Photographic safari in Botswana

Photographic safaris are very popular in Botswana due to the wildlife density and the relaxed attitude animals have around vehicles and boats. The best way to get the most out photography on safari is to book the experience with a specialised photographic safari operator. These companies have game viewing vehicles kitted out with camera mounts, swivelling seats, and equipment that will enhance a photographer’s experience. Boat cruises on the Chobe River often bring guests right up close to elephant, hippo, and buffalo, in addition to highly sought after bird species, such as the African skimmer. A photographic safari operator will have a trained guide who knows how to manage a sighting for the best photographic results. Photography can take time and patience, so it is best to hire a private guide and to book with a group aiming for the same experience.
