 1 510 km2, the Masai Mara is a land of breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife, and endless plains. The Reserve is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise with abundant elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion and cheetah alongside the migratory wildebeest and zebra. Leopards are frequently encountered, endangered black rhino find retreat in dense thickets, and large rafts of hippo and enormous crocodiles are found in the Mara River. The Mara is also home to over 450 bird species. Situated in the &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Private Concession, which neighbours the Masai Mara, &Beyond Bateleur Camp offers world-class accommodation in the African bush. Meaning “head of the elephant” in Kiswahili, Kichwa Tembo is located on private land leased from Maasai landlords in the remote western Mara – almost exclusively explored by fly-in guests. In addition to the excellent concentration of animals, Kichwa Tembo lies directly in the path of Africa’s spectacular Great Migration.
Spend the day roaming the Mara in search of the perfect image, or set up and wait for the perfect moment. Back at the lodge browse through your photos while Andrew shares tips and ideas.
