The low-level, state-of-the-art photo hides, designed by multi award-winning BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Bence Máté, include the beautiful lagoon hide, two reflection hides, a scavenger hide, and a remarkable overnight hide, offering the possibility of wide angle nocturnal shots of large mammals against the starry sky. You won’t find another place like Zimanga, and we’ll be staying in the heart of the reserve to make the very best of the opportunities.

Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe

Eight nights £3,450 per person sharing, £600 single room supplement.

Join us for an unforgettable eight night photo safari on the Chobe River in northern Botswana/Namibia, one of Africa’s premier wildlife photographic destinations.  We’ll be spending lots of time on and around the river, photographing the abundant big game that congregates here in the dry season and the equally spectacular birdlife. Take a day trip to Victoria Falls to marvel at one of the natural wonders of the world, and spend an evening photographing the amazing African night sky.  Four nights of the trip will be spent aboard the Pangolin Voyager houseboat, where you couldn’t be closer to the wildlife. We’ll have exclusive use of the houseboat, and we’ll again be using the custom-built photo boats for our photography on the river.
