Chobe National Park Photographic Safari
Explore the wilderness of the Chobe National Park on a 3-day photographic safari. With a photo-friendly Unimog photographic vehicle and a custom-built photo boat, capture Africa’s untamed beauty at its best.
A South Africa 365 representative will meet you at Kasane Airport and transfer you the short distance to the Mowana Lodge, your base for the duration of your Chobe photographic safari.
After check in, you will embark on your first photo safari and a sunset cruise along the Chobe River, on the custom-built 9m aluminium photo boat. Seating eight guests, this wide-bottomed boat offers fully rotational camera seats and fully adjustable camera mountings to allow you the most flexibility in getting that all-important shot.
On board, you will be shown how the Nikon D7000 camera which is fitted with a 150-500mm Sigma zoom lens functions (complimentary use for the duration of the safari). As you become more comfortable with the camera, you will receive expert tips - ensuring you capture the ultimate wildlife shots. The boat trip lasts for approximately 3 hours and refreshments will be served along the way. You return to Mowana just in time for a sumptuous dinner.
You will leave early in the morning on a 3-hour game drive in the custom-built Unimog. Comfortably seating eight guests, this medium truck has a high ground clearance, flexible frame, and is equipped with Nikon D7000 cameras with 120-400mm Sigma lenses and padded photo mounts – providing a great platform for getting that perfect photo angle. On board you will receive help with the cameras and advice on picture composition. Refreshments will be served during the course of the drive, and all images captured will be transferred to a personalized DVD.
You return to Mowana in time for a delicious breakfast and the middle of the day is spent at leisure.
Your afternoon game drive departs at 3pm in the photo friendly Unimog. Track predators as they get ready for their night hunting and capture once-in-a-lifetime shots of lions, leopards, hyenas and other predators in the Chobe National Park. Soft drinks, local beers and wines will be served, before returning to the lodge at sunset.
Your final 3-hour photo safari departs at 6am. Cruise along the banks of the Chobe River in the photo boat and capture elephants, buffalo, zebra and giraffe coming out of the bush for their morning drink. This spectacular time of the day offers magnificent photo opportunities of crocodiles, hippos and an abundance of fish eagle that hunt along the river.
You return to Mowana in time for breakfast, and after a relaxing lunch you will be transferred to Kasane Airport, for the end of your Chobe photographic safari.
