Day 1: Arrival to South Africa After your individual travel to Polokwane we meet in the afternoon in the hotel. Hannes Lochner will give an introduction to various aspects of wildlife photography.
Day 2: On to Botswana You will be driven in a comfortable minibus to the border of Botswana (journey time approx. 2.5 hours). After crossing the border, the ranger of the lodge is already waiting for us. In a short drive we reach the lodge where you obtain your room. In the late afternoon we set out for the first game drive. With a little luck, we will already find the first animals and start taking pictures.
Day 3 – 6: In the middle of the action The private reserve in the south of Botswana is very varied in landscape and has a great richness of animals. Since we are in a private area, the vehicles are allowed to drive off-road to offer you the best perspectives for taking pictures. The area is known for regular sightings of leopards, cheetahs and lions. We will photograph 2 - 3 times from underground hides. With a little luck you will be able to take spectacular pictures from unique angles.
Your photo guide Hannes Lochner is always available to you for useful tips and tricks. Between game drives, you can relax in the camp. Depending on your wishes and needs, Hannes offers short tutorials on different areas of photography. Of course, he also discusses with you about already captured photos and helps you to shoot even better pictures during the next game drive.
Day 7: Back to the civilization You will undertake one last game drive in the early morning before driving back to Polokwane. Your individual return or onward journey begins.
