The Wild Eye Mara workshop signals the return to a dedicated, focused and inspirational wildlife photography experience with one goal in mind – to make you a better wildlife photographer. Wild Eye safaris are already at the forefront of wildlife photographic travel and in-the-field education but this workshop is the first in a range of new courses and workshops which will, once again, change the way you approach your own wildlife photography. Through a combination of dedicated wildlife photography presentations, a workshop manual, small group of photographers and the exclusivity of the Wild Eye Mara Camp you can be assured of a photography workshop that will leave you not only inspired, but filled with new knowledge, ideas and the desire to better your craft.
And, all of this in the Masai Mara, the greatest wildlife reserve in the world!
The Maasai Mara covers some 1,510 km2 (580 sq miles) in south-western Kenya, divided into two sections, the Greater Masai Mara and the Mara triangle, both of which border the Serengeti in Tanzania. The Wild Eye Mara Camp is situated on the banks of the Mara River in the South Western section of the Mara Triangle.
The Masai Mara Wildlife Photography Workshop takes place at the Wild Eye Mara Camp, which consists of large, dome style canvas tents, with an additional ‘lounge’ area with a clothes, and suitcase rack. In this section of the tent, there is also a flushing toilet, and a separate shower tent nearby. The rooms can either be made up for singles, or for a couple if you are sharing, but each guest will have their own tent. The beds are incredibly comfortable, with a mahogany wooden base.
With our now semi permanent site we were able to add some amazing new additions to the Enkishui Camp. The most notable being the addition of a new lounge tent, which consist of authentic local Kenyan furniture and bar overlooking the magical Mara river.

The Mara, also known as 'big sky country', regularly delivers some of the most dramatic sunrises and sunsets you'll see anywhere else in the world. A 24 – 70mm wide angle lens works well for these wider landscape type shots, or simply to showcase animals in their environment.
A 70 – 200mm is always handy to allow you to capture animals in their environment, but also to grab when animals tend to be a little closer to the vehicles. It is a great lens to have on hand out in the field and always useful. From sunrise/sunset, animals in their environments to action shots, this is an all purpose lens you will not regret keeping in your bag.
Using a longer focal length like a 200-400mm or even a fixed 400mm / 500mm allows one to get those unique close up images, and in the wide open spaces, to showcase some great depth of field shooting at lower apertures.
