Photo tour Botswana
This diversified photo tour Botswana is packed with the highlights of Botswana and takes you to the three most beautiful game viewing regions of the African country. Botswana lies in the heart of southern Africa and is bordered by Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia. The economic and political stability distinguishes the country from most states in Africa. In addition, Botswana has taken a special approach to tourism and limits the number of visitors in order to protect the beauty of nature and wildlife. Thanks to this exclusivity, in Botswana you can experience the fascinating wildlife in its natural habitat like in no other country and without crowds.
The onset of the rainy season will provide you with spectacular wildlife encounters on this unique journey. In the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park, the animals congregate at the remaining waterholes and fantastic scenarios occurs. In the Kalahari, the first raindrops revive the parched land and attract wildlife. You can capture all these observations with your camera on this trip.
Our luxury lodges are ideally situated for game drives on land and water. You will travel by jeep, on foot, or by motorboat. You will also photograph the animals from underground bunkers/hides at waterholes. With this varied programme, you are sure to return from Botswana with spectacular photos and memories.
During the photo tour Botswana, you will be hosted by renowned wildlife photographer James Gifford. James has lived in Botswana for years and has an excellent knowledge of the parks and wildlife.
The photo safari is exclusively limited to only 4 guests. Don’t miss out on this varied and unforgettable 10-day trip.

As always, excellently organized trip to the Kalahari with the guidance of Hannes Lochner. His knowledge of the Kalahari and photography gives even experienced wildlife photographers a final tip for a very special photo. Glad to travel at any time again with Hannes and Amazing Views.
This was our first trip with Amazing Views and I can only say that it was very well organized. Hannes Lochner is a great photographer and an extremely likeable person. He showed us "his Kalahari", which is so different from the usual safari destinations. Many thanks to Hannes and the Amazing Views team.
