Safari with Xiaomi Winners Experience the Iconic Wilderness in Masai Mara


Last month, Xiaomi Africa launched an online photography campaign to invite fans to show their
photography skills with Xiaomi phones where Winners stood to win a 3-day trip to Maasai Mara. Over
1,000 heeded the call and shared their photos under the hashtag #SafariWithXiaomi and true to its
promise, Xiaomi took the winners to the Mara along with some professional photographers.

The winners were Patrick Philemon Kulinganila (Tanzania), John Oluwamokamiyo (Nigeria), Samson
Osas (Nigeria), Victor Onokaye (Nigeria), Emmanuel Kenechukwu (Nigeria) and Yonis Mohammed
(Kenya). The professional photographers on the trip were Alamin Mutunga, Nimrod Zollo and
Kenneth Obina.

The evolution of Xiaomi phone cameras has brought great imaging very close to users, allowing them
to document moments with remarkable precision. A great example is the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G
which the photographers took to the Mara. At 200MP and 4K video capabilities, this camera signifies
a new era in mobile photography in mid-level phones, empowering users to explore photography
skills they didn’t know they had. It is also redefining the limits of what we thought can be achieved
with a smartphone camera, given that the exceptionally high resolution is supported by other
features like Pro Mode, 8MP ultrawide, 2 MP macro, preinstalled filters, and a great photo editing

This was a fun filled trip to Kenya’s Maasai Mara where the winners got to enjoy the iconic African
wilderness, abundant wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and immersive cultural experiences. We
caught up with some of the winners as well as photographers so we could get to hear their thoughts
on Xiaomi phones and their experience in the Mara.
