Service Description

Since the first time I went to Botswana, I fell in love with the country. The people there are remarkable, the hospitality is next level, and, of course, the wildlife is unparalleled. That’s why I am so excited about this trip and this itinerary. In a nutshell, we’ll see a bunch of Botswana and experience it in an immersive way. If you’ve ever traveled with me before, you know that I am a big fan of really leaning into a location by learning about its culture, learning some of its language, and making lifelong friends with our fellow travelers and the people who help us experience locations in such a remarkable way. Nice, memorable photos and photo subjects are a given on my excursions, but when you travel with me, I think you’ll agree that you will come home with so much more. Highlights of this trip include: - Elephants and hippos as you photograph them from mere feet away in a gimbal-equipped boat that’s made specially for photography; - Photograph wildlife from safari vehicles that get you close to a variety of species; - The Chobe River and Chobe National Park - the most biologically diverse region of Botswana; - Incredible bird diversity; - Abundant plains game species like impala, cape buffalo, and scores of other species; - This trip is scheduled for a biologically active time of the year; - We’ll be in locations that are uncrowded and still wild; - You’ll be with a small group of like-minded folks; - You’ll receive photo instructions that will make you a better photographer; - You’ll have a lot of fun.
