SAFARI DATES
2 September 2022 - 9 September 2022 Space available

Botswana’s Okavango Delta is the closest thing to Eden left on the planet. For photographers, the opportunities to capture the best images you’ve ever taken are incomparable – vast skies, flaming sunsets, a jaw-dropping diversity and abundance of wildlife found nowhere else... and not another vehicle in sight.


Join award-winning photojournalist Neil Aldridge and photo editor Sophie Stafford on this unique safari to experience the Delta as never before, take your photography to the next level, and make a difference to local wildlife charities with your images.


In an exclusive arrangement with C4, stay at the secluded Mokolowane Tree House camp in the Okavango. With superb views over the Matsebi River, Mokolowane is one of a few very rare concessions in the Delta that enjoy low visitor numbers – there’s literally no one else around for miles. We’ll take you to all the best vantage points, special places and secret spots in the area, coach you in how to get the best shots and help you to think about your images differently.
