African Safaris in Kenya

We offer 8-night Hosted African safaris in the Masai Mara and Bespoke African safaris in both the Masai Mara and Amboseli.
Also, guests booking the hosted safaris can add an un-hosted visit to Amboseli. We suggest Amboseli is visited first, but in contrast guests may prefer to visit after their Masai Mara safari.

We teamed up with the Zebra Plains Collection in 2017.  Resulting from this we are able to offer an African safari experience and above all, at competitive rates. Wildlife enthusiasts and photographers are catered for individually, hence ensuring joint sharing of vehicles is avoided. As a result, there is no conflict of interest between the two groups. Photography safaris are limited to 6 guests, with 2 guests per vehicle. Consequently, each photographer has a whole row in the vehicle so that shooting from either side is possible.

Zebra Plains Mara camp is a well established location almost entirely staffed by Masai people. They are, above all, friendly and helpful. The camp is completely open and is consequently visited by wildlife daily. Zebra Plains Amboseli camp is a fledgling location that is above all living up to the reputation of its sister camp. Situated in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, it is certainly well placed to deliver unforgettable sightings. Maybe large elephant herds heading to the marsh each day, or big tuskers with Kilimanjaro as a backdrop. Furthermore, in the marsh area, there are amazing bird sightings to excite guests, whether photographer or wildlife enthusiast.


Zebra Plains Collection, both Mara and Amboseli Camps, have invoked all protocols recommended by the World Health Organisation and Kenya’s Ministry of Health. The Kenyan Ministry of Tourism have inspected and approved the measures in place. The following measures have been taken in both camps:

All staff wear masks at all times in the camps

On check-in, all guests’ body temperatures are taken and all baggage is disinfected at the camp car park

Sanitizers are placed in all main areas and lounges. Both camps have spacious areas to relax guaranteeing social distancing

All surfaces are regularly disinfected by camp staff in the main areas, the kitchen and all guest rooms

Food is served plated or in family dining styles, one group at a time. No buffet service is offered

Spacious dining areas allow full social distancing

Exclusive and private safari vehicles for all guests booked by Zebra Plains

All safari vehicles are cleaned and disinfected after every use

All guest rooms and linen are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after check out.

All guests booking through the Rosemary & Ian Locock Photography website will be kept up to date on the Covid-19 situation in Kenya and the requirements for travel to Kenya.
