Camera Talk: Travel Portrait Photography

Travel Portrait Photography Travel Portrait Photography in Botswana I remember once taking a photograph of a man in Botswana when I was younger. His face was intriguing – beautiful and expressive. I knew it was going to make for an interesting photograph. He saw me take the shot from a short distance and was angry that I had not asked his permission. I had invaded his privacy and he walked away furious. When I looked back on the photograph I couldn’t see what had initially inspired me to photograph him, only the anger I had made him...

Little Known Migrations from Acacia Africa

The Annual Migration in the Masai Mara is without a doubt one of the main reasons to opt for a safari holiday, but Acacia Africa has uncovered some less well-known migratory extravaganzas, with opportunities to view some spectacular wildlife including, celebrity sharks, dragonflies, and literally, millions of sardines. Dubbed “the greatest shoal on earth,” the sardine run on South Africa’s Wild Coast holds two titles – the world’s largest animal migration also featuring the greatest gathering of predators on the planet. Sharks, dolphins, Cape...

Detach in the Okavango Delta

Posted by on 7:00 am in Announcements, Botswana News | 0 comments

Set on a secluded island in a 120,000-acre private concession in the heart of Botswana’s famed Okavango Delta, Xaranna Tented Camp serves as an oasis amidst the winding waterways. The only way to get there is boating through the channels, which are created when elephants and hippos walk through the tall grass. There are no televisions, phones, cell reception or internet access and guests spend their days exploring the terrain and wildlife and evenings enjoying fine food and listening to the sounds of Botswana. The region offers some of...

Border-less Wildlife

Border-less Wildlife

On the little stretch of Caprivi, where the colonial politics of the past have arbitrarily divided the land into Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, and Angola, wildlife knows no borders. The river here serves as the divide, and its name changes every hundred miles or so. Birds here are as colorful as I’ve ever seen. Carmine bee-eaters sunbathe on low branches, and I photograph them in all their magnificence as they let me get surprisingly close. Neither them nor the elephants that cross the river need passports. I wish I had the same kind of...

Caprivi People

Posted by on 10:58 am in Africa, Botswana, Namibia | 0 comments

Namibia differs from Botswana like day from night, except for Namibia’s Caprivi Strip. On a map, it looks like the neck of a guitar, and stretches for over three hundred kilometers west to east, although it’s only thirty to seventy kilometers wide. Along its seldom used roads are scattered tiny mud-huts and skinny livestock. Most of the structures are round, with a frame of thick branches and walls made of cow dung-sand mix. Once I asked villagers if they’d ever attempted building walls of elephant dung (just seems like an...

Budget Botswana

Posted by on 10:39 am in Botswana, ITKT Blogs | 1 comment

Given the cost of reaching Botswana’s tourist attractions, I’ve been watching my budget closer than usual, though I still didn’t think it would have come to dumpster-diving. Well, I was wrong – I did end up at the city dump. Contemplating alternative access options to the next and last of Botswana’s overpriced national parks, I and my teammates were driving through the outskirts of Kasane, when a large flock of marabou storks on a hill caught our attention. It was getting late, and good light was escaping with the...
