I participated in a group travel to the Chobe River, the Delta and the Kalahari. The photo hosts had endless patience and helped me progress with my photographic skills. The staff at the Pangolin hotel and the staff at the lodges were very kind, and the local guides were extremely knowledgable. All in all, I think there is no better way to combine wildlife experience and photography. I had big expectations before the trip, but everything was even better than I had imagined. I can't wait to go back! Thank you Team Pangolin!

Botswana is a fantastic destination for viewing and photographing wildlife. However, it is better to rely on an organization that knows the region, the wildlife and if you are a photographer, photography. I was lucky enough to take this trip with Pangolin Photo Safari. A true professional organization. Competent and super nice people who helped me see and understand what I saw. I would like to especially thank Danielle Carstens. She was a competent, attentive and very sympathetic coach. I think all the Pangolin photographers who guide tourists are good, but I know Danielle and highly recommend her.

Our stay at the pangolin hotel was unforgettable! We feel incredibly fortunate to have had Danielle as our personal guide for our evening and morning drives. She is an outstanding wild-life photographer and a proven expert on all camera brands, lenses and settings. Danielle even managed to help each of us on our individual skill levels. She supported and challenged usbso calmly and effectively that we were all able to learn an amazing amount and came home with great shots. Her suggestions have deepened and stimulated our photographic knowledge and skills in the long term and we have greatly appreciated her particularly sympathetic nature, humor and composure. We really enjoyed her company both on the boat and on the dinner table. We felt very comfortable in the hotel, enjoyed the cozy ambience at the large table as well as the fine and varied food. We thank the pangolin team very much for their outstanding hospitality! PS: A look at Danielle's photo website is worthwhile

Pangolin Photo Safaris is fantastic! We had the most amazing three week trip this past July thanks to Pangolin. Accomodations were lovely, everything was well planned and they really care about their guests. The photo hosts are amazing and just want you to have a great time, and want you to get great photographs. I went with my husband who has barely picked up a camera since I've known him. Within a few days they turned him into someone who not only knows the basics of how to operate a DSLR but also who has now developed a passion for photography, especially bird photography. In addition to learning about exposure, composition, lighting and background, they also do Lightroom tutorials on site. The photo hosts are patient and are open to everyone - even those with minimal photography experience like my husband. Can't recommend these guys enough! We hope to return next summer for another trip with Pangolin!

Highly recommend for people interested in photography, beginners and experts alike. They coordinated our entire trip even beyond Safari. The instructors, equipment, accommodations and locations are all first rate. Thoroughly enjoyed our whole trip, we’ll be back. Arrived as strangers, parted as friends!
