As part of our recently launched travel division we will be sharing a monthly wrap up of some of the itineraries that guests have asked us to put together for them. Hopefully these will inspire you to explore and travel to new and exciting destinations in search of iconic images!


Mwiba Lodge

5 Nights Mwiba Lodge | Southern Serengeti

Mwiba Lodge, the newest addition to the Legendary Expeditions’ portfolio, is set among massive stone boulders, ancient coral trees and acacias, overlooking the Arugusinyai River cascading down its rocky gorge. Vast and privately controlled, this exquisite 126,000 acre wildlife reserve is lush with color-infused botanicals, saturated with wildlife and features 33 freshwater springs.

Our guests enjoyed their safari which was perfectly times to co-incide with the migratory wildebeest herds arriving on the southern plains to give birth.

Pelo Camp, Savuti Camp & The Chobe Princess | Botswana and Namibia

3 iconic regions of Botswana combined into one incredible safari itinerary. The word pelo means ‘heart’ – a fitting name as, from the air, the island on which Pelo Camp is situated is heart-shaped. It is also found pretty much as deep into the heart of the Okavango Delta as it is possible to be. This intimate camp has five spacious, en-suite tents with both indoor and outdoor showers and a covered front veranda from which to look out over the water. The main area comprises a tented dining area and lounge situated under impressive wild date palms, jackalberry and Natal mahogany trees. There is also an outdoor boma area, a swimming pool and a raised platform built onto an old anthill. Given the camp’s situation on an exquisite, small island surrounded by permanent water, activities focus on mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe) excursions in the open, shallow floodplains as well as boating and walking.

Savuti Camp is located on the Savute Channel, which for many years was a dry, wide-open ribbon of grassland snaking through the adjoining woodland. In 2008, the waters returned, and Savuti Camp now has front-row seats to view the abundant game that has congregated and adapted in its wake, from hippo to a variety of waterbirds. This and the varied habitat attract huge herds of elephant – particularly in the dry season – as well as plains game and healthy predator numbers. Savuti is about 17 kilometres ”downstream” from the Zibadianja Lagoon – the source of the Channel.

The Chobe Princess is a luxury safari houseboat operating on both the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers. They are a perfect platform to experience all that the Chobe has to offer with the added benefits of being on the Namibian side of the river. Quieter, more secluded and personalized, they are ideal for families, couples or groups who wish to enjoy the very best of an African river safari. Whilst on the Chobe Princess you can cruise over 70kms of the river and overnight in some of the most scenic areas on the Chobe.

Very few people can tell you what their passion in life is. Even fewer will be able to tell you that what they do for a living is in fact their passion. My love for the bush and conservation took me on journey which would not only allow me to explore the continent which fascinates me so much, but to share my passion for photography and conservation with others.
