Member Number: 204437 Tel: +27 21 418 2312

Pangolin Photo Safaris is the regions most photo centric tour operator. With packages and offerings across sub Saharan Africa (and beyond) we seek out locations that can accommodate the specific requirements of today's photographically oriented client. We have a permanent base in The Chobe, The Pangolin Chobe Hotel where we operate all year round.

The Pangolin Chobe Hotel sits on the plateau overlooking The Chobe River and Namibia’s Caprivi floodplains which stretch out to the far horizon. The Chobe National Park boundary is a few hundred meters away meaning that with our proximity to the gate we are more often than not the fist vehicle through the gate for game drives. Our boats are moored on the river directly below the Hotel and its a quick five minute transfer to get to them and then straight into the park.

The Pangolin Chobe Hotel is also a short transfer from Kasane International Airport and the Zimbabwe and Zambian Borders.

Our safari planners are on hand to create an itinerary for you that exactly matches your photographic and game viewing ambitions

Learning will be the new luxury on a post Corona safari

If there is one thing, we have learned over the last few months, it’s that time is a very precious commodity and “holiday time” even more so. With the world taking a sabbatical from travel for the immediate future our attention, as members of the safari industry, turns to what will clients be looking for when they return.
