african landscapes and wildlife

7-26 May 2017

 
 

There are few places on the planet that offers the diverse scenery as the counties in Southern Africa of Namibia and Botswana. This safari has been designed to allow the serious photographer to capture landscape images while enjoying photographing the wildlife of these two Southern African countries.

We will travel by road in Namibia allowing us to stop to capture images during our journey. Our accommodation will be in deluxe lodges and tented camps in both Namibia and Botswana.

Our partner on this Focus on Africa safari is Wilderness Safaris, a pioneer in conservation and community development projects.

Your safari guide in Namibia will know how to “follow the light” and get you to places where you can capture fantastic images of Southern Africa’s landscapes and magnificent wildlife. While in Botswana, you will be looked after by a professional safari guide at the camp that knows how to maximize your photographic opportunities in “the last great wilderness.”
