'In 20 years if nothing is done, there will be no Lions left in Kenya' Neils Morgensen, Mara Predator Conservation Program.

Niels Mogensen, Senior Programme Scientist at the Mara Predator Conservation Programme, and award-winning natural history photographer and film maker Trai Anfield invite you to join them on a truly unique wildlife photography safari and survey experience, focussing on the two most iconic predators of Kenya’s Maasai Mara: lion and cheetah.  Leopard will also be likely, alongside the prey species that make up this complex ecosystem.  Should African wild dog be in the vicinity during our stay, then of course we will prioritise this species too.
