Kenya with Jeff Wendorff

Africa, what a place! I’ve been visited 17 times and last year I spent more days in Africa than I did in my apartment, and she never disappoints. If you are like me; you grew up watching Tarzan, loved the circus and the zoo, Marlin Perkins was a hero, Hatari was an incredible movie, and you dreamt of being in Africa. I can assure you that the real thing is even more amazing than you have imagined. I love this Kenya Safari! I’ve done this exact safari 4 times and can’t wait to share that with you! Once you experience a Kenya Safari, you will love it too! And of course, You Will Be Amazed!

I am so excited to be going back for a Kenya Safari in the “green” season. It is the most beautiful time of the year and the plains are a verdant green and not the browns of fall. We will visit the stunning Amboseli National Park, and if the “shy mountain” Kilimanjaro allows, we’ll see vast herds of elephants along with that iconic peak. From there we continue our safari and explore the fabulous Masai Mara National Park. We’ll be looking for the Big Five (elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, and buffalo) and everything in between. And that is just the highlights!

Sabi Sands South Africa with Karen Blackwood

I invite you to come on our 5-day Big 5 wildlife safari in Sabi Sands, South Africa, famous for incredible, relaxed leopards. We are in the home of the Big 5 and adjacent to Kruger National Park in South Africa without fences between. 13 leopards call our traverse area home, as well as 3 lion prides. Elephants, buffalo, rhino, wild dogs, zebra, giraffe, cheetah–they are all frequent visitors to the water hole and we’ll see them going about their daily lives in the bush on game drives. You’ll go home with once in a lifetime memories, and one in a million shots.

Our Luxury Lodge offers spacious private bungalows with indoor/outdoor showers, a spa, pool, wine cellar, full bar, delicious meals (you were warned–bring roomy pants!), and a caring staff.

Day 1: Arrive in time for lunch, then hop on the vehicle for that perfect afternoon and evening light. We’ll stop for a Sundowner Cocktail, then we’ll do some night shots, working with other vehicles for soft sidelight and backlit shots. When we return to the Lodge after our 3 hour drive, we’ll have a cocktail and discuss the day’s sightings before we dine at candlelit tables around the blazing fire.

Day 2-4: We’ll be up early to chase that gorgeous African Golden Light on our morning drive, complete with a coffee stop at a picturesque spot. We’ll return to the Lodge after our 3-hour drive to be met with a made-to-order breakfast overlooking the waterhole. After our bush walk, we can work on Lightroom editing and photography techniques together. After lunch, we’ll head out for the evening game drive, then have cocktails and dinner by the fire again.

Day 5: We’ll say goodbye after our morning game drive and breakfast, but you’ll be back. Sabi Sands and our African wildlife will pull your heart once you leave.
