Kenya’s Great Migration is one of the most photogenic events on the planet. The migration includes vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and elephants, as well as lions and leopards hunting their prey. Spectacular bird life is everywhere as well, from the vibrant colors of the lilac breasted roller to the delicate head feathers of the crowned crane.

A photography safari in Kenya provides endless opportunities for photographers of any skill level to capture stunning close ups and impressive landscape shots. Scroll down to check out some amazing safari photos by Nat Hab’s Dain Lewis, who recently returned from our Kenya Migration Photo Safari.
