The lake offers fantastic views over the hills of the Valley and is equally bountiful in flamingos as Lake Nakuru. It offers visitors beautiful sights of hot springs, geysers and landscapes. Every moment, the lake water is changing it's colour as the waters of the lake contain the blue‐ green algae and that attract thousands of flamingoes.

    Masai Mara
    Maasai Mara national reserve covers an area of 1510 sq kms. Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This refers to the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti, north to the Mara in search of water and pasture.

Animals resident in the reserve include all of the big five, gazelles, buffalo, black rhino, cheetahs, hippo, crocodiles, jackals, hyenas, antelopes, leopards and many more. More than 500 species of birds have been recorded such as ostrich, lark, sunbird, and several species of birds of prey.

    Can you provide more info on the accommodations at the various locations that will be visited? And are we able to rent Canon's super-telephoto lenses for this trip, like the 400mm f/2.8 or 500mm f/4.0? Thanks

    Hi,

    I'm excited to see this and would like to seek some clarifications.

    I had been wanting to capture the aerial view on the migration of the wildebeest and zebra. As seen in the photos in your posters, 4 outta 6 of them are all aerial shots. As such, are we expecting aerial vantage point to create images that is similar to what were featured in your posters? Or are the photos in your posters just-for-advertising purposes, as based on the text of your posters, it seems like there is only land tour, which is not in agreement with 4 outta 6 of the featured photos? Please kindly clarify.

    In addition, do you have more photos of your recent trip based on the stated itinerary to showcase what we can expect or capture if we join this tour? (that is on the assumption that the aerial photos seen in your posters are NOT what we will be getting for this trip/itinerary)

    Lastly, just like Chinbk, I am also keen to know if the Canon super telephotos will be made available for participants (with or without additional cost?). Please do not just PM chinbk, possible for you to clarify in this thread so it helps others (like me) who's looking at this thread?

    Thank you and looking forward to your prompt reply!

    Hi there,

    The photos are not stock photos. These photos are taken last year, and they are the actual photos taken by the instructor at high ground and as well as taken during the Hot-Air Balloon trip which is an optional tour at around USD450. We cannot promise you if you will get the same set of photos, as this is really depending on our luck on the weather, animals, and terrian conditions during the trip. There is no fix route to go, we will go to where the animals are going.

    There are some costs which is not inclusive that we are aware of, are listed in the CIA website. Most of the hotels that we are staying are of 4 star hotel rating and of course we normally do not over-promised our participants, so we just listed as deluxe hotels/lodge in case of any unforeseen changes.

    We are checking internally if we are able to rent the Telephoto lenses as it is limited in the inventory and subjected to management approval. There are 3rd party lense rental company that does the super tele lens rental for 12 days at around $850.

    The photos taken are of range around 200-400mm as listed in website for your reference. A good range of up to 600mm is recommended if you preferred closeup.

    I hope that the information is sufficent for your consideration.

    Thanks.

    Joseph Mak
