The Ultimate Photographer's Safari

Aspiring and veteran photographers alike will earn a deeper appreciation for their craft while on safari in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Take your photography skills to the next level when you go on this safari to Kafue National Park, Mana Pools National Park and Hwange National Park.

Kafue National Park is Zambia's biggest and oldest National Park. Kafue is vast, remote and utterly wild, and Shumba Camp is the perfect camp from which to explore it. Several overlapping pride territories meet here at the ‘lion’s camp.’ Panoramic floodplain views are dotted with herds of puku and lechwe, and occasional stands of fig and palm trees. There’s a unique phenomenon in this area because it’s a low-lying depression in the plains, it gets cold in the early mornings, so you get a mist belt that slowly burns off as the sun rises. With all camps facing east, it makes for extraordinary photographs with the misty contrasts. Float high above the plains in a hot air balloon, the best way to see this scenic and remote ecosystem while looking out for wildlife below. End with a champagne breakfast!

Located in northern Zimbabwe, the life-giving power of the Zambezi River makes Mana Pools National Park one of Zimbabwe’s most lush and flourishing regions. Ruckomechi Camp enjoys incredible views across the Zambezi to the towering escarpment on the Zambian side of the river. Albida trees provide both shade and seed pods that are beloved of elephants, meaning that these charismatic creatures are never far away. A boat cruise along the mighty Zambezi is a wonderful way to see wildlife and waterbirds from a different perspective. For the more adventurous – there’s the option of canoeing along this famous river!

Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe is renowned for its large herds of elephants and buffalo as well as apex predators such as lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah. The terrain is varied and the great contrasts between wet and dry seasons graphically illustrate the life-giving properties of water. Birdlife in the area is prolific (400+) and varied, species frequenting teak woodlands as well as those more commonly found in the drier Kalahari are both present. Hwange is known for its prolific summer or green season game viewing, and Linkwasha adds an extra dimension during the dry season, when wildlife streams to drink from the pan immediately in front of the camp. Enjoy the thrill of getting your feet on the ground on a walking safari in the company of Linkwasha’s knowledgeable and highly experienced safari guides.
