Botswana offers brilliant opportunities for wildlife photography in general, yet the Chobe River somehow manages to take it up a notch. You’re spoilt for choice around every bend: The watery landscape provides a perfect backdrop for dramatic images of hippos, fish- eagles, kingfishers and elephants by the trunk-load.
Pangolin Photo Safaris, based in Kasane, offers trips led by photographers and wildlife guides who know what they’re doing. Even beginners will walk away from a Pangolin trip with at least a few quality shots. Keen to join them? It costs US$130 (about R1 700) per person for a three-hour excursion aboard a customised boat with swivelling seats and camera supports. The rate even includes the use of a top-quality D-SLR and zoom lens – and you get to keep the SD card with your photos saved. Contact: 021 418 2312 (SA reservations); pangolinphoto.com
