VICTORIA FALLS, CHOBE, OKAVANGO DELTA
When it comes to a true African safari experience, this exclusive photography workshop is the perfect trip for both amateur and professional wildlife photographers. This magnificent photo safari starts in the heart of Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls. These first two days will be spent photographing the wanders of the falls and giving you the time to explore and photograph the wildlife.
From the glamorous hotel located at Victoria Falls, you will be picked up and taken into Botswana by car crossing a safe border to get to the location of Chobe where you will be escorted to the exclusive Chobe Photo Safari Hotel. Here you will spend three nights to photograph the wildlife such as Elephant, Hippo and Lion to name a few and gain memorable images of a life time.
In Chobe each full day, you will have two game outings each day. Depending on activity and the best wildlife photographic opportunities, you will either be taken on the on-land game drive or the on river photo boat. These modes of transport will increase your photographic opportunities to capture your showcase of breath-taking images of wild Africa.
Our safari boat rides consist of eight seats that rotate a full 360-degrees giving you an exceptional manoeuvrability with your lens. The mounting of our tripods are based on a lightweight machine gun mounting used by the South African army. The design is so simple and effective that you will master the tripod in no time.
After each drive, you will have the luxury of the Chobe Photo Safari Hotel to relax and enjoy the breath-taking images that decor the hotels interior. There will be an exquisite three course meal of breakfast, lunch and dinner and a grand selection of beverages that will be available at your leisure.
From your Photo Safari in Chobe, you will then get on your private charted air-plane and fly West to the most fascinating location on the planet: The Okavango Delta. Here you will spend the last four days at our exclusive bushman camp. With your freshly served three course meals and a grand range of beverages, you will be taken out twice a day on our photographic safari game drives in search of the active wildlife that thrives the delta.
On the last day you will be taken to the air strip and we will take the private charted plane to Maun where we will say our goodbyes where a small international airport awaits.
