The Masai Mara is the most impressive natural reserve in the world in terms of landscapes, fauna and flora. This is the reason why it has served as the setting for many Hollywood productions, such as Out of Africa . The best time to visit this reserve is from July to September. Here you can photograph the largest migration of wildebeest and zebra in the world — it takes place in this park — and capture stunning sunrise and sunset shots over the African savannah. And it will be a good opportunity to go on a safari to photograph elephants, giraffes, crocodiles and lions!
Besides the park, your trip to Kenya will allow you to meet different groups of Maasai and to sympathize with them. They will introduce you to their culture, their traditions, and their way of eating. The specific attributes of the Maasai culture are the discs used to perform distensions on different parts of the body and the brightly colored fabrics. The Maasai, who have retained their culture and traditions, are however accustomed to welcoming tourists. It is therefore with pleasure that they will accept to have their picture taken performing the jumps of their traditional dances. This photographic journey will be an opportunity to immortalize an exceptional experience, be sure of it.

If you go to Peru , you will be amazed as soon as you arrive by the wonders of the Inca civilization. Machu Picchu is the emblematic place of the ancient Inca Empire. This site, which was once a sacred place, is one of the seven wonders of the world. It is undeniably one of the places that you must have seen at least once in your life.
The best time for a photo trip to Machu Picchu is from April to October. This will allow you to enjoy clear skies and intense green landscapes. Remember, however, that these dates correspond to the high season in Peru. We cannot recommend enough that you leave to visit the site early, to escape the influx of visitors. You will be able to take photos of the sunrise and enjoy a striking contrast effect. It will also be an opportunity to photograph the famous llamas of Machu Picchu. These animals are quite shy and they are more easily photographed when there are not many visitors.
