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.

Steve will be on hand throughout your safari to help you translate the beauty of the Mara into photographs you’ll treasure forever.
