Then, we will continue our journey to Ndutu to start our first safari in the amazing reserve – home not only to the cheetahs, but also lions, giraffes, zebras, hyenas and much more. We'll turn in for the night at the Mbugani Tented Camp.




DAY 3-6 - Ndutu


Every morning, we will head out at sunrise and concentrate our efforts on tracking the cheetah families, mothers hunting every day to the feed their cubs. Thanks to our expert rangers, we will reach the best points for photography, taking into account the lighting, angle, and movement of animals. We will take advantage of the light hours in the reserve until sunset, and then we will return to the Lake Ndutu Tented Lodge for dinner and time together to get feedback on your work, a lecture or a fun conversation, time permitting. This is one of the best benefits of our photo expeditions - to be with people like yourself, guided by a pro, from morning until evening, doing what you love! Mbugani tented camp




DAY 7 - Ndutu/Serengeti


After an early breakfast, we’ll go on another safari tour in the Ndutu Nature Reserve and then proceed to the crown jewel of Africa, one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the world - The Serengeti.

During the tour, we’ll follow the herds of wildebeests and zebras in their great migration. We'll see the giraffes grazing the treetops, follow lion prides, and track the movement of the vultures circling above the action and waiting for the bounty. Mbugani central Serengeti camp.
