Fly out to to your small and uncrowded camp the Okavango Delta. Arrive at the camp, drop your luggage, have some tea and brunch and head out in a private game drive, at an eco friendly camp in a private concession in the the heart of the Okavango Delta. Then back to the lodge for dinner, then settle by the camp fire before retiring to bed.







Wake up with hot tea or coffee brought to your room. A quick breakfast before embarking on a game drive, will be the choice of the morning. Back for lunch and relaxing. Afternoon tea will be followed by a game drive in our private jeep. Sun downers are spectacular out there.

Wake up with hot tea or coffee brought to your room.

Mid day - Fly to the newly opened camp located in deep in the Okavango Delta, set on the southeastern side of Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana, overlooking the Gomoti River and its floodplains,After unpacking and a quick lunch, we head out for a private afternoon game drive. Then back to the camp for dinner. This is your home for the next 3 nights.

Early morning wake up call with coffee or tea/a quick breakfast and out with cameras loaded for a morning game drive in our private jeep. Back for lunch, then an afternoon game drive up until time for dinner.

We head out before sunrise for a private morning game drive, and arrive back at camp for brunch. A few hours rest, then out we go again to maximize our photography time.

In the morning, up again before sunrise and head out for an early morning game drive. We will game drive until the plane comes. We will head back to Maun, then Johannesburg. The tour is now over. If you wish to stay more nights in Jo'berg, please make reservations.

This is a photographic tour and not a workshop, you will need to have some working knowledge of your camera. The action goes down fast and even though I am helping with the settings, you have to know where things are on your camera.

Your fitness level should be that you can carry you own camera gear and be able to walk to your room or tent. You should be able to walk short distances with your gear on as well and get in and out of the jeeps and boats. You will have to climb up in the jeeps, a good balance and arm strength is required. I do talk and evaluate each guest before approving, as this is for photographers.

PLEASE READ: There is no smoking while out on the game drives, or perfume.

I like to talk to my guests and evaluate your equipment and make recommendations on what you might want to rent to be able to achieve the images of a lifetime.
