Welcome to Pangolin Photo Safaris

Our company was launched in 2011 with the firm belief that everyone is, or at least has the potential, to be a wildlife photographer.
All that is required is the means to take a picture – a camera – and someone to show you how to use it.

Whether you are a seasoned professional or absolute beginner there is a place for everyone at Pangolin.

Our safari planners are on hand to create an itinerary for you that exactly matches your photographic and game viewing ambitions so please browse through the website and contact us so we can start to build your perfect safari.

We look forward to welcoming you on a Pangolin Photo Safari soon

We can’t talk more highly of Pangolin and thank them very warmly for a wonderful holiday.

Janet, United Kingdom

The photo boats are incredible, well equipped with all the resources you need to create magical wildlife photography. If you come to the Chobe and don’t do a photo tour with Pangolin you’re missing out!

Courtney, Canada

This was an incredible trip. Pangolin arranged everything and deserves top scores for coordinating the logistics.

Dave, United States of America

This is truly the way to do a game drive if visiting Chobe National Park. The people of Pangolin are amazing and turned this game drive into one of the most memorable events in my life!

Keith, United States of America

This was the most memorable activity of our holiday! What a treat to be able to use such wonderful camera equipment, with tuition and a guide, in such an amazing location.

Berrie, United Kingdom

These guys know what they are doing! We were with Pangolin for 5 days on a recent two stop photo safari. Pangolin handled the Chobe part of the trip in Kasane and on the Pangolin Voyager houseboat and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish.

Rob, United Kingdom

A wonderful experience, since the photo teachers and guide are very very knowledgable. They bring you in the best position to take your pictures, they know their equipment very well, and by experience, they can almost ‘read’ animal behaviour.

Marjoelien, The Netherlands

Never, and I mean never, was so excellent guided!

Heidi, Austria

I loved being in and on the Chobe. The amount of game and birds one gets to see really close up is amazing. I am just a happy snapper who enjoys seeing wildlife but with Guts’ fun instruction in easy to grasp chunks I was surprised how much I learnt and the quality of some of my pics.

Alison, South Africa

Pangolin Photo Safaris is proud to be the founding partner of a new non-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation of the most highly trafficked wildlife species on the continent: the African Pangolin.

Through a three-pronged approach of Publicity, Participation and Protection, the NGO works with partners in the tourism, conservation and corporate fields with the aim increasing general awareness of the species; contributing towards much-needed research, and supporting law enforcement in combating the illegal wildlife trade that is threatening the survival of this species.
