The Mara River - A place where wildlife meets conflict: in its millions. The migration is a constant dynamic. But at one point during the cycle, a major obstacle stands in the way of the momentum. At first it causes a stutter and a pause, but then the surge comes, and millions of animals cross the Mara River in one of the most spectacular wildlife scenes on earth. C4 has reserved a small, intimate and private camp in the heart of the action in perhaps the best time of year to see this phenomenon. We all know that the Mara is home to the ‘greatest show on earth’. So C4 have decided to run the best Photo safari we could muster in the heart of the greatest show. It’s simple really - find a camp in the middle of the action, book it for 6 photographers with the best photo camp operator in the business and then have C4’s professional photographers personally guide you through it all. 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. There is so much to see and photograph and with the knowledgeable C4 professional Wildlife photographers as your guides, you will always have the best positions available. You will be taken to the far flung corners of the Masai Mara, you will not only get to experience the migration, but also the beauty, freedom and wilderness of one of Africa’s greatest ecosystems.
My husband and I have just returned from a week long photography safari with C4 in the Maasai Mara. It was truly an amazing experience. We saw 5 crossings of which 4 was at the campsite were we stayed. As were our experience with previous trips with C4 the photographers that were the trip leaders were exceptional and extremely helpful. The practical organization of the trips are also of a very high standard and Minette is always very friendly and helpful with individual requests.
The best wildlife experience of a lifetime. The location of the lodge within the Masai Mara reserve adds the extra time in the morning and evenings critical for photography. A must for any person planning to visit the Mara. Three photographers per vehicle only, a huge draw card!!
Awesome! Fabulous! What more can we say? Greg & Shem, your photographic skills, incredible enthusiasm, deep knowledge & love of the African wilderness enabled our keen Aussie group to experience the best of the best in the Samburu, Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara areas. A big thank you to you both and to our friendly & knowledgeable drivers and your great team who made it all happen. It was a totally enriching experience in so many ways and one which we will cherish for many years. We plan to return soon.
