October 9 – October 18, 2023
Experience several of best locations in the world to photograph lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs at their den sites, elephants, buffalo, hippos, giraffes, zebras and many types of bird species.
This very exclusive safari is limited to only 10 participants in order to provide the best wildlife viewing. We’ll have one or two private vehicles, with only 4-5 participants per vehicle. We stay at one of the best concessions in Botswana, in small, luxury camps with a maximum of eight tents. This makes our tour virtually crowd free – just us and a huge variety of wildlife! We work with highly experienced drivers/guides. Our first camp lies in a private and remote area in the northern Okavango Delta. In addition to our private vehicles, we will also be in boats to photograph animals in a variety of different habitats, ranging from the clear Delta waters with reed-lined lagoons and channels to open grasslands. This trip will be the experience of a lifetime!
