Wildlife photographers are the most passionate coterie of content creators. They can hound their favourite animals for hours, waiting patiently for the right moment to take that perfect shot. Hobbyists and wildlife lovers share in this passion. As a result, they need to sharpen their photography skills to take appealing photos and tell the wildlife story.
Versatile School of Photography has designed hands-on photography in the wild classes. The programme gathers professional photographers and travel and photography hobbyists every month and takes them on wildlife tours around the country at a fee. During these adventurous travels, people learn more about wildlife and how to photograph them in their natural habitats and share their stories. The class also incorporates local tour guides who want to acquire professional photography skills. They learn how to take great photos, share, showcase their work in a global market, sell their work, display it in a virtual art gallery and get a chance to receive awards. Wildlife conservancy is at the heart of this programme, and we aim to create and propagate awareness through our photography in the wild classes.
In addition to this, Versatile Adventures is now offering a new destination in the heart of the Maasai Mara where travel enthusiasts can concurrently work, live, unwind and have an escapade. The exclusive destination boasts five houses with a capacity of 4 people each and will be open for bookings from June 2022. The houses dubbed ‘Olakira Homes’ offer exceptional luxury bungalows in a private gated destination within the renowned Maasai Mara Game Reserve, home to the great wildebeest migration. They are located 500 metres from the Talek gate, lavishly furnished 2-bedroom en suite facilities with private balconies and outdoor gazebos for breathtaking sundowners. Each of the five houses has the name of five of the most famous Leopards in the Mara; Bahati, Lorain, Luluka, Split Nose, and Jirime. Travellers can now attend photography in the wild classes and enjoy their stay at Olakira! For bookings, visit us at Village Market 2nd Floor or call/Whatsapp +254721330767 or +254722619535.
