Africa - A Paradise For Photographers (Part II)

posted on 13th of january, 2009

Hi again,

In my previous Blog I described our visited in Namibia.

Well after Namibia we got to Botswana where we visited the delta and Chobe river.

The delta is a huge area of a shallow lake/river/swamp. We got to a deserted area by Mokoro.
We camped for three days in the delta and got really close encountered with the wildlife (an elephant was
walking 2-3 meters from our tent at night).

During the day we went for bush walks and we were able to see some wildlife:

After the cmping we took a flight over the delta and this is how it looks from a light plane:

After the delta we got to Chobe river which is a border for 4 countries (Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe & Zambia),
we took a sunset cruise and again the wildlife we saw was amazing:

That's it for now...
Hope you enjoyed it,

I totally agree! For all you photographers and soccer fans out there: come and visit South Africa for the soccer world cup in 2010!!! :-) If someone is planning to visit my home town (Port Elizabeth), let me know and we can meet for some wildlife shootings (with our cameras only!).

I've been to Africa a couple of times, also Botswana. Camped in the wild in de Delta and this has been an amazing experience. Unfortunately I didn 't have a digital camera back then. When I see you're wonderful pictures, I know one thing for sure: I have to go back and this time armed with a digital camera ! Thanks for sharing.

You're killing me! Now I want a macro and good telephoto. I love wildlife but don't have the lens to get the really good shots, unless the creatures will be still and pose. Beautiful! Someday I may travel again..........

Hi Peter, why have you not done this trip or is it something planned still? I must admit, I have been criticised for my PF being too "limited" in terms of subject matter, however, photography for me is the art of taking images of the things you are passionate about, and though I have tried other styles of photography and will continue to do so, I will always be "limited" by taking pictures of wildlife as my great passion. I am sure Ami will tell you, there is something magical about getting close up and personal with the African Wildlife experience.
