Our Wildlife Paradise Photo Safari itinerary is back for 2020 with a couple select refinements to further maximize your time in each of these exceptional wildlife areas in
Southern Africa, including the fabulous Post-Safari Extension in Zambia. We will be your Safari Leaders and Photo Guides for this private safari offered by Eyes On Africa. This program is always rich with incredible game viewing and photography opportunities throughout. Each of these locations is superb for observing and photographing leopards. African wild dog are also found in each of these beautiful, wild, and remote locations.
“As very seasoned African travelers we rank this trip among the best we have ever taken. The many leopard, lion, elephant and wild dog encounters were especially amazing… Five leopard at one time!!!.”
—Alan & Jo Ann H., 2016 Safari
The main safari program will offer you game outings daily from August 15-25. Not only will you enjoy a diverse range of premier wildlife destinations, 2020 includes quite luxurious safari camps and lodges throughout.
You will start with 3 nights at Mashatu Euphorbia Villas in the Northern Tuli Game Reserve, in the remote, easternmost corner of Botswana (Mashatu Private Reserve). Your Mashutu wildlife experience is enhanced with their below-ground viewing and photo hides—stand eye-to-eye with birds or photographing elephants from the toes up. From Mashatu you will continue on to South Africa for 3 nights at MalaMala Sable Camp within the Sabi Sand Private Reserve where the Big Five are often seen all on the same day (MalaMala Private Reserve, bordering Kruger National Park). Then move to the renown Chitabe Camp located in the Chitabe private concession in the south-east Okavango Delta of Botswana for 4 nights. Here, along with fantastically productive game drives in this predator rich area, you will have an option for a breathtaking doors-off helicopter flight over the Delta, an experience not to be missed.
The extension will take you to Zambia for 5 nights, August 25-30. After an early game drive at Chitabe Camp, fly to Lusaka for a brief overnight at the Radisson Blu Hotel en route to our destination, the award-winning Chiawa Camp for 4 nights in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Here you will have game outing opportunities each and every day, enjoying both water and land-based activities. You’ll enjoy very different viewpoints and experiences for viewing and photographing wildlife from the river via pontoon boats or canoe (they paddle, you enjoy), as well as opportunities for fishing, and walking safaris as well.
