A pioneering partnership for photographic tourism


In a pioneering move that underscores the evolving landscape of the tourism and hospitality industry, Canon and JW Marriott Masai Mara Lodge are partnering to enhance and transform the guest experience through the art of photography.

This collaboration marks a significant milestone in offering immersive, photography-centered travel experiences, setting a new benchmark for luxury safaris.

At the heart of this partnership are the Lodge’s two resident photographers, Kennedy Amungo and Moses Letura. With their expertise, guests are not just equipped with high-end Canon photography gear but are also guided on how to harness these tools effectively converting amateurs to enthusiastic photographers.

Canon has committed to providing guests with an array of top-tier camera equipment, including the acclaimed Mirrorless EOS RS 6 Mark II and a selection of lenses such as the RF 100 – 500mm and RF 24 – 70mm. This assortment ensures that guests, irrespective of their photography skill level, can document their safari adventures with unparalleled clarity and detail.

Moreover, Canon’s integration of cutting – edge technology into the JW Marriott Masai Mara Lodge experience allows guests to not only capture but also save their memories on-site, offering a seamless transition from a moment captured to a memory preserved.

Understanding the pivotal role of accessibility, the Lodge has ensured that Canon’s premium photography equipment is easily accessible to guests, making it an integral part of the safari experience. The Lodge has curated a series of photography – centric activities, including guided game drives led by our resident photographers, aimed at maximizing the use of the provided equipment.

This partnership goes beyond enhancing the guest experience; it redefines it. By equipping guests with photography gears, JW Marriott Masai Mara Lodge not only allows them to capture the awe-inspiring landscapes and wildlife of the Mara but also to take home personalised, lifetime memories of their safari adventures.

Furthermore, by attracting photography enthusiasts, this initiative adds a unique dimension to the Lodge’s offerings, catering to the growing interest in photography as an integral part of the travel experience.

This forward – thinking collaboration between Canon and JW Marriott Masai Mara Lodge not only aligns with the interests of modern travelers but also highlights the potential of photography in promoting wildlife and nature conservation.
