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!

Many thanks to Wild 4 for a truly memorable trip . Stu’s guidance and photography skills provided excellent opportunities to get some great shots. His professionalism and commitment to the trip made the safari ‘special’. Having only 3 photographers per vehicle made an incredible difference. Committed time to ‘get the shot’ was very rewarding. Time to just observe animal behaviour was of great joy for me too. Watching the many elephant families in Kruger their social interactions and sometimes zany behaviour….those memories will stay forever. The accommodations and meals were excellent .Many thanks to Justyna for her wonderful help on the admin side making my booking a dream I have been on trips before but none quite so enjoyable as this one. Would I go again ? definitely yes…… spaces allowing ! Would I recommend to friends ? A big yes to that one….. in fact I already have ! Sincere thanks again to you all

I am a Molecular Biologist by profession and a serious amateur nature photographer and have been on a number of organized trips over the last 10 years with the dual aims of enjoying nature and getting the best images possible. The organization of a two week trip with Wild 4 Photographic Safaris through Kruger National Park I shared with two other photographers and it was as good as I have ever experienced. The Porter family was friendly, knowledgeable and intuitively supportive. Stu really knows his subjects and spared no effort in getting the photographers into the best situation. He has a very pleasant, calm personality and is an accomplished nature photographer and naturalist which means he knows where the light or action is best and often what is about to happen. His vehicle is also well set-up for discriminating photographers. Justyna was just brilliant in getting things organized in the background. Having our own scout vehicle to report activity in the area while we pursued other subjects, worked well, and on a number of occasions provided photo opportunities we would have missed otherwise. In summary; rating out of 10…….no doubt a 10.
