Botswana is quite simply the bespoke safari destination for connoisseurs, blending a wilderness experience with a luxury African photo safari. The country is relatively small and flat. The human population is tiny, yet the wilderness areas are vast. The entire country is basically one giant wildlife concession, so a Botswana private photo safari offers the most remote and exclusive wildlife viewing of any country.

 

If you wanting to really get away from it all and escape deep into the wilderness but still enjoy a pure luxury African photo safari, then Botswana is the country for you. There is no other safari that blends exclusivity and luxury like a Botswana private photo safari does. A private Botswana photo safari will no doubt see you exploring vast and remote private concessions in the heart of the Okavango Delta and these concessions are as large as game reserves and parks in other countries but have just one or two camps in them.

 

Driving for hours on end and seeing nobody else is what makes a private Botswana photo safari unique.

 

This is the closest you will get to photographing like a National Geographic documentary maker – in splendid wild isolation. The Okavango is one of Africa’s last great wildernesses, a place where the water, desert and sky meet to offer you a truly immersive experience. It is the furthest place you will get from civilization and yet the camps are small and intimate, offering a true luxury African photo safari experience.


A Botswana private photo safari is also one of the very best ways to combine big cat and wild dog photography. There are a number of different camps and concessions to explore on a Botswana photo safari and some camps are uber-luxurious, offering you the ultimate luxury African photo safari. But you can also do an Okavango expedition-style camp, transecting the Okavango by boat and exploring hidden gems. This offers you a more traditional private African photography safari experience.  If you like the sound of taking a dip in the cool refreshing waters, of picnic lunches on islands, of camping under starry skies, then a Botswana mobile camp photo safari is the one for you.

Doing an expedition-style Okavango safari and ending at an uber-luxurious camp makes this the ultimate private African photography safari destination.

Aerial photography safaris in Botswana are also incredible and if you book a private Botswana helicopter photo safari it will include an Okavango Delta helicopter photo safari and a Makgadigadi helicopter photo safari. Flying over the salt pans with flamingoes and zebras below on an aerial photography safari are two experiences that will keep your shutter button firmly pressed. See this aerial zebra portfolio. If you enjoy cultural experiences then a Bushman reenactment from a bygone era is also an incredible photo opportunity that takes place in the Kalahari Desert on your private Botswana photo safari. Add in meerkats, sleep-outs and some of the best elephant photography anywhere, including a custom-built hide for photographers, and you have a country that might just clinch the ultimate title for a private African photography safari. Watch this YouTube video NOW! I will go as far as to say that if you only have time for one safari, then I would say that a bespoke best of Botswana private photo safari is the one to do. The reason I say this is because this is a private African photography safari that offers you the opportunity to be all alone in one of Africa’s last great and untouched wilderness areas – the Okavango, where the land meets the sky.

A Botswana private photo safari allows you to combine pure wilderness with a luxury African photo safari.

Bespoke Photographic Safari Guest Testimonials

'Good morning Greg. I trust you got home safely. Thanks for being such an incomparable guide and company. See you in February, if not before (maybe October).'

Stephen and Eric Cheek (UK)
'It was such a privilege to spend a week with Greg. On all levels he is a joy to spend time in the bush with. Its really apparent through his passion, knowledge and talent why he was The Wildlife Photographer of the Year. We had some amazing sightings. From following mating leopards for 5 hours on my birthday to packs of wild dogs, cheetahs, and 19 different leopards. Oh, and two snakes! And of course, spending some time with Claire was very special to us.'

Deborah Keener Brown (USA)
'Dear Greg, the training and experience with you has been even better than we expected. You bring out the best of Africa as you teach us each day to appreciate the animals and capture the best moments with pictures. You are patient and professional and we look forward to another journey with you. Best to you, Bob 'the camera caddy' and Jacquie.'

Bob and Jacquie Paul (USA)
'Hey Greg, It took three days to download and organize my 5412 files! You blew me away with your kindness, graciousness, and expertise. Okay, so now I am bit and I can't wait to go back. The wild is the only thing that makes sense and I understand what motivates you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for introducing me to your world and for sharing your experience, strength, and hope for the future of conservation.'

Nell Dickerson (USA)
'Greg, thanks so much for the outstanding private safari in the Okavango Delta. The itinerary that you developed gave us a terrific mix of magical Delta experiences, with fine camps and excellent local guides. The most important ingredient in this terrific experience, however, was you. On the photographic front, we were inspired by your commitment to artistic creativity and excellence, as well as ethical practices, in the capturing of wildlife images and greatly appreciated your graciously shared world class photographic expertise. We were delighted to find that you are also a knowledgeable naturalist, with wide-ranging expertise and engaging stories (and a voluminous reference library on your phone!) about both the fauna and the flora of Africa. We were encouraged by your commitment to conservation! We look forward eagerly to joining you in the Masai Mara next year and in the South Rift Valley!'

Mark and Bonnie Overgaard (USA)
'Since our very first contact, Greg gave me lots of advices about safari destinations and about photography. He always answered my hundreds mail (sorry Greg 😉 ) helping me to find and book the best travel for shooting hippos and to buy some photographic stuffs I have never seen before. I have known a man who really loves Africa and wildlife and most important, who knows lot of things about Africa and wildlife, but at the same time you can talk to him as you talk to one of your friend. I dont write about his knowledge of photo gears and technique as it would be superfluous. I can only say that my skill level is increased by several steps. His advices during safaris were, in my opinion, the best part of my entire time spent in Kenya. During my time spent in the bush, I really feel myself like a photographer, not like a tourist. Thank you, thank you so much!'

Nicola Cappelletti (Italy)
'We all really enjoyed our family photographic safari with you in Zambia. The Lower Zambezi is a beautiful destination and the most scenic we have seen so far. Robin and I have improved our photographic capabilities which we hopefully won't lose till we see you again😁. Thank you for the personal message in your wonderful AWE book. Have fun with your next trips and hope to see you again soon.' See the adventure on YouTube
