Pete Dobré African Photography Safari
What is shown below is just a snap shot of the African Photography Safari.If you go to my blog you will see much more on the African Photography Safari where you can scroll right down below and you’ll see several videos which also give you a snap shot of what you come across while on Tour with myself.
Pete’s Best African Safari Tours
Pete’s African Photography Safari takes in two different trips.One is the the best of Namibia and the other is the best of Botswana. What I have done is taken the best of both worlds and combined them together.
Namibia is a stunning country and is ideal for the African Photography Safari. On this part of the trip we explore the wonderful Etosha National Park. What i love about this part for my African Photography tours is that all of the waterholes are open and you clear access to the animals that come to the water hole for drinking. you will be inspired and moved when this happens.
Another highlight and there are so many of the African Photography Safari is our journey to Sossusvlei which is an experience that will leave you speechless. These are the highest dunes in the world and they offer so many photographic opportunities of the Pete Dobré African Photography Safari.
As an extension to this part of the African Photography Safari there is a helicopter flight over the dunes either at sunrise or near sunset and this hour flight with the doors taken off is a must. You will be blown away, you will be left in awe as the dunes run as far as the eyes can see to the coast and the compositions ate endless..
Botswana is also a blessing to my guest as we travel to the Chobe River where you will photograph from a special boat that is made for photographers. I have included this every year on the Pete Dobré African Photography Safari as what you see from the boat will take you to another level in your photography. The boat is purpose built with a 360 degree seat and a special tripod that is mounted to the seat. The boat company also supply their own cameras and lens for the guests to use but you are also free to use your own gear of you feel more comfortable using your own.The boat is designed to fit into places where the bigger boats can’t fit.
Another highlight on the Africa Photography Safari is our journey to Victoria Falls. The waterfalls have over 15 viewing points and with local knowledge from myself, there is one viewing point that will give you a rainbow over the falls but that only happens at a certain time of the day. You will walk away from the falls inspired and you will pinch yourself that you are there.
These are only a few of the highlights of the Pete Dobré African Photography Safari as there are too many to mention them all. Join me and lets be inspired together.
What gear do I shoot in Africa? – For myself the perfect combination is the 7dmark2 at 10 frames a second and the 100-400 f5.6 mark2 lens. For me this is sensational as it is light enough compared to the monster lens of the 400mm/500, f4 or 5.6, The 100-4005.6 is versatile and with the crop factor of the sensor becomes the perfect combination for wild life photography. 99.5% of the images on this page was taken with the above set up.
This is the specail purpose built boat that I use for my guests and it is sensational and a blessing to be able to use this boat which is built for photographers on the water. These are the things that I will always try and acquire for the Pete Dobré African Photography Safari wherevere I go.
Your accommodation in Africa is always stunning and when you walk into the places, you are always left in awe, this is Africa!!!
