7 Day Safari – Botswana, Africa with $2,000 Travel Voucher
This 7-day itinerary starts at the Chobe National Park famed for its huge elephant populations and the opportunity to photograph some of the most relaxed and varied wildlife from both land and water on our custom-built photo boats and vehicles. Included in this package is the use of a state of the art DSLR camera and telephoto lens, should you not have your own.
Your home for the first 3 nights will be at The Pangolin Chobe Hotel which sits on the hill overlooking the Chobe floodplains. Each morning and afternoon you will be taken into the National Park, which is less than a 1km away from the lodge, by one of our resident photo guides.
In the afternoons you can make use of the editing area in the upstairs lounge or just relax by the pool with a good book. After the evening game activity, we will meet for dinner and tales around the fire.
On the 4th day after the morning activity and a wholesome brunch, you will be transferred to nearby Kasane Airport for your charter flight to the Khwai Private Reserve in The Okavango Delta. There you will spend 3 nights at the Pangolin Khwai Camp.
The Khwai Private Reserve is 200,000ha in size and bordered by the Khwai River to the South. Khwai has a reputation as one of the best areas in the Delta ecosystem for wildlife photography in the region. The reserve has excellent populations of the big cats (especially Lion, Leopard and Cheetah) and also several packs of Wild Dog. Being a private reserve, we cannot only off-road at important sightings but spend as much time as we need at each one.
During your time at the reserve, there will also be an opportunity to spend a morning or afternoon gliding through the Delta in a traditional dugout canoe called a Mokoro (seasonal). This gives you a unique vantage point as your poler pushes you past herds of plains game as they graze next to the rivers and channels.
On the final day, you will head to the airstrip to fly to Maun which has excellent daily connections throughout the region. You could head across the South African border to Madikwe or even further south to Cape Town for a beach and Bush combination and home of our sister company Cape Town Photo Tours.
