PUT ME IN MY PICTURE

IN THE MASAI MARA - The Tourist Poster


IT'S SO EASY TO GET MORE 

FROM YOUR PHOTO SAFARI 

AT SAROVA MARA

JUST ADD THESE "BIG-4"

TO THE "BIG-5" ANIMALS

YOU WANT TO SEE!




1.You might think it's great  enough just to have pictures of the "Big Five" wildlife.
But who took the picture?  
2. Put yourself in the picture for family and friends to see you filming the lion fight.
But how do you get the most from what you're seeing  now and showing later?
    3. Go "Eyes-Free" - let Kenyan Kids On Safari film you watching the lion.

But how do you get to know local people growing up with lions in their backyard?

       4. Share your backyard experiences with those of the Kenyan Kids.

Have fun getting to know the real kids of the African wildlife frontier who are learning to be the future leaders protecting the wildlife for you to see on a safari. With the help of the Kenyan professional KKOS photographer Stephen Kibuna they are  interviewing safari tourists on film and helping you add the BIG FOUR to your safari experience. Who knows? You might be featured on their website!




PUT ME IN MY PICTURE -WHAT HAPPENED ON THE GAME DRIVE


 A fantastic success!


Some of the best new ideas are just a simple twist on the old. The tourists had game drives that were even better than expected. They could focus their entire excitement on the sighting and not be separated from it by a camera, unless they just wanted the satisfaction of taking the picture themselves. AND THE TOURISTS COULD RELY ON THE KKOS PHOTO TEAM to get fantastic pictures of themselves in the picture with the wildlife they were viewing, even including the kids who were so friendly and helpful. KKOS also provided insights into growing up with wildlife, a rewarding interaction with Kenyan Kids, not a staged tourist attraction.

HOW DID IT BENEFIT THE KIDS?

They got to get up close to their wildlife and the tourists who they found to be REAL people and not just the primary economic resource of Kenya. The kids also appreciated why the tourists felt this was one of the ultimate trips of their lifetime. Imagine someone wanting to come to Kenya so strongly that they would save up for years to afford to see what the kids are surrounded by since birth. Many KKOS kids say it's the experience of a lifetime for them also. Suddenly they see in one day why their wildlife is worth conserving for Kenya and the World, and they actually FEEL it! Elephants and lions that were always such a threat to their home and cattle, are now worth a compromise to their own pastoral traditions.

Kids on safari November program participants excited as they start learning how to use snapshot telephoto cameras and camcorders. For most of the kids it's their first time to use a camera.

They enjoyed the show round and got a chance to photograph the Sarova Chef's prized organic garden. Like the tourists who tour the vegetable garden, these pastoral kids were surprised to find such a huge garden out in their bush country. 








Producing enough vegetables to supply hundreds of tourists who appreciate dining on organically grown vegetables, only found in the finest city restaurants.
