Our tour includes the two most exciting and productive photo locations: The Ngorongoro Crater is a world famous destination and World Heritage Site, offering some of the finest wildlife photography on the planet. At Lions Paw Camp we are only 15 minutes from the Crater floor, with easy access to a wide variety of wildlife with the beautiful blue green walls of the crater as our background. The crater is lush and green during this season.
Our primary destination centers around the south and central Serengeti, during prime wildebeest birthing. Nothing can prepare you for the breathtaking size, scope, and wildlife interaction of the world’s greatest ecosystem. Unlike Kenya, the Serengeti is dotted with rock kopjes offering opportunities for beautiful landscape photos as well as great wildlife. The vast plains and scattered acacia trees are home to greatest spectacle on earth. Countless wildlife shows are filmed in the same locations we visit. The vast openness of the grasslands means the daily life of a wide variety of animals is right out in the open for our cameras. Our safari is scheduled to be during the prime wildebeest migration/birthing, in one of the wildlife wonders of the world that tops every list of safari experiences. Imagine the daily interaction between an estimated 1.5 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra, and 400,000 gazelles and the big cats such as cheetah, leopard, and lion.
