The riches of Kenya’s Masai Mara ecosystem and the skills of former BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Steve Winter are a match made in heaven. Steve is one of the world’s foremost big cat experts, having travelled across the globe to capture spectacular images of wild felines. The lions, leopards and cheetahs of the Masai Mara are no strangers to the camera, but with one of the world’s most esteemed wildlife photographers by your side, you may well return from Kenya with a photographic legacy that sets you apart from the crowd. It’s not just predators that will wander in front of your lens either – keep your eyes peeled on the bush for sightings of elephants, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo and a host of other iconic African animals, including an array of antelope species. Steve will be on hand throughout your safari to help you translate the beauty of the Mara into photographs you’ll treasure forever.
Steve led his first trip with NWS in 2018: an 8-day journey in search of the jaguar in the Brazilian Pantanal, the world’s largest wetland. Our clients were blessed with a great number of sightings, and had nothing but praise for their photographic guide. Here's what one guest had to say about his safari:
The trip was fantastic. Steve is such a great teacher and human being. His knowledge of jaguars seemed limitless, and his stories were just as amazing to listen to as his teaching.
