  • Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

    Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

    The Kgalagadi Photo Safari takes you into the heart of the southern Kalahari Desert, offering you a chance to view the abundance of mammals and birds that have adapted to living in the harsh conditions of this dry and arid region. The vast open spaces make game viewing particularly easy, and you will be sure to spot unusual game such as the Gemsbuck and black-maned lion. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a large wildlife reserve and conservation area in Southern Africa that straddles the borders between South Africa and Botswana, including two adjoining national parks: The Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa and the Gemsbok National Park in Botswana. Kgalagadi means place of thirst in the Shekgalagadi language of the Tswana people of Botswana, and is located largely within the Southern Kalahari Desert. The terrain consists of red sand dunes, sparse vegetation, occasional trees, and the dry riverbeds of the Nossob and Auob rivers. These rivers are said to flow once every 100 years, however, water flows underground and provides life for grass and camel thorn trees growing in the riverbeds. After large thunderstorms, the rivers flow briefly for a day or two, a cause for celebration among the wildlife, who will flock to the riverbeds and quench their eternal thirst. The abundance of wildlife in the Kgalagadi is never-ending, and although it is home to only two of the Big 5, it is famous for its large mammalian predators such as black-maned Kalahari lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas. Migratory herds of large herbivores such as Blue Wildebeest, Springbuck, Eland, and Red Hartebeest also live and move seasonally within the park, providing sustenance for predators. More than 200 bird species can be found in the park, including vultures and raptors such as eagles, buzzards, and secretary birds. The weather in the Kalahari can reach extremes. January is midsummer in Southern Africa and the daytime temperatures are often in excess of 40 °C (104 °F). Winter nights can be quite cold with temperatures below freezing. Extreme temperatures of –11 °C and up to 45 °C have been recorded. Precipitation is sparse in this desert area.
  • Botswana

    Botswana

    Botswana is a South-central African country, landlocked by Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. This beautiful country is home to the great Okavango Delta and the Kalahari Desert, as well as some of the most exclusive wildlife encounters, which we have the opportunity to experience on our photo safaris to Botswana. Botswana’s Mokoro trips (a “Mokoro” is a dug-out canoe) are one of the many exciting activities which the Okavango Delta has to offer, taking in the scenery while you relax on the waters, photographing the land mammals coming to the water’s edge to quench their thirst and cool themselves from the African heat. This safari package explores the amazing Moremi Game Reserve, which is located on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. Both have a plethora of fauna and flora and some of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. This photographic safari to Botswana has been carefully selected for you to capture those once in a lifetime images, as you take the soul of Africa home with you in your photographs. Botswana remains one of the wealthiest and most stable countries on the continent. English is the official language, but Tswana is the most widely-spoken language, and is considered the national language.
  • Chobe National Park

    Chobe National Park

    The Chobe National Park, Botswana’s first National Park, is situated in the Northern part of the country and has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. It is the third largest park of the country and is best known for its spectacular elephant population, consisting of approximately 50 000 elephants, making this the highest continuous surviving elephant concentration in Africa. Chobe is divided into four main regions which consist of: The Chobe riverfront which maintains the largest concentration of wildlife and incredible birding, the Savuti Marsh which offers prime habitat, the Linyati Swamps and the dry savannah between them. The Chobe River area is home to an interesting variety of habitats and is rife with plant life including Mopane woodland, mixed Combretum, sandveld, floodplain, grasslands and riverine woodland. It is here that you can experience a safari of a different kind – on a houseboat. Houseboats offer a unique experience compared to your everyday safari as you are constantly in contact with the wildlife that drink on the shores or the pods of lazy hippo that wallow in the waters of the Chobe River. The sounds of the wild will astound you as you drift silently along, immersed in the heart of the African bush. From this advantage point, the river will give you a different perspective on wildlife photography, allowing closer proximity to creatures that you don’t usually see on land-bound safari. The game viewing is incredible and you are sure to see large herds of buffalo, zebra, lechwe, bushbuck and many other antelope. Four of the Big 5 are ever present – elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo – but rhino is very rare.
  • Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

    Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

    Victoria Falls is also known as “Mosioa-Tunya” (“the smoke that thunders”). It is positioned between Zambia and Zimbabwe, halfway along the Zambezi River’s 2700 km journey from its source to the sea. It is here that the river plunges into a 100m vertical chasm, spanning the full width of the river, creating the biggest curtain of falling water in the world and also one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Upon stumbling onto the falls in his quest, Dr David Livingstone remarked that “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.” He then named the falls after the British Queen at the time, Victoria. Due to the constant spray of the falls, the rain forest at Victoria Falls is the only place on earth where it rains 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The spray also contributes to the spectacular rainbows seen during the day and the “moonbows” seen at night during a full moon. Among many other activities on offer at Victoria Falls, “walking with the lions” and “elephant back rides” are by far the most unusual and exciting. You can walk alongside lions as they walk freely through the African bush, supervised by a qualified team who has been working with the lions for many years. The photographic opportunities are incredible as you interact with and learn about these majestic animals. You can also choose to see the world from a different angle as you hop onto the back of an elephant with a specialized guide to capture the African bush through the eyes of these soulful creatures. No game drive in a safari vehicle will ever come close to the feeling of serenity and “at one with nature” that an elephant back safari offers.
