Description

Tanzania, Africa – March 4th – 13th, 2022

This immersive safari with McKay Photography Academy has been set up for those that are looking fo a new unique adventure within Tanzania. 

This world-class wildlife safari is further complemented by time in Ndutu Safari Lodge. 

Join David McKay with our expert Tanzanian guides (personal friends and chosen by us) for a very exciting, very special, adventure that will be more than you can ever imagine!

The Wildlife

Tanzania Africa, without a doubt, is one of the premier wildlife safari destinations in the world. This tour is set during the prime Migration period of the Maasai Mara river crossing where thousands of Wildebeest and Zebra risk everything to cross the crocodile-infested waters of the Maasai Mara between Kenya and Tanzania!

Lions, Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra, Leopard, Hippo, Cape Buffalo, Rhino, and MUCH MORE are ALL possibilities to not only see and photograph but to watch in action.

As we are based in the heart of the prime of the Serengeti, we have access to locate the best wildlife the world has to offer. You WILL see wildlife and you WILL be blown away at it all. Words are not adequate to be able to describe what you will feel as you watch and photograph in this incredible place. 

Working with our personally selected group of guides we have worked with in the past, we will have the best of the best when it comes to scouts and knowledge on hand to get us to where the action is. We will leave early morning and come back to camp late. This is NOT a run-of-the-mill tour. This is a truly premier experience dedicated to getting you to the wildlife, and in the best positions possible to photograph it. 

Accommodations and Food

It is hard to believe that you will go to Africa and actually gain weight!  BUT YOU WILL!  Why? We have amazing personal chefs at our camps creating 5-star dining experiences all while we are in the middle of the Serengeti!  If you have any dietary restrictions, it is no problem at all as long as we know in advance. You will find that not only will you love the atmosphere of eating together in our dining tent, food prepared, and you will also find the food exceptional!   Also available is the “bar tent”.  After a full day out wildlife viewing, you will come to love the tent with a bar set up and beautiful sofas, and chairs to sit and gaze out at the Serengeti from.  

After dinner, sit by a fire and watch the sun sink below the horizon, as we all talk of the days adventures! 

Our “Nyumba” camps are private camps set up with beautiful large tents. Now when we say tent, we do not mean a “tent” as in American terms. Rather a beautiful canvas accommodation, with full beds and Tempurpedic mattresses in them, as well as a sink and toilet! It takes the word “glamping” to a new level!
