Looks like an airfield or train station in Nairobi? The sign obscured by the people in the photo looks like it says NAIROBI and a quick search of The Services Co Ltd PO Box 460 (written on the building) pulls up the Kenya Gazette.

Train station in Nairobi then. Martin and Osa Johnson are in the picture, and Im trying to put names with some of the others. Any famous hunters in the picture?

Some wild guesses:

second from left (partly obscured) - Bror Blixen?

to the left of Osa (to the right from her perspective) - Phil Percival?

unresearched .....

Next tricky hint. Click on the menu item for Expedition 1924, there is a description, of the Lake Paradise Expedition.

http://safarimuseum.com/gallery/#/EXPEDITION%20Africa%201924/

The Lake Paradise Expedition of the Johnson's is well written about. Probably movie footage as well. Should be lots of information recorded.

Yeah I went through a lot of the pictures and knew that the Johnsons eventually went there. I've identified several of the characters standing on the left side of the picture and hope to find a picture of two of one in particular holding a certain H&H takedown rifle. I don't think this was all one safari group.

Looks like a farewell party photo on the start of the expedition from Nairobi to me.
