For many who have not travelled to Africa, their impressions are often of acacia dotted plains, hundreds of different bird species and herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra pursued relentlessly by their predators. This safari embodies all of those fantastic images and does it in superb style, a classic safari in a classic destination. When you only have a relatively short time in Kenya it is essential to maximize it in the reserves and not waste time travelling all over the country. Exodus' awarding winning resident photographer Paul Goldstein has his own brand of safari. His mantra is simple, do the time at the coal face and the rewards will follow, so be prepared for early starts, long days and plenty of advice and enthusiasm. Any wilderness fan or photographer will be particularly attracted by this safari.

All breakfasts, 6 lunches and 6 dinners. At Kicheche the food is superb, very tasty and with plenty of choice. Breakfasts will be taken out in the bush and so will lunch on full day drives in the Mara. Kicheche has an excellent reputation for its cuisine. Typical meals In the Mara hot drinks are brought to the tents each morning. Freshly baked biscuits and a breakfast consisting of fruit, cakes, bacon, sausage, egg, juice and coffee/tea is taken out on the plains. On return there is a large but healthy brunch (if not doing a full day's drive). Tea and cakes are taken mid afternoon before the game drive. A three-course dinner is taken (weather permitting) by candlelight under the African sky. Vegetarians are well catered for but please inform us before departure of any special dietary requests.
