7-Day Chobe National Park Luxury Photo Safari

We firmly believe that Chobe National Park is one of the best wildlife photography destinations in southern Africa. This tour takes you to the very heart of Chobe and is conducted by award winning photographic hosts. You will be provided with professional grade cameras and telephoto lenses and will be given all your images on a memory stick after the tour.



Day 1-4

Mobile Camping

The mobile camp is hosted by one of our Pangolin Photo Hosts who will supply you with a camera and telephoto lens and show you how to make the most of every photo opportunity on the morning and afternoon game drives. This safari starts with a game drive through the national park in our custom 8 seater landcruiser where everyone has a window seat, to the mobile camp which is based in the North Westerly sector of the park. There are five large walk in tents sleeping a maximum of eight guests with a dining tent that doubles as an editing area. Our chefs are masters at producing delicious meals from the nearby bush kitchen and the support vehicle has enough cold storage to make sure the drinks are always chilled. After dinner, there is time to sit around the campfire and enjoy this true wilderness experience. On the fourth day, we will pack up the vehicles and head East towards the Pangolin Chobe Hotel.


Day 5-6

River Safaris

By this time you will have improved your photography and will be feeling confident shooting on the manual camera settings. This will allow you more creative control over your images and we spend more time on the boats perfecting various techniques. The boats seat 8 people all in a row down the middle with room for everyone to rotate 360 degrees. Each seat is has a custom camera gimbal on which we mount your camera and lens. We tend to use bigger telephoto lenses (150-600mm) on the river than on the game drives (100-400mm) as you don’t need to hand hold the cameras on the boat. We do twice daily game activities on the river and also one or two game drives on a very productive part of the Chobe that we could not get to from the mobile camp.


Day 7


On the final day, we will transfer you to the airport if you are heading home.
