Join us on a 11 day photo safari in the Masai Mara focusing on apex predators like lions, leopards, and cheetahs and then on to Amboseli for huge tusker elephants against the scenic background of Mt Kilimanjaro.
“Book this guide!!! Randy was my guide for our February 2021 trip and he was a great guide and resource. Not only did I obtain 'National Geographic' quality photos under his watchful eye, we learned so much about the Mara and the animals. What I've learned from Randy in one week, I will apply back in the States. People...book one of his photo safari tours and you will not be dissappointed.”

What can I say about Randall Ball Photography, Masai Mara Safari…Amazing! The entire trip was well planned and quite an adventure. Randall has thought of everything to make this experience smooth and seamless, from arrival in Kenya to departure. On Safari, Randy was extremely knowledgeable in his guidance on how to capture beautiful photos and his recommendations on gear prep.. The animals we captured in photos and the thrill of being so close I will never forget. Hands down an experience of a lifetime, no doubt I will be making this trip again.
“Words can hardly explain this experience. Special thanks to our expedition team leader, Randall Ball Photography. For any photographers out there that have always wanted to go to Africa, I totally recommend his tours!”

Firstly I'd like to say that Randall is the absolute ideal leader / instructor; he is knowledgeable about his craft, and intuitive about art and people, he has a great way of leading a group, without being overbearing, he always put the other photographers first never worrying about his own shots, he was very organized so I never felt the stress of travel, it was like someone else was doing all of the hard work!
The accommodations and meals were fantastic. And I feel that Randall put a great deal of effort into choosing locations that would create memorable experiences, not just great photos.
Additionally, and probably most important for me, is that because I am not a photographer I notice that I never felt excluded. I can imagine that there are many photographers with spouses or partners who would love to go along with them but are intimidated by joining a photography group. I have told everyone I know that if they have a opportunity to travel on one of these kind of trips, you don't have to be a photographer to go along.
It was interesting to note as well that Randall volunteered his " off duty" time to help all the photographers look through their images and do some training with editing.
My husband is so thrilled with the images that he got, that we almost can't imagine ever traveling without Randall again!!
“This is THE photo Safari YOU want to be on! Randy will teach you everything there is to know about capturing the perfect photo of any animal you encounter while on Safari AND making you feel SAFE while doing it! My BUCKET LIST adventure was done under the watchful eye of a true photographic professional and I can’t stop telling everyone about it!
Thank You Randy for an adventure of a lifetime!!”

Randy was a wonderful instructor and very easy to learn from. I was definitely pushed out of my comfort zone physically and well as creatively. The things I have been learning about photography finally started to "gel' with Randy.
"This was truly the 'trip of a lifetime." It exceeded my expectations in every regard. The trip was well organized, the transportation/logistics of getting in/out of Kenya was perfect and effortless, the accommodations were excellent (again, exceeded my expectations), and best of all, having the opportunity to learn from Randy was invaluable. I feel like I made significant progress in my photography from day 1 to day 8, and feel much more confident in my skills and technique for future wildlife photography adventures. No negatives at all - felt well prepared in terms of gear to bring, what to expect both in the camp and on the drives."
