Welcome to Chobe! Today we'll meet our fellow photographers and expert host, before taking our very first safari drive together - eyes peeled for the big 5! Then we’ll bond over an included dinner at the hotel. Food and drink are all-inclusive, so no need to go easy on dessert. After a few sundowners to end the evening on a high, it's time to start thinking about the adventures we'll share tomorrow.



Photo Safari

It's safari time! We're hooking you up with a Canon DSLR camera, telephoto lenses, memory cards - and of course tips on how to get the perfect shot from our expert guide. After filling up on breakfast, we'll take a boat and vehicle safari into the National Park, in private vessels fitted with camera mounts. After a morning trying to snap elephants, buffaloes and more, we'll show each other our best snaps over lunch, before heading out again.

Chobe Hotel

After an unforgettable afternoon safari we'll head back for dinner.

Photo Editing

Then it's time to review your work and relive this morning's best shots! Why not spend some time turning a good picture into a truly special one. Or simply just kick and back and watch the sun go down.



Photo Safari

Rise and shine! We're not done yet. After breakfast today we're headed out for one more photographic safari, so eyes peeled for the big-5! After filling up our camera reel one last time, we'll head back to the hotel to check out. But the photos and memories we made will last a lifetime.
