A wildlife photographer's dream locale

Summit Kenya

Kenya is one of the best places on earth to see wildlife, and a trip into its vast savannah, and towering rainforest amongst thousands of animals is an experience unlike anything else. Next winter, join Summit Workshops on an amazing journey into the heart of Africa to explore the diverse ecosystems and animal species Kenya has to offer.


Our all-inclusive Summit Kenya workshop will begin in Nairobi where we will drive to Aberdare National Park, a stunning cloud forest known for its abundant elephant populations and rare black leopards. 

After searching for wildlife and trekking through the spectacular highland landscape, we will continue to the Ol Pejeta Reserve beneath the towering slopes of Mount Kenya. Internationally recognized for its rhino conservation efforts (home to the only living northern white rhinos on the planet), Ol Pejeta is home to lions, cheetahs, giraffes, elephants, wild dogs, and more. From Ol Pejeta, our journey will take us north to Lake Nakuru to search for groups of tree climbing lions, and west into the Kakamega Forest, Kenya’s only remnant of a vast rainforest that once stretched across the entire continent. From the rainforest, we venture south along the shores of Lake Victoria and into the Masai Mara, the epitome of African wildlife safaris. By pairing luxurious safari lodges with some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities in Kenya, we are excited to invite you on this exceptional journey!
