Travel Itinerary: Pangolin Two Iconic Rivers Photo Safari

Day 1 to 4

Travellers explore the magnificent Chobe River from the unique houseboat referred to as The Pangolin Voyager. Guests spend the first three nights of their river photo safari in one of of the well appointed, air conditioned, en-suite cabins. Custom built photo boats take guests out to admire the surrounding wildlife where many photographic opportunities are available. The meals are freshly and well prepared by the chefs and served on the middle deck while drifting along the river which is flanked by herds of elephants, hippo pods, plenty of plains game and birdlife everywhere.

Day 4 to 7

On the fourth day of this exciting photo journey, guests disembark the houseboat after breakfast and head to the nearby Kasane airport where they board the charter flight to the wildlife rich Khwai Private Reserve. This flight takes approximately an hour. Upon landing guests are met by the team of the Pangolin Khwai Camp.

With its sheer size of 200 000 hectare, the Khwai Private Reserve is likely to be one of the most productive and photographically rewarding areas of Botswana. When staying at this camp guests enjoy a healthy mixture of bushveld, river systems and wooded areas in which the wildlife guides are able to off-road at animal sightings and also provide night drives which are not allowed in most of the other reserves. This affords plenty of opportunities to photograph predator action.
