We’ve partnered with arguably the very best mobile safari operator in Botswana to create a true photographic adventure that offers a wonderful close to nature wilderness experience.

Apart form a tailor-made Botswana photography safari, taking you to the most amazing locations and wildlife sightings, Professional and passionate Photographer Michael Snedic will be there throughout the safari to make sure you achieve the best possible images from your safari.

We will seek out elephants, lions, endangered African wild dogs, hippos, giraffes, cheetahs, leopards to name a few. In the Chobe region we photograph from the comfort of boats on ay one and game vehicles throughout. When we move into the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Okavango Delta it’s 4x4 game drives, a walking safari and mokoro.

We’re not providing the most luxurious tents dripping in fancy furnishings. Our ethos is all about the safari experience and guiding. You can expect an exclusive mobile camp and team providing personal service, lovely food and all the creature comforts you need for a great time!

There’s something simplistic about spending time in our own private and small, low impact camp in the heart of Botswana’s wilderness. We photograph wilderness and wildlife at sunrise, day time, sunset and night time. Each evening we will fall asleep to the sound of grunting hippo, roaring lions and under a canopy of stars, but inside your wonderful canvas tent - home for the duration. Our private guide is passionate, knowledgeable and we have him all to ourselves for the entire trip!

We are not bound by the constraints of an organised lodge safari - so there’s greater flexibility in lingering longer at sightings we want to photograph.

Accommodation is in canvas tents with ample standing room, camp beds and mattresses, bed side tables and gauze windows. To the rear of each tent is an open ensuite bathroom with chemical toilet, bucket shower and hot water.

A camp fire area and dining tent are set up for our social area.

We are fortunate to have access to such amazing, photogenic places and we should be using those gifts to help us sell travel, support local communities, and protect the wild spaces and the wondrous inhabitants that mean so much to all of us.

Our team is committed to continuously pushing the envelope, listening to your feedback and responding to your needs.

We hope you will join us on this journey.

August 6 to 11

August 6 - 7
Photographic safari activities include game drives, walking safaris, night drives and mokoro excursions. We spend our time between the dry-land habitats of the leadwood and camel-thorn woodlands and savannahs and the riverside and marshy back-waters of the Khwai. Expect to see excellent elephant numbers, lion, leopard, buffalo, red lechwe, wildebeest, giraffe, kudu, sable, roan and impala. If we're lucky we may see wild dog and cheetah. Leopard are very elusive. This is a mecca for birding, particularly Bat-Hawks, Cuckoo Hawk, Eagles galore and waterbirds.
August 8 - 11
Today we pack up and game drive to Moremi along the Manuchira Channel. We will weave from the riverside and floodplains into mopane veld and woodlands so it's a truly beautiful scenic day. We pass Dombo Hippo Pools and stop to photograph hippo. Onwards to camp photographing whenever we wish to stop! Moremi Game Reserve
August 9 - 10
Photographic safari in Moremi. Habitats here range from wide-open floodplains, marshes, lagoons, papyrus fringed channels, vast reed-beds of Miscanthus and Phragmites, woodland and savannah. As a result of the extremely variable habitat the diversity of both wildlife and birdlife is excellent.
August 11
Following breakfast and early morning game drive, you'll be transferred to Maun where arrangements end.
