Botswana remains one of the greatest countries on the continent of Africa for wildlife photography. It’s remote, seemingly limitless wilderness is vast and untrammeled by the hand of man. Lions, leopards, Zebras, Giraffe and vast herds of African Elephants roam the expansive plains of this land-locked country situated between South Africa, Zimbabwe and Namibia. Explore the wilds of an Africa that seems stuck in a time forgotten.
Our Botswana Wildlife Safari is a photographic journey like no other with design and dedication to capturing the wildlife of Africa while traveling in a unique and authentic local style. We travel by plane, custom safari boat and open vehicles to show you the incredible variety of wildlife that Botswana has to offer.
This trip takes us deep inside Chobe National Park where the highlights will be river cruises along the Chobe River as well as the Okavango Delta & Mashatu. We’ll explore the wildlife rich banks of the Chobe River by custom-built safari boats – allowing us to get amazingly close to large herds of elephants, impalas, buffalo and other wildlife as they appear on the banks. Incredible, full-frame eye-level shots of swimming hippos and hunting lions are possible as we cruise down river each day.
Aside from our river excursions there will also be plenty of time in open safari vehicles to capture the action. The biodiversity of wildlife here is incredible with over 50 species of mammal and 350 species of birds – so the action is literally non-stop!
Return each night to a luxurious safari-style “camp” which feature luxurious amenities, incredible food and camaraderie with your fellow photographers under the starry African skies.
If wildlife photography is your passion then a trip to Botswana with Backcountry Journeys needs to be on your list. Our meticulous scouting, camp selection and world-class logistics leave no stone unturned in creating the most memorable travel experience to the African continent.
