The Okavango Delta and surrounds offer some of the greatest wildlife photography experiences on the continent! In our opinion, there is no better way to experience this than to totally immerse yourself into “the bush” with a mobile safari experience.

The day-to-day itinerary is very flexible and dependent on the movement of animals in the area. Generally there is a morning and an afternoon game drive with time for relaxation and editing during the heat of the day.

The game viewers that we use have been specially adapted so that each of the guests has access to a padded camera mount alongside their seat. There are a maximum of 4 clients per vehicle. This means plenty of room for gear and maneuverability at sightings. Each vehicle is fitted with charging points – so that you charge camera batteries at any point on board during game drives. Along with a tea and coffee box, the vehicle carries a fridge for cold drinks.

    The camps that are set up in the various areas are beautiful and rustic with very comfortable tents. The luxury tents have proper beds, cotton sheets, duvets and towels and an en suite toilet and shower. There is a central dining area which doubles as an editing suite during the day for post production of images. Power is supplied to charge laptops and batteries by our solar system.

    Each tent has an en-suite toilet and shower accessed directly from the rear of the tent. Each tent also has its own canvas washbasin, which is filled with warm water from the campfire every morning before the first drive.

    Three meals are served each day – typically a light breakfast of toast and cereals, a lunch consisting of salads,breads, cheese and cold meats and or picnic lunch depending on the day and a three-course dinner in the evening.

    Food is wholesome and fresh, however, we center the safari around the photography and so meal times are completely flexible depending on the wildlife and sightings.

    In camp and on the car, is a tea and coffee service available at all times during the safari.

    The huge advantage of a mobile camp is being right in the middle of all the action. Even in camp it’s not unusual to be visited by some large mammals like elephants for more photo opportunities during the day.

    The day-to-day itinerary is very flexible and dependent on the movement of animals in the area. Generally there is a morning and an afternoon game drive with time for relaxation and editing during the heat of the day.

    The most popular route that we offer is a 10-day from The Chobe national Park to Maun through the Savute, Khwai River (night drives available) and Moremi reserves. We spend three nights in each area to make the most of each of the differing ecosystems and its wildlife. This itinerary can also been run from Maun to Chobe instead.

    Other destinations available as add ons to the above destinations are Nxai Pan National Park, Makgadigadi National Park (including the pans and Boteti River) and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve including Deception and Passarge Valleys.

    Savute – Chobe National Park:

    The meandering Savute channel feeding off the Linyanti/ Chobe river system and finds it’s way between the small hills (or koppies) that make this part of the park unique. The channel eventually floods into a marsh area, which attracts large numbers of mammals and birds. In 2013, the documentary – Giant killers – was released about the Lions who hunt Elephant in the region. Also notable is the density of Leopards, African Wild Dogs, big herds of Buffalo as well as a Zebra migration that passes through there in May. Khwai River:

    This eastern most extremity of the Okavango Delta’s wetland system attracts large numbers of game including congregations of elephants as well as lion, leopard, African wild dog and hyena alongside spectacular plains game including zebra, wildebeest, tsessebe and giraffe. It is also well known as good destination to photograph all kinds of birds and has high densities of raptors.

    In June, July, August and September, it is one of the best places to photograph African Wild Dogs denning.

    Moremi Game Reserve:

    This is the protected part of the Okavango Delta and here we explore the floods around the Xakanaxa region and the seasonal flood plains in the south of the park. It is good for landscape photography as well as plains game and the large predators.

    Nxai Pan, Makgadikgadi and Central Kalahari

    We offer alternative expeditions to explore and discover the semi arid zones of the Kalahari in search of desert species such as Oryx, Springbok and Ostrich. These destinations are also well known for the famous Black maned Kalahari Lions and Cheetah.
