2016/2017 Special Kenya safari for Photographic clubs

2

Brief and cost

This safari is specially designed with the photographer in mind whom is visiting for his/her first African adventure. We completely understand that budget is a key factor these days for all individuals hence the above Kenyan safari was tailored to accommodate as many avid and keen photographers as possible. This is not to say that you will not go to some of the nicest places in Kenya. The main reason I Alexander Rostocil started the budget safari was to give everyone a chance to come to Kenya for a photographic safari and not only the wealthy. We all know how expensive camera equipment is leave alone flights and a safari. Some safaris these days on the net are over 6,000 usd which is beyond reach for many especially if it is a husband a wife team that are coming or a family of 4.  In addition to this I am offering every Camera Club for every 10 paying clients 2 of their team leaders, teachers completely free excluding international flights. I truly believe that all whom have a passion for photography should have a chance to enjoy it. The cost comes to 2150 usd for 2016 and 2225 usd for 2017. This is based on per person sharing. Please contact me on alex@dianibeach.com for any further information or general questions that you may have.
