African safaris designed by photographers for photographers

Africa’s premier Photographic Safari operator and lodge owner


At Pangolin we work hard to meet the needs of our photographic clientele and we are constantly developing our photo safari packages to top destinations throughout Southern and East Africa. We have invested in our own properties, predominantly in Botswana, so that we are sure to offer our clients the ultimate photo safari. We pride ourselves in knowing what our clients want photographically as well as offering an authentic wildlife experience to be enjoyed by photographers and non-photographers alike.

We look forward to welcoming you on a Pangolin Photo Safari very soon so please browse through our safari packages and details of our Pangolin Places and then let one of our expert travel planners design your perfect photo safari. We are committed to making your African photographic safari dreams a reality.

Pangolin Places

Pangolin Photo Safaris is unique in that we own and manage our own properties in Botswana. This enables us to control and manage the photo safari experience from start to finish. 

We have also developed strong partnerships with like minded operators and lodge owners throughout Southern and East Africa (and beyond on occasion) so that wherever your itinerary takes you you can be assured of the best possible photographic and hospitality experience.

2018 will see the opening of new properties in The Chobe and The Okavango Delta and plans are in place for further expansion into Namibia and South Africa.


Teaming up to save a species

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.
