Photography, a love affair with life

The Zambezi River is full of photographic potential, a magical, moving destination for photographers of all levels to lose themselves in.

While floating down the river on a boat cruise, raise your camera to the scenes lit by the sunrises or sunsets , the golden light cast over the river and its banks; to the elephant herds coming for a drink and the other wildlife in the reserve on the opposite side of the river; the otters, waterbuck, hippos and crocodiles wading in the water. You can also practice your portraits, on friends, family, and other travel partners, with the Zambezi as your backdrop.

Our guides will be on-board to take care of everything else, pointing out different bird species and special subjects you might miss. They will make sure you're at the right place at the right time and will be on hand with coffee and biscotti, or G&Ts...

For a different view, take to the river on a  canoe  and capture the rapids and riverine vegetation close-up.

If your interest lies in food photography, there are plenty of opportunities to capture  the art of dining  and local foods and ingredients, as served by the Royal Chundu chefs. This could be on a  private picnic , a romantic deck dinner, a lunch river cruise, or while enjoying the different courses of our special Zambian tasting menu.

Consider adding a day trip to  Victoria Falls  onto your photographic adventure, for a chance to capture the Smoke That Thunders for yourself.
