Photography Safaris

Our camps are perfect for any level of photographer, from professional to committed hobbyist to the novice. Our safari camps are a photographer’s dream, including sunrises over the Zambezi River at Tembo Plains and ol Donyo’s Lodge, two photographic hides, each perfectly placed in front of a water hole that draws some of the region’s last “big tusker” elephants!


Our vehicles are open 4x4s with a maximum of 6 guests (private vehicles available), many of which come with stabilizing bean bags and camera mounts. At Duba Plains, Selinda Camp, Zarafa Camp, Mara Plains and ol Donyo Lodge, each tent has a professional camera and lenses for guests to use with their images downloaded on departure. Duba Plains is home to a specialist photographic boat perfect for exploring the Okavango Delta.


Guests can book a scenic helicopter flight at our camps in Botswana to capture stunning aerial shots. For those looking to improve their photography skills at any level, we can arrange private photographic tuition for all abilities taught by a professional photographic guide.


“Because of our careers in photography, many guests and travellers to our camps expect something photographic, a cut above others. Often, very keen photographers want to learn more or improve upon this fantastic craft. With this in mind, we can enhance your safari with the photographic tuition and services of some of Africa’s best known private photographic guides.”


There are opportunities for guests of all levels of photographic abilities to refine their skills on their photographic safari. Even if you don’t consider yourself a ‘photographer’, our guides are trained to assist you in capturing your iconic safari moments.


We can arrange for guests who want to refine their photographic skills further by organising a professional photographer to accompany you whilst on your photographic safari. These professional photographic guides live in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Kenya. They are well suited to guide you through the technical aspects of photography whilst assisting in developing more meaningful and richer wildlife photographic portfolios.


Choosing the right equipment and knowing what to bring is very important. We can work with you and/or your travel agent with all the right advice. We can also provide you with some hints and tips to get you started.
