Kenya Photo Safari Amboseli 5 Days
Kenya photo safari Amboseli 5 Days takes you one of the best wildlife photography destinations in Kenya. Photography of elephants in their natural habitat with the Mount Kilimanjaro backdrop. Photograph the lions and cheetahs too in the dusty plains. In the recent past there has been an expansion of the water pans creating conducive conditions for the growth of algae which attracts the lesser flamingos giving you pink hues with magnificent photography backgrounds. On Kenya photo safari Amboseli 5 Days Early mornings and late evenings gives you amazing sunrise and sunset photography opportunities. Close to the ponds and swamps the flamingoes and the golden reflection of sun in the water give breath taking photography opportunities. On land the zebras, wildebeest and elephants are leaving the swamps to get to higher altitudes where the soil is more fertile offering nutrient packed plants in return. This migration stirs dust and with the falling sun it becomes a perfect setup for silhouette photography, thus spending Kenya photo safari Amboseli 5 Days will give you countless possibilities. The cats are also waking from their slumber and becoming active giving you some big cat photography moments as well. This is replayed again early in the morning as these wonderful beasts retreat back to the swamps in the morning for water and also to munch on the swamp grass. The swamps are simply an oasis in a very hot semiarid ecosystem. Amboseli photography safari gives you countless opportunities due to the varied eco tones within a small ecosystem. Kenya photo safari Amboseli 5 Days cannot be complete without visiting the pleistine lake Amboseli. River Pangani used to drain its water into this Lake but with the eruption of the Mount Kilimanjaro, it was cut off and today the lake is just a dry bed that only becomes inaccessible during the wet season from March to May. In this lake you get the opportunity to photograph them as they walk in a file heading to the swamps. Giraffes also pass the through the Lake with the hills and clouds creating dramatic monochrome photography setups. Amboseli wildlife photography safaris also is a perfect place to photograph the big tuskers in Africa.
