Most photogenic places and creatures of East Africa can be taken in in a very short period. At a private floodlit waterhole in the Aberdares, you shoot elephants and buffalo at ridiculously close range. Dropping into the epic Great Rift Valley, you can take one of the world’s best boat trips for waterbird photography. If you’ve seen a mind-blowing photo of African Fish-Eagle, this is probably where it was taken. Moving south into Tanzania, you can visit the legendary Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti. This is the Africa of National Geographic, where countless wildebeest litter the landscape, and when it is easy to find the big cats doing something interesting. The talk includes Rwanda’s Volcans National Park for the wondrous Mountain Gorilla.
