Freeman Safaris

Maximum Game Viewing

All our vehicles are designed to give you the maximum game viewing experience with as much comfort as is possible in the rough terrain of the Kenyan bush! Our Land Rovers have the go-anywhere capability with the power to get through where others fail. Having the right vehicle enables us to get into the right position for that very important shot.

The vehicles have been modified with a totally open roof with padded roll cage bars. There are plenty of pockets and space for your equipment .The side have been modified with a rail provided with a Manfrotto head to enable large lenses to be safely mounted.This give total flexibility for either high or low shots.

On each safari there is a maximum of four clients per Land Rover. However, an increasing number of clients, including photographers equipped with top-of-the-range professional cameras and large telephoto lenses have asked to have either a row of seats to themselves or an exclusive vehicle.

This can be requested through the booking process.

For the serious Photographer

Freeman Safaris have recently introduced an exciting new additional vehicle to the fleet which has been specifically adapted for photographer’s needs. It is based on the Land Rover Discovery and is a no-compromise vehicle allowing the photographer an unprecedented range of viewing options. I think I can truly say that there has never been a vehicle that answers so many of the problems that photographers encounter when trying to get the ultimate shot on safari. Ideally suited to the professional or serious amateur photographer.
This can be requested through the booking process.

“I was very fortunate to be provided with a specially converted Landrover Discovery (Disco) to evaluate for the duration of my stay on the Mara. It is very well thought-out and must represent just about the ultimate wildlife photography vehicle for the purposes of safari photography. The Disco has been strengthened, its doors removed and replaced with a horizontal shelf allowing you to shoot anywhere along the side of the vehicle at eye level to your subject. As there is only the driver’s seat plus two passenger seats (which swivel) there is a great deal of space inside. The Disco also has two closable roof cut-outs so you can still shoot in any direction unhindered when standing up. I will never forget the sight of photographing two exquisite cheetahs walking straight towards me to within a couple of metres while I laid on the floor at slightly below their eye level – now that was a wildlife experience! I wouldn’t be that brave with a leopard though.
