Okavango Delta Photo Safari: Under Canvas & Lodge

From: £Contact us

Photograph Botswana's best-loved wildlife including lion, elephant, buffalo and wild dog and their rarer, nocturnal residents such as honey badger and African civet on this dedicated 12-day photography special.

We spend six nights in luxury mobile camping tents where we enjoy day and night drives, before heading to Mma Dinare Lodge where we have the option of more drives, but also alongside mokoro boat trips and even walking safaris. This combination will provide us with a fantastic range of settings, target species and perspective to photograph. Your two photographic guides will always be on hand to provide advice and guidance on how to capture wonderful images whether you're a beginner, or more experienced photographer. 

Staying in two of the Okavango Delta's finest wildlife concessions we will be afforded with plenty of photographic and wildlife opportunities. Some of the species that we hope to see and photograph include lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant herds and wild dogs. Botswana is home to a wide variety of birds including lilac-breasted rollers, saddle-billed storks, openbills, glossy ibis, secretary birds, a variety of vultures, bateleurs, tawny and martial eagles. As you embark on night safaris some of Botswana's more elusive mammals begin to emerge including African civet, large-spotted genet, African porcupine, lesser bushbaby and perhaps African wild cat, honey badger or serval. Each of these animals will be fantastic subjects for us, as we get to grips with the intricacies of night photography.

The light at this time of year should provide us with glowing colours and the iconic sunrises and sunsets for which Africa is well known. With photography in mind, the guides are well experienced in positioning the vehicle to ensure that the light is favourable for photography. When necessary Bret and Emma will explain methods to successfully photograph in low light and even work with you to capture some images of the extraordinary African night sky.

In addition to this dedicated photo safari we also have our Okavango Delta Under Canvas & Lodge Safari which is perfect for those who would prefer less emphasis on photography.
