The first time that I visited Africa, I knew that it would be in my heart forever. Growing up, I obsessed over movies that took place on the mysterious continent of Africa! Tarzan and Hatari fueled my imagination as a child, and I desperately wished for the opportunity to venture alongside Marlin Perkins on one of his many quests in search of the world’s wildlife. It should have been Jeff and Marlin and not Marlin and Jim! To say that I was always drawn to Africa would be an understatement. I longed to visit Africa in the way other people long to meet their future selves or that first cup of coffee in the morning!
After nearly 40 years of dreaming, the moment that I finally stepped foot in Africa, I realized that it was better than I ever could have imagined. I felt deeply connected with this beautiful continent immediately, and before long I was spending more time each year in Africa than I was at home. Africa has never once disappointed on the hundreds of game drives I have experienced throughout the seventeen times that I have traveled to Africa. This is my favorite experience to share with people. It is a personal experience for me, and I do believe that everyone can find a little piece of themselves when visiting. I have done this safari itinerary many times and often back to back, and not once has it been the same and not once has been less than astonishing, and I can’t wait to see what we discover this year!
“Africa – You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the Hand of God. You watch the slope lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the midday heart, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.”
Jodi Picoult (American author)
This safari is designed to give you a unique look into the beauty that is Kenya. Together, we will go out and explore in the most beautiful season of the year so that you can experience breathtaking views that genuinely cannot be witnessed anywhere else. As we venture out into the iconic Amboseli and Maasai Mara, I will act as your guide and instructor to ensure that you not only take amazing pictures and see incredible wildlife but also gain knowledge of what you are bearing witness to. You will not only leave this experience with beautiful photos to show your friends and family, but you will also leave with the unforgettable memories of an experience that cannot be compared to any other. Even though this particular journey lasts nearly two weeks, you will find that the time always moves a little too quickly because there is so much beauty to take in every single day. From sunrise to sunset, Kenya was made to be photographed. Every moment in Africa is precious, and by the end of it, you may never want to leave.
My advice is to prepare to fall in love with Kenya. She has a way of gripping your heart and never letting go.
