Photographic Safaris in The African Wild

The best place for a photographic safari is Botswana. Wildlife in Botswana is thriving and the country is quickly becoming known for being one of the foremost photographic destinations in the world. While a simple snapshot from an iPhone on one of our game drives can produce stunning results, we carefully craft and cater Photographic Safaris for both amateur and professional photographers looking for the perfect shot.

Specialized Game vehicles are used on our photographic safaris, and expert guides work tirelessly to ensure that photographers are able to capture unforgettable shots. However, a true photographer often needs to capture birdlife on the water or get close on the ground, and that is where our specialized mokoro and walking tours for photographers come in handy.

If you’re keen on taking some incredible photographs of the African Wild, let us know you’re interested. We’ll then work with you to put together the ultimate photographic safari that includes specialized lodges in areas best fitting the game you most want to shoot. We then take care of everything, and all you need to worry about it getting yourself and your camera equipment to the airport.

Where and when to travel

Our favorite photographic destination is Botswana. It checks all the boxes. Incredible wildlife selection and a great variety of landscapes to choose from, from desert through to delta. Botswana also offers the most comprehensive and professional suite of safari operations that ensure that photographers are given the opportunity to take the best pictures possible.

The best time of the year depends on whether you’re more interested in landscape or wildlife, or a mixture of the two. Low season runs from December to March. It’s greener and ther landscape is at its most beautiful. However, owing to dense foliage, it can be more difficult to spot and capture animals. However, many professional photographers prefer this time of the year as it affords them the chance to take the occasional majestic shot of wildlife in a rich environment.

Mid-season runs from April through to July. This is a great time as there is water in the Delta.

High season runs from August to October. It’s much drier which makes it easier to spot. Wildlife. However, the tradeoff is that the landscape is surprisingly dry and detracts from the overall feel of the wildlife image.

Ultimately it’s your call.
