A luxury African safari with a focus on wildlife photography in Botswana.

About the event

If you’ve ever dreamt about travelling on safari in Africa, coming face to face with elephants and learning all about wildlife photography, our new photography adventure tour in Botswana will make your bucket list wishes come true!

Imagine drifting silently down the Chobe River at the corner of 4 African nations, wild elephants lapping at the river’s edge while giraffes meander on the horizon behind a powerful setting sun.

Lions creep across the plains with herds of buffalo keeping a watchful eye between grazes.

A snort of a hippo blasts nearby as you cheers your fellow adventurers with a sparkling wine, enjoying an African sundowner with camera in hand.

This is the Land of Giants, Chobe National Park in Botswana, home to 120,000 elephants, 400 different bird species, and the latest NOMADasaurus Tour!

In October 2024 we will be bringing a very small group of just 8 people to experience Africa’s best wildlife photo safari with us.

Our group of intrepid explorers will be treated to the unique opportunity of spending a few nights on a luxury houseboat right on the Chobe River, with hippos, crocodiles, elephants and buffalo as our neighbours.

We’ll then move to our new base camp, the iconic 4-star lodge owned by Pangolin Photo Safaris, where we’ll enjoy world-class meals and boutique drinks beneath the stars.

The wildlife is the highlight of course, and we’ll be enjoying two safaris every single day, either by boat or truck.

This newest NOMADasaurus itinerary is what wildlife photography lovers dreams are made of, and we’re beyond thrilled to open this adventure up to 8 lucky people.

NOMADasaurus Tours was born out of a mission to bring adventurous travellers on the world’s most epic bucket list experiences.

From Antarctica to Kyrgyzstan, we’ve led intrepid explorers to the far-flung reaches of the globe in search of landscapes, culture and wildlife, with a purpose of connection and creating great imagery.

This brand new and personalised 8-day Botswana photography tour is the latest adventure in our range, and if you’ve always wanted to go on a safari in Africa with a small group of friends it doesn’t get much better than this.

We will start off in the beautiful Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, giving guests the chance to explore one of the world’s 7 Natural Wonders.

After an evening of dinner and drinks we are picked up the following morning by our private transfer and taken across the border to Kasane, Botswana.

We’ll then head straight to the pier where we’ll load up our boat and drive to our incredible, luxurious houseboat located on the Chobe River.

The houseboat will be our home for the next two nights, and our group will have the entire place to ourselves.

Starting that afternoon we’ll go out on our first wildlife safari, using a custom-built photography boat to position ourselves in the best possible places to take incredible images of African animals.

The next day we start early with a coffee and light breakfast on the houseboat before hitting the water before sunrise to see what animals we can find.

We’ll have a few hours of wildlife photography with optimum light before heading back to the houseboat for an early lunch and a siesta.

In the afternoon we go out for another boat drive, staying out past sunset to ensure we get the best views on the Chobe with the wildlife.

Dinner and drinks will be had under the stars while floating gently up the Chobe.

The next morning we have another boat safari on the river then make our way back to Kasane.

We’ll leave the houseboat and check in to the legendary Pangolin Safari Lodge on the edge of the national park.

The 4-star luxury accommodation will be our base for the next 4 nights, and our activities will be a variety of boat safaris and game drives.

During our time at the lodge we’ll also have a series of Adobe Lightroom editing workshops and will provide photo assistance throughout the entire itinerary.

This tour is all-inclusive once we enter Botswana, and you will be treated to world-class meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and 4-star accommodation.

You will be accompanied by the founders of NOMADasaurus, Alesha and Jarryd, throughout your adventure, and we’ll have licensed local guides and drivers to look after us and search for wildlife while out on safari.

In addition we’ll also have a very special guest joining us to provide incredible wildlife photography tips and insights from life in Botswana.

While this is an African safari tour, there is a major focus on photography, and rather than rushing through the park day by day trying to tick off as many animals as we can see, this trip is about slowing down and really studying each animal’s behaviour.

This not only provides greater photography opportunities, but also allows us to really enjoy every moment with these beautiful creatures.

The boats we use for our river safaris are also designed with photographers in mind, with special articulating tripod mounts and swivel chairs so everybody gets the best seat in the house.

Being a photographer is not mandatory for this tour, but at least a basic interest in wildlife photography would greatly enhance your experience.

General wildlife lovers will still thoroughly enjoy this itinerary.

This is going to be an incredible adventure to discover the highlights of the Chobe National Park in Botswana – truly one of the most sensational wildlife destinations in the world.
