Botswana Photo Safaris

Botswana's Highlights - Photo Safari Northbound

Enjoy Botswana’s fascinating wildlife in the country’s most beautiful national parks, game reserves and concession areas. Our destinations in this safari are: Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve, Khwai / Mababe Concession Areas, Centeral Chobe / Savuti and Chobe Riverfront.

This mobile tented safari is full catered (breakfast / lunch / dinner). Our guests sleep in comfortable walk-in Meru tents with own bathroom facility.
This 10 day / 9 nights photo safari goes northbound, it starts in Maun and ends in Kasane.

On our Wild Focus Photo Safaris the group size is smaller compred to our classic safaris. We travel with 4 – 6 people in a vehicle. That ensures that everyone has a window seat and enough room for the camera equipment.

One special highlight of this safari is the included scenic flight. Being
airborne over the Okavango Delta gives you the ultimate scenic flight
experience. Flying 500 feet above the waters of the Okavango gives you a great
view of the largest inland delta in the world. Also, this scenic flight offers
excellent photographic opportunity. The abundance of wildlife in the flood
plains is a keen photographer’s dream.
