Hi I’m Natasha

A freelance photographer and digital content creator based in Kenya. I have lived and travelled in East Africa since 2014. In my free time I love to explore the far flung, remote corners of Eastern and southern Africa identifying the best places for you to visit.     

My favourite way to travel is in our kitted out  land cruiser, giving us the freedom to explore and be close to nature. 

If you would like to join me for a hosted safari check out my latest trip below or  schedule a call for a custom made trip.

Upcoming safaris

Travel with me

If you have always wanted to go on a safari but just don’t know where to start, I have just the answer for you. Travel with me on my upcoming ‘Cultural expedition from Kenya to Ethiopia’. We will travel together in an overland truck, everything will be organised for your and I will be accompanying you on the trip to make sure everything goes to plan. The trip will run 28th January – 9th Feb and costs just $1000. Join a group of like minded individuals or schedule a call to plan a custom made safari experience.

Kenya -Ethiopia trip

Tour Highlights

Embark on a cultural expedition, unlike your average safari experience. The trip will run from January 28th – 9th Feb starting in the capital city of Kenya, Nairobi and ending in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. 

The focus of the trip are the tribes living in the Omo Valley in the south of Ethiopia.  The Omo Valley is home to eight tribal communities, living as they have for millennia.

You will be able to learn about the culture and traditions of the various tribes within both Kenya and Ethiopia as well as be able to take photos to remember the experience.  

Throughout the trip we will travel in an overland truck, this enables everyone to travel together as a group. We will sleep in tents and a chef will accompany us to cook our meals.

 If you are looking for 5 star luxury than this is not the trip for you. However, if you are looking for authentic adventure than you should sign yourself up! 

We will spend 11 days exploring both Kenya and Ethiopia and visiting some of the more off the beaten track areas of each country. 

If you wish to add a traditional safari experience on to the trip, or even some time at the beautiful coast then that is also possible.  

If you have any questions use the ‘find out more button below to either send me an email or set up a call to discuss. 

This trip is organised by Across Afrika Safari
