Why choose The Chobe for your Safari Destination

When the idea for Pangolin Photo Safaris was “born” there were plenty of discussions between Guts and Toby as to which cameras to buy or what boat and vehicles should be used but one decision was made in complete agreement and was, in fact, an easy one … where we were going to start?

It is our firm belief that The Chobe is the best year-round wildlife photography destination in Africa. There is always something to photograph in The Chobe! Add to that the option to photograph from the land as well as the water on our custom photo boats and you have everything you need for a world-class photo safari destination.

Along with the largest elephant population in Africa along, great predator sightings and spectacular birdlife, there is almost everything that you might want to see and photograph on a safari.

Chobe’s location between two other iconic destinations (Victoria Falls and The Okavango Delta) means incorporating our home into extended safari itineraries is also very easy and something we as a company specialise in.
