I have recently returned from Kenya after hosting the very first Exclusive Amboseli & Lake Nakuru Safari.
- My thoughts going into it: nervous to be quiet frank.
The month of April is Kenya’s long rains period, and prior to our arrival, areas in Kenya were flooding. Their long rains had arrived a whole month earlier and there were major rains during May which continuted into April.
I spent a lot of time on social platforms looking at images & videos coming out of the areas areas we were about to visit, namely Amboseli National Park & Lake Nakuru. They were WET! So wet that it didn’t even look like the same reserves that I had visited merely months before..
After our first afternoon safari in the Amboseli, I honestly thought that the safari was going to be a dull one after experiencing a down pour like I’ve never seen before. If we could see 5 meters in front of us, it was a lot.
In saying this, rain does add incredible value to images, but the type of rain that we experienced on day 1, where it creates a curtain in front of your subject, is not ideal.
- My thoughts on our departure: success!!!
Despite the very wet and rainy conditions, we were blessed with incredible sightings, photographic opportunities and my word, a variety of mind blowing colours!
The two reserves looked very different which was great for many reasons but mainly because it was like visiting the respective reserves for the very first time. Martha, a guest who joined me on this safari has traveled into the Amboseli & Lake Nakuru many times before, will back me on this one.
Have a look though the mixed gallery of images below from the recent safari:
Thank you for taking the time to look through the gallery! As you would see above my 3 great guests (another major advantage of this safari) & I were blessed with spectacular game viewing and magical photographic opportunities.
The rains brought the colours and colour is exactly what we as photographers want, need and should wish for!
SO… if the image gallery you looked through & all the above is what you want, need and wish for…
