Trip Overview

Africa conjures up images of acacia dotted plains, herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra pursued relentlessly by their predators. Being in the right place at the right time, with the best light to capture these scenes is the essence of this safari. Join a small group led by award winning photographer and passionate conservationist Paul Goldstein, who will work tirelessly to get you the best photographic opportunities. This safari exudes style - premium tented camps within a private conservancy provide a comfortable base in an exclusive location, internal flights get you into the wilderness quickly, and vehicles are designed with photographers in mind to ensure you will always be set up for the perfect shot! Be prepared for early starts, long days and plenty of advice and enthusiasm. The exclusive Kicheche Camps are located in prime spots within the conservancies, where it is not uncommon to observe wildlife from the veranda. Wilderness fans and photographers alike will fall in love with Africa after a week at Kicheche.

Group

Paul Goldstein

Paul has guided and photographed all over the world, and has won a decent armoury of awards. His best attribute is his love of the wilderness. Spitsbergen, Antarctica and India are amongst his great loves but his abiding passion is for the Mara and he has spent a huge amount of time in Africa. Paul and his team of guides will work tirelessly to ensure you come away with the best images possible, placing huge importance on light and composition. If you feel exhausted at the end of a long day, Paul will be ready at five the next morning to get you into the perfect position to compose another shot for your wall. He always says, “if I can get you half a dozen blinding images for your house I will have done my job” - but that is only half the story. African bush tales, a seemingly limitless supply of jokes and an almost religious territorial nature over the Mara make him quite the travelling companion.

Itinerary

Map

Land Only Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Start Nairobi; morning flight to Masai Mara.

    Welcome to Kenya! We have an early morning flight from Wilson Airport to take us directly to the heart of the Mara Conservancies. Land only customers are advised to book accommodation in Nairobi the night before the tour starts, to allow for easy meeting at Wilson Airport this morning. The 45 minute flight to the Mara provides some great scenery to start our Kenyan adventure. At the airstrip, we’ll be picked up by custom built four-wheel drives for the short transfer to Kicheche Camp. The crew at Kicheche will be waiting to welcome you and help you settle into camp. After lunch, we’ll take our first afternoon game drive in the exclusive Mara conservancies to discover some of the prolific wildlife that inhabits this area. Your first game drive will end with sundowners looking across the plains.

    Premium accommodation: Kicheche Tented Camp

    Meals included:
    Lunch,
    Dinner
  • Days 2-6

    Sharpen your photography skills on the vast plains of the Masai Mara.

    Our days at Kicheche usually start early, with camp staff bringing tea, coffee, hot water and biscuits to the tent around 5am. One of the huge benefits of staying within the conservancies is that game drives start right from camp and we can be in position on the plains by first light. For photographers, this means the all-important ‘golden hour’ is always maximised. Depending on movement of the game and tips from the bush telegraph, drives can be a moveable feast. Some days we may find ourselves on a full-day safari (approx. 13 hours) whilst other days might be broken down into morning and afternoon drives. Paul and his team will try to make good calls when it comes to sightings and will always aim to be in the best position for viewing. They will be trying their hardest to ensure that photographic opportunities are frequent, but they will not be dashing around ticking off species like mainstream safari companies. Early starts are the order of the day, and we normally find some shade for lunch in a beautiful spot and to relax. Unless, that is, we come across a migration crossing or hunting cheetah! These drives are not endurance tests but a full day out on the plains can be quite tiring. They also will involve patience, as a hungry cheetah will often wait many hours before making their move.

    Meal times are a delight under the stars or in the mess tent if there is bad weather. It is the game and scenery that make this area so incredible. Camp can often have a pride of lion's close-by, and their call accompanied by the cackle of the hyena is an occasional night time companion. The property is very relaxing for those hours in the middle of the day between game drives and the haute cuisine and hot showers are a big bonus. These luxurious trappings sometimes belie the fact that the camp is right in the heart of the most prolific savannah on Earth!

    Premium accommodation: Kicheche Tented Camp

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Lunch,
    Dinner
  • Day 7

    Morning game drive; afternoon flight to Nairobi; depart Nairobi.

    This morning, we enjoy a final game drive in the wilderness followed by brunch back at camp, before packing up and taking a late afternoon flight back to Nairobi where the trip ends.

    Please speak to your Sales Consultant regarding the timings of internal flights. They can book additional post-tour accommodation in Nairobi if required.

Where a single supplement is available, paying for a single will only guarantee a room for single use. It does not necessarily mean a twin or double room will be provided for sole occupancy.

Food & Transport

Eating & Drinking

All breakfasts, 6 lunches and 6 dinners included.

At Kicheche the food is superb and with plenty of choice. Breakfasts will be taken out in the bush and so will lunch on full day drives in the Mara. Kicheche has an excellent reputation for its cuisine.

  • In the Mara hot drinks are brought to the tents each morning.

  • On return there is a large but healthy brunch (if not doing a full day's drive).
  • Tea and cakes are taken mid-afternoon before the game drive.
  • A three-course dinner is taken (weather permitting) by candlelight under the African sky.

Transportation

We use light aircraft to fly to the Mara (with a 15kg weight restriction) and 4WD vehicles in the Reserve, specifically designed for photographers. All vehicles will have beanbags. Monopods and tripods are not required.
We fly to the Mara; it makes the safari quite expensive but saves hours and hours of driving. Please note that the roads in the Mara are quite poor, especially after rain. It is not unusual on safari for you to have to push your way out of trouble on the odd occasion.

Weather & Seasonality

Weather Information

Kenya straddles the equator so showers can happen at any time of year, however the wettest period is April and May. Due to the altitude of the Masai Mara (1550m) the nighttime temperature is beautiful, cool yet not cold, although mornings can be quite chilly. Daytime temperatures can get as high as 30 degrees but with low humidity. There can be some light rains at the end of the year, but if anything this is a good thing as it cuts down the dust and brings out the colours. In the wet the roads can become difficult.

Joining Instructions

Travelling flight inclusive from London: 9 days
The group flight from London is typically a daytime flight departing and arriving the day before Day 1 of the itinerary. A night at the Tamarind Tree Hotel in Nairobi is included under these circumstances. Alternatively, we may arrive early on Day 1 before transferring to Wilson Airport for our flight to the Masai Mara. If this is the case, then we will usually spend a night at the Four Points in Nairobi at the end of the itinerary.


Flights from London
We normally use the scheduled services of British Airways (depending on availability). As flight timings and schedules change regularly we recommend you call one of our specialist sales staff or your agent to confirm up‐to‐date timings. Please note timings may change at a later date and cannot be confirmed until approximately two weeks before departure.


Travelling land only: 7 days starting and ending in Nairobi
Clients who have booked their own flights and are not on the group flights, will have to meet the group on day 1 (day 2 ex London itinerary) at Wilson Airport to join the internal flight to the Mara.

Regional Flights

The Flight Inclusive price is based on a London departure, but we are happy to tailor this to your local or regional airport. Please ask about flights from local or regional airports.

If booking regional flights other than with Exodus, you must allow a minimum connecting time (in addition to the international check-in time) of 1 hour at Gatwick, and 1.5 hours at Heathrow; this is longer than the official minimum, but baggage handling is known to be subject to delays.

Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers will be sent to you as part of our Final Joining Instructions. If you do not receive these at least a week before departure, or require them earlier please contact our office or your travel agent.

Transfers Details

Airport transfers are included for those on the group flights. Please note that transfers are not included for clients arriving on any other flight, even if Exodus has booked it. 

If you require airport transfers, you may (by prior arrangement only) be able to join the group transfer. Transfers are arranged to coincide with the arrival time of the group flight ‐ please check the group flight details 2 weeks before departure. If you do not take this transfer, or miss it, you must make your own way to the joining point at your own expense.

What to Take

Essential Equipment

In addition to your 'normal' daily clothes, you will need the following:
Torch
Sunhat
Sun cream
Soft holdhall
Daypack or soft bag (please no suitcases)
Camera
Telephoto lens (preferable)
Plenty of  memory cards
Lightweight walking shoes
Sandals (no socks with these please)
Fleece for early mornings
Very light wet weather top
Binoculars

Photography
The vehicles are designed for photographers. They are all open-roofed and open-sided with camera platforms. Bean bags are supplied so tripods are not recommended. If you do not have an IS or VR lens you might want to get one. You should be looking at minimum 400mm zoom/telephoto capability. Polariser warm ups are good for landscapes and hard drives. Memory sticks essential.

Internal flights in the destination country are subject to a weight limit of 15kg.

 

Please note:  In a move praised by conservation groups and health organisations, Kenya has taken the lead in banning the use of plastic carrier bags and certain other plastic bags. Included in the ban are the following items that travellers might carry:
▪ Duty free carrier bags
▪ General shopping bags
▪ Bin liners (sometimes used to protect luggage during rain)
▪ Dry cleaning bags (commonly wrapped around clothing)
Travellers arriving into Kenya via airports, sea ports or land borders will be required to leave any bags deemed to be on the banned list at the point of entry. Travellers will not be fined so long as they surrender any prohibited bags.

Water Included

Plastic bottles are a big issue in many countries where recycling isn’t yet widely available; they often end up in landfill sites or get burnt, both processes are harmful to the environment and we would like to reduce our impact here. For your trip we provide an alternative to single-use plastic bottles in order to reduce the amount of plastic used. This means that safe drinking water will be available throughout so all you need to do is bring a bottle to re-fill along the way. Please add this to your packing list!

Practical Information

Passport

Kenya

All nationalities require a full passport that must be valid for 6 months beyond the intended length of stay. It is your responsibility to have the correct personal documents and to obtain your own visa, if one is necessary, in accordance with the regulations of the country you are to visit. The information below is primarily for UK passport holders, and other nationalities should check with their travel agent or the relevant embassies. We are not responsible for the actions of local immigration and customs officials, whether at points of entry or otherwise, and any subsequent effects.

Visa

Kenya

Most nationalities do now require a visa for Kenya, including Britons, most EU nationals, Australians, New Zealanders, Americans and Canadians.  From the 1st January 2021 Kenyan entry visas will be exclusively issued electronically, with passengers required to obtain their e-visas before departure. For the latest information please contact your local Kenyan High Commission or Consulate.  
For information about the online application process please visit http://evisa.go.ke/evisa.html.
The cost of the visa is US$50 for a single entry visa and US$100 for an East Africa visa (valid to travel in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda).
You will need to first register to the ecitizens website (including needing a photo 500px x 500px) before you can start applying.

Vaccination

Kenya

There are no mandatory vaccination requirements. Recommended vaccinations are: Polio, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Typhoid, Hepatitis A. Malaria prophylaxis is essential and we suggest that you seek advice from your GP or travel health clinic about which malaria tablets to take. Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available for Dengue, and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take the usual precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

Travel health can often be something people forget about before going away, but a little preparation and knowledge can go a long way to help you stay fit and healthy while abroad.

Bilharzia is known to occur in some of the lakes or rivers visited on this itinerary, we therefore advise all to take advice from your guide or leader locally before venturing for a swim.

As we are not qualified to answer all your questions about travel health we strongly recommend you contact your Medical Professional or a Travel Health Clinic at least 8 weeks prior to departure for up-to-date information. Please note: vaccinations that are routinely recommended to residents of the UK, North America or Australasia are not considered to form part of the travel health advice, and you should ensure these are kept up to date where necessary.

For additional information please visit: https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries

Insurance - are you adequately covered?

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you must be fully insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs and air ambulance or helicopter rescue services where appropriate). On arrival in destination for your trip, you will be asked to present details to your leader or local representative of your policy.

If you are resident in the UK we strongly recommend the Exodus travel insurance policy, this is specifically designed to cover all activities on your trip. If arranging your own policy please ensure that you are covered for all activities that are part of the trip, optional activities that you intend to take part in and/or on high altitude itineraries, that you are covered up to the maximum altitude of the trip.

Important Information

On all guided trips

Although our leaders are well trained to deal with different capabilities, if they have any concerns about someone’s ability to safely partake in an activity, or their impact on other people’s enjoyment, we authorise them to take necessary action which, in some circumstances, may involve asking someone to miss that activity.

Although rarely enforced, by booking this trip you agree to section 14 of our Booking Conditions which clearly states that our leaders have the authority to do this. In these circumstances we will ensure anyone sitting out is safely provided for and offered alternative options where possible. Refunds will not be provided for activities missed and customers may be liable for additional costs incurred.

On all trips

In booking this trip you should be confident in your ability to participate in all activities described in these Trip Notes. If you have any doubt about your suitability you should call the Exodus office and ask to speak to one of the experts on this itinerary.

 

Every time that you travel abroad you should take the time to read the warnings in the essential information in the brochure.

Occasionally, as stated in our brochure, it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other. In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices.
