The plains of the Masai Mara have been immortalised in countless films and nature documentaries over the years, from Sydney Pollack’s 1985 classic Out of Africa to the BBC’s long-running Big Cat Diary series. The natural riches on offer here are no secret, but on this exclusive safari you’ll be able to experience them from an entirely new perspective, courtesy of esteemed photojournalist and world traveller Ami Vitale.
