Pangolin Photo Safaris scales up with new camp in the Okavango Delta

Pangolin Photo Safaris has teamed up with Natural Selection to open the Pangolin Khwai Camp in the Khwai Private Reserve – a 200,000ha private concession bordering the Khwai River.

As with the operations in the Chobe, Pangolin will be designing the guest experience around the needs of modern day photographers and safari enthusiasts.

The camp will have a maximum of 12 guests, at any one time, utilising three game viewers. The reserve allows for off-roading at special sightings, as well as night drives and mokoro excursions.

“As a company, Pangolin has always had the needs of photography clients at its foremost thoughts and the potential of this camp to become a world class photo safari destination is immense.” said Toby Jermyn, co-owner of Pangolin Photo Safaris.

Each of the game viewers will be adapted for photographers with bean bag mounts. Limiting each vehicle to a maximum of four clients allows for more freedom of movement of the photographer at a sighting. This also saves the clients, as they would normally have to opt for expensive private vehicles to have this amount of space to work in. The camp will be hosted by a resident photography guide, with cameras available to clients travelling without their own photographic gear.

The Pangolin Khwai Camp will host clients from March 2018, and with high season all-inclusive rates at around $750 per person, offers exceptional value for the wildlife and photographic experience. The camp has seven well-proportioned Meru style tents with en-suite facilities. The communal areas of the lodge have been designed with photographers in mind and feature a dedicated editing and post production area as well as large screens for presentations and hosted workshops.

Gerhard Swanepoel, co-owner of Pangolin says, “Our clients are not after the “bells and whistles” of a high-end lodge. They prioritise time in the bush and photographic opportunities over luxury touches, and by maintaining this price point we hope to satisfy the demand”
