Botswana's Okavango Photo Safari

Join award winning photographer Daniel Dugmore and a private group of photographers in the jewel of the Kalahari. This photo safari focuses on Africa's most prized wildlife destination - The Okavango Delta. Botswana is home to the largest inland delta in world, supporting some of the most extraordinary concentrations of wildlife on the planet.

 

35% of Botswana has been set aside as Wildlife Management Areas. This provides photographers with a truly wild safari experience and a promise of real adventure.  The Okavango supports some of the largest populations of wildlife, including; Elephants, Lions, Leopards and Wild Dogs. 

 

We’ll explore deep in the Okavango and the diverse landscape that surrounds it. We'll focus on areas known for predator and prey interaction and big numbers of Elephants. 

Seasoned wildlife photographers and budding amateurs alike are welcome on this extraordinary wildlife photography workshop. Every afternoon we run optional workshops on photographic techniques and post-processing while reviewing and discussing our images. Our exercises encourage you to approach your images with insight and focus.
