Mid-Season Travel to East Africa: A Photographer’s Paradise

For travelers who want to witness and capture the endless amounts of diversity across the East African landscape, travel with the Elewana Collection during the months of April, May, October, and November. You’ll witness dramatic skies that make for incredible landscape photography, admire wildflowers in full blossom that attract a kaleidoscope of butterflies and view lush vegetation that brings new life to animals in the area. 

Across Kenya and Tanzania, there is so much diversity to admire. From the semi-arid landscape of the northern properties in Meru, Loisaba, and Lewa to the rolling savannahs of the Masai Mara and the endless plains of Amboseli, each has its own unique charm that leaves travelers in awe. Enjoy the dramatic highlands of the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania to the vast expanse of the Serengeti plains and the undulating valleys and swamps of Tarangire. 

East Africa offers dramatic landscapes for your camera’s lens to witness, and even amateur photographers can’t go wrong. Views that go on for miles, magnificent backdrops that include Mt. Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro, and the depth of the African sky all make for a stunning composition. Whether it’s an endless blue ocean with wispy white clouds or a dark dramatic storm rolling in over the Serengeti, each day can bring something different. The lighting also makes the perfect shot, be it early morning before the first rays of light touch the grassy plains laden with dew and the skies are a pale turquoise or during an African sunset that taints everything with its soft golden glow just before it disappears below the horizon.

Photographers that are enamored with traditions and cultures should look no further than the variety of tribes that reside in East Africa, each unique and splendid in their own way. In Kenya and Tanzania, you’ll find 44 tribes and 120 distinct ethnic groups, most of which are recognized as the colorful Maasai tribe with their elaborate beadwork and distinctive shukas. It’s a cultural experience you’ll want to capture on camera.
