Botswana & Zimbabwe

Location: Botswana and Zimbabwe

Dates: November 11-22, 2022 WAITLIST

Cost: $11,550 double occupancy, $850 single supplement 

Description: This safari has been custom designed for our group of 12.

We start in Hwange National Park, the most prolific wildlife viewing area in Zimbabwe.  This is a very dry park making for exceptional photographic opportunities as wildlife congregates at waterholes.  This creates a  unique opportunity to photograph from a ‘Look Up’ hide which is a container sunk next to a very productive waterhole allowing for true ground level photography.  As we transition from Hwange to Botswana we have the chance to visit one of Africa’s scenic icons – Victoria Falls.  At this time of year the water over the Falls is at a low volume which allows great views of the stunning gorge that has been carved by the mighty Zambezi River.

Next we move on to Botswana’s famed Chobe National Park riverfront.  The big draw here is incredible boat trips on the Chobe River with its famed concentrations of elephant, hippo and a variety of other animals.  Our boat is specially designed for photographers with swivel chairs allowing us to achieve the highest quality river based photography.

Our last destination is the legendary Okavango Delta, widely considered Africa’s best wilderness safari experience.  Here we have a safari camp that is ideally located in an area that provides dry land for top notch game drives but also has sufficient channels to explore the Okavango by boat.  Use of a team of guides and trackers maximizes opportunities to locate and follow predators, including rarer species like lion, cheetah and African wild dogs.
