YOUR SAFARI INCLUDES:

  • 6 nights Okavango Delta: Khwai River Region & Moremi Game reserve
  • 3 nights Chobe National Park: Savute

Click on the highlighted names for detailed information about each location.

To capture award-winning images we know it's important you have the time and space to completely focus on your photography. With years of experience running photo safaris we've got all the big and small details covered. First, we make sure you get the maximum time in the field possible and you're in the right place to capture beautiful images. Then we take care of everything else. All you have to do is turn up with your cameras and be ready to shoot.

  • Fly-in-fly-out transfers: Your safari will begin with a light-aircraft flight from Maun or Kasane to our first photo safari camp. At the end of your safari you will fly from the last photo safari camp to the nearest international airport and continue your onward journey. Click here to view a map of Botswana 
  • Mobile camp: A mobile tented safari allows us to relocate from one exclusive wilderness site to another. Based on our local knowledge we hand pick locations that produce phenomenal wildlife action year after year, then we set our base camp so that you are in the heart of the action. We move location so that you are exposed to a variety of habitat, each one with its own unique photographic opportunities. click here to read more about mobile safaris
  • Accommodation: During a mobile tented photo safari, you will be hosted in comfortable en-suited tents. Each tent comes complete with comfortable beds, a wash stand, night light, linen and en-suite facilities. Our safari service team are always available with hot water for your shower, an extra blanket if needed and a complete laundry service.
  • Food and beverages: All meals are freshly prepared by our skilled chef. Water, soft drinks and local wine, beer and spirits are included. If you have specialised dietary requirements, catering to your needs will not be a problem.
  • Safari vehicles: You will travel in comfortable, spacious, open-style safari vehicles. There is plenty of room for you to move around and have your photographic equipment close at hand. There is a maximum of three photographers per vehicle.
  • Equipment: We provide large, good quality beanbags for use throughout the safari and there are tripods available so you may only have to bring your tri-pod head. There is a lot of information to cover when it comes to equipment so you will receive an in-depth information document that covers everything from clothing essentials to camera equipment as soon as you confirm your reservation. 

PRE AND POST SAFARI ARRANGEMENTS:

For many Africa is along way from home but once you are here the rest of Africa is relatively close at hand. This is the perfect opportunity to explore Botswana further or beyond to neighbouring countries. We can arrange an extension to your photographic safari to regions such as The Kalahari, Victoria Falls, Namibia or even Cape Town in South Africa. If this is an option you would like to know more about then please advise us when discussing your photographic safari. We can offer some great suggestions and make all the necessary arrangements. Click here to view information about other destinations in Botswana.
