Sky Safari Photograpy Tour

Travel is an exciting journey made up of anticipation, unforgettable moments, and thrilling experiences. A trip to East Africa is all this and so much more. 

We're delighted to announce a special SkySafari photography tour, hosted by award-winning wildlife photographer, cameraman and Leica Ambassador - Luke Massey. Luke will help you understand the intricacies of freezing moments in time and the practical skills needed to capture each moment from one adventure to the next.

The Photography Tour: Dec 9-16, 2017

The new photography tour, on board SkySafari Connoisseur, is a 7-night safari highlighting the best of Kenya's national parks. It is a luxury, stress-free experience that enables guests to enjoy direct transfers and avoid multiple stops on busy scheduled flights. 

Luke will accompany the  group throughout, offering expert advice on photography to ensure that guests not only expand their skills but return with an impressive portfolio of images to treasure. Throughout the SkySafari participants will receive professional tutorials on understanding the importance of light, framing and understanding the subject - all in a relaxed atmosphere. 

The Safari Itinerary:
The itinerary begins with one night at Hemingways, a boutique hotel neighbouring the Nairobi National Park. From Nairobi, SkySafari flies to Elsa's Kopje in Meru, then to Loisaba Tented Camp in Laikipia, before landing in the Maasai Mara for a stay at the Sand River Masai Mara. Guests spend two nights at each of these stunning properties. 

SkySafari by Elewana offers a taste of the best safari experiences in Kenya, coupled with luxury accommodation, gourmet dining, incredible game viewing and private aircraft transfers. SkySafari passengers enjoy business class seating, a fast-track airport experience, butler service at all of the properties, as well as only one check-in and one check-out during the seven-night journey.
