We are based in The Chobe all year round, which means you can operate all year round too! If you are passing through Kasane as part of an extended trip or overland adventure, we would be very happy to host you. Let us take you on one of our unforgettable, photographic safaris upon the Chobe River. We use our custom made boat which has been made photo-friendly.
What to expect on your river tour
- A minimum of three hours in duration.
- Each of our Photo Boats holds eight clients in individual photographic seats.
- Seat are equipped with a mounting for resting a DSLR camera zoom lens
- On the boat we use 150-500mm telephoto lenses.
Departure times vary depending on the time of year. This is to allow for optimum lighting conditions. The morning cruise is usually an early one – at around 6am. The afternoon safari departs at about 3pm and returns at sunset. Again, this is subject to change depending on the time of year but these can be used as a rough guideline.
We are so proud of our boats as they provide such a unique vantage point. We are able to get into the perfect position every time- without fail. The hull is very stable to provide for your optimum security. There is plenty of room for all your equipment should you be bringing your own gear. If you chose to use your own camera we will fit a base plate to the lens collar to mount it onto the seat and camera mount.
During the 3 hour cruise on the river, your photo guide will show you how the cameras work. They will also advise you on how to frame and compose the subject to capture a truly great image. We take the liberty of setting the cameras up each day for you, to suit the conditions. The fact that the Chobe is such a game rich environment and, in no time, you will be taking some images that truly do your safari in Chobe justice.
