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, from the vibrant colors of the lilac-breasted roller to the delicate head feathers of the crowned crane.
A Kenya photography safari provides endless opportunities for photographers of any skill level to capture stunning close ups and impressive landscape shots. Check out these amazing Kenya safari photos from Nat Hab’s Vice President of Adventure Strategy & Finance Dain Lewis!
