The Masai Mara Reserve on the border of kenya and Tanzania is recognized as one of the top locations for wildlife photographers in Africa.
This river crossing photo is a good example of why it is so popular. There is a backdrop of beautiful landscape, a selection of Hippos , Wildebeest, Zebras , Topi , Elephants and Crocodiles all in one photo.
To the left out of frame we had just been photographing Leopard and 5 minutes drive away we were later in the afternoon filming a pride of Lions.
After visiting 5 African countries and many other great wildlife reserves the Masai Mara remains my favourite.
Best time of year to visit: Late August , September, early October when the 2 million plus wildebeeste are visiting on the annual migration.
Best photographic travel company to book with: The team at www.wild-eye.co.za
