The plains of the Masai Mara have been immortalised in countless films and nature documentaries over the years, from Sydney Pollack’s 1985 classic Out of Africa to the BBC’s long-running Big Cat Diary series. The natural riches on offer here are no secret, but on this exclusive safari you’ll be able to experience them from an entirely new perspective, courtesy of esteemed photojournalist and world traveller Ami Vitale. As a Nikon Ambassador, multiple World Press Photo award-winner and President of the National Geographic Advisory Board, Ami’s considerable experience will be invaluable during your time in the Mara. Officially one of the most badass women in the world, Ami has worked in war zones, lived in mud huts, contracted malaria and visited more than 100 countries over the course of her career; she’ll be on hand throughout this spectacular safari, helping you to craft images that will set you apart from the crowd.
