Our Chobe photographic safaris are conducted inside the Chobe National Park and on the Chobe River. The Chobe River forms the northern border of the park. The park is in the northern part of Botswana and is well known for its natural abundance of wildlife. The Chobe River Drive is a spectacular route. What makes this river drive unique is the combination of mammals, birds, and reptiles that can be seen. The riverine forest is the ideal nesting ground for some of the larger raptors in Botswana. There is also a 4 x 4 track road along most of the river.
Chobe park is perfect for both amateur and professional photographers. The variety of subjects and landscapes are phenomenal.
Chobe park offers river views and floodplains. The mopane and teak forests are home to browsers and rare species. The elevated viewpoints provide spectacular sunset views over the floodplains. It is not uncommon to see some of the largest elephant herds in the world.
You can select a range of photographic safaris packages. There are schedule departures with other travellers as well as private safaris. You can select a day experience or a multi-day experience.
