Photographic Safaris at Royal Chundu

Wildlife, sunsets, portraits and food - whatever your subject, you'll find it here

Photography, a love affair with life

The Zambezi River is full of photographic potential, a place for photographers of all levels to lose themselves in. While floating down the river on a boat cruise, there’s plenty reason to raise the camera whether that's for the sunrises and  sunsets , and the golden light they shed on the river and its banks; the elephant herds and other wildlife in the reserve across from us; and even the elusive otters and leopards and less elusive hippos and crocodiles wading in the water. Along with wildlife and land (and water) scape photography, you can 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'll make sure you're at the right place at the right time and they'll be on hand with coffee and biscotti (or your drink of choice) when you're taking a break.

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

If food photography is more your thing, there are plenty of opportunities to capture cuisine and  the art of dining , 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 seven different courses on 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.
