1. Amboseli National Park, Kenya
Want the most picturesque view of Kilimanjaro? Then this is the place for you. If you are lucky enough, the clouds will uncover the largest freestanding mountain in the world and you can get some famous African trees and the mountain in the same shot.
2. African Safari Car (We like Amboseli or the Seregenti)
In a lot of safaris, you can’t get out of the car. But obviously, you still want to capture cool pictures of the animals and yourself. Having someone take a photo of you from further back in the car while you stick your head out the window or the top of the car makes for some beautiful shots. Get creative with the safari car at the stops that you can get out at for more rustic safari looking shots.
3. Arusha, Tanzania
Arusha is a small town that has beautiful views, delicious food and great spots for photos. It is cool to take a break from all the animals and visit the wonderful people. While you are there check out the beautiful boutique hotels with swimming pools of the best views.
4. Serengeti, Kenya
Get out of your car, and take pictures in the great fields of the Serengeti. Make sure you get there for sunset or sunrise so you can capture the beautiful red and orange sky colors. You’ll see a lot of animals including lions in the Serengeti, and if you are lucky you will see leopards and cheetahs.
5. Giraffe Manor, Nairobi
If you are feeling fancy, and have a bigger budget, stay a night in the Giraffe Manor in Kenya. You’ll get some epic photos and interactions with giraffes and might even have your breakfast stolen right off your plate!
6. Visit a Masai Village
The Masai people are prevalent in both Kenya and Tanzania, and show their culture with lots of jewelry and bright vibrant colors. Meeting them and exploring their village is an amazing experience. A lot of villages encourage and want you to take pictures of their beautiful people. Just make sure you ask before you do it.
7. Glamping in the Serengeti
Camp if you dare! Getting some epic shots in front of your tent or from inside your tent is an epic way to capture the safari experience from beginning to end. Just be on the lookout for lions and hyenas who like to brush up against your tent at night! Surely in no time, you will fall in love with this close to the wild glamping experience.
