Kara tribe bringing in the goats through a dust storm. This is one of the most incredible places on the planet to visit. The experiences I have had there are truly unbelievable. They are stories I will share the most when I am sitting in the rocking chair.

This was an incredible day walking with the wildlife in Nivasha with Ellen Goldblatt and Terri. This baby giraffe was only 3 weeks old.

You can almost feel the dust. There are no words to describe this experience. 2016 will be my 12th season in the Mara for the migration and I am already looking forward to it again!

Rendille Tribe in Northern Kenya. There is something still very magical about Northern Kenya, one of the last remaining traditional tribal area's. I will be spending about a month up in this region this may.

I love the gathering of the large herds of zebra in the migration. This past year the migration season in the Mara was incredible. They have been on the move to Tanzania and will soon be in the Ndutu area (southern Serengeti) where approximately 750 wildebeest will drop their caves in a span of 3 weeks. This is one of the best times of year to be in Tanzania and I am excited to continuing following one of the greatest migrations on earth. http://www.pipermackayphotography.com/…/tanzania-and-kenya…/
