Photographic River Safari

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 – the sunrises and  sunsets , and the golden light they shed on the river and its banks in between; the elephant herds and other wildlife in the reserve across from us; the elusive otters and leopards and less elusive hippos and crocodiles wading around you 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 in the background.

Our guides will be on board to take care of everything else, pointing out the 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 drinks of your choice.

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

If food photography is your thing, there are many different settings in which to try your hand at capturing cuisine and  the art of dining , as served by the Royal Chundu chefs – whether on a  private picnic , at a romantic dinner on the deck at Island Lodge or River Lodge, a lunch cruise on the river, or a breakfast buffet, tea beside a campfire, and the seven different courses of our special Zambian tasting menu.

Consider adding a day trip to the  Victoria Falls  to your photographic adventure at Royal Chundu, for a chance to capture the Smoke That Thunders for yourself.  Contact us  to find out more…
