Chobe Delta Dream Photo Safari 2022

Package price:

from US$7000 pps

We’ve designed this exclusive Chobe Delta Dream Photo Safari to take you on an incredible sojourn through Botswana’s beautiful landscape as well as a water based adventure on the region’s thriving river habitat. One of Africa’s best kept secrets is that its photographic potential exists both on land and water.

The intimate group size of only 7 guests allows for flexibility and better group dynamics.

Itinerary

8 nights 6 - 14 May 2022

This exclusive photo safari begins at a lodge on the banks of the Chobe River in Kasane. Then the next 3 days will be spent on the houseboat – exclusively booked for the group.

Photographing on the water allows for a dust free environment, and provides an eye-level perspective for capturing wildlife and bird behaviour in a way that can’t be achieved on land. Large numbers of mammals and birds abound this area with a stunning backdrop of the river creating clean, uncluttered backgrounds for the images you’ll take to last a life time.

 

A charter flight takes you down to the Delta Camp for the next stage of your dream safari.

Participate in land based game drives – this specially equipped 4×4 reserved for your group guarantee each photographer access to both sides allowing for freedom of movement and plenty of room for your gear.

There will be photo hosts available on each game drive providing professional guidance with everything from suggestions on composition, camera settings to capture the best images and tips for anticipating African wildlife behaviour.

At the Delta Camp there are cameras and lenses to use and memory cards are supplied free of charge too. Your photo host is on hand during game drives to assist you with your photography and also with afternoon image review sessions in the editing tent (own laptops required).  The editing tent is a great place for group post-production sessions and to store and recharge camera gear.

Night Drives  – Being on a private concession affords the flexibility  to off-road at special sightings as well as conduct night drives. Being exclusive meal times are totally flexible to suit the days activities.  When conditions are right with the lunar cycle and climatic conditions at their optimum guides head out and do star photography at night.

4 nights of adventure at this exclusive camp with walk-in Meru style tents, proper comfortable beds, clothes storage, a good electricity supply as well as an en-suite bucket shower with a flushing toilet. !

On the final morning of your safari you will board a charter flight to Maun.  Everyone then will go their own separate ways with memories to last a life time and images to reflect back on for years.

Continue onward with your own arrangements.
