Pangolin Photo Boat on the Chobe River - Botswana
Posted by Wild4 Photo Safaris on 7th Jul 2019
Short Video showing the amazing Pangolin Photo Boat that we use on the Chobe River in Botswana
The Pangolin Photo Boat is by far the BEST way to photograph when you are visiting the Chobe River in Botswana. The team at Pangolin are fantastic and their amazing boat captains know how to manoevre the boats to get you into great positions to photograph the birds and mammals that are found along the Chobe River.
The adjustable photo brackets and gimbal are already on the boat, and if you are bringing your own equipment, all you have to do is mount your Telephoto Lens and enjoy. If you don't have your own equipment, the team at Pangolin Photo Safaris will provide you with a camera, lens and free memory card, which you take with you at the end of your stay.
A stay at the Chobe River is always great, but doing it with Pangolin on their special boat, turns this stay into a huge highlight!

Everything about my first Safari with Wild4 was so outstanding that I was afraid the second would pale in comparison. I needn't have worried! It was a huge success! Communications, details, accommodations all handled expertly by Justyna. Making sure that we got into the right situations and stayed with them long enough to get the shot handled incredibly by Stu. Susan was not a photographer when we began this journey, but Stu's patient tutoring assured that she came home with some fantastic photographs as well! Our heartfelt thanks to the whole Wild4 family! We'll be back...

We have a particular affinity for bird photography, but also enjoy the African game animals. I'm pleased to say we are all thrilled with the entire trip. Stu met us at the airport on day 1, and what was to have been a quick couple hour drive to camp, took all afternoon until sunset, we found so many things to shoot. Then we wanted to do something slightly off the itinerary on day 2, and Stu again accommodated us. It was like that throughout the entire trip, the Porter family was very accommodating. Even though we were in a big national park using public facilities, the Porter family made us feel like we were in our own private game reserve, and the animals were there just for us. Stu's local knowledge of the birds and game is just great, he's a walking guide book. And because he's in Kruger so often, he knows where the best spots are. Also he knows all the other guides, and they share information. And most importantly if you are considering a photo safari, Stu is an accomplished nature photographer himself. He knows the light and how to position and approach for the best shot. He knows what photographers want and how to get it. The experience might be quite different if just any guide were to drive you around. And having a spotting vehicle out searching for game really helped us see some extra animals we wouldn't have seen. The results were outstanding. We saw and photographed all the of the big five, and several seldom seen animals totaling 33 mammal species and 164 bird species. All in all, the trip was great!! highly recommended!
