Pangolin Photo Safaris

Pangolin was conceived by two individuals in 2011, who saw a potential demand for photographic support of wildlife safaris in Botswana. They began with conducted photo safaris, added a houseboat on the Chobe, then a hotel in Kasane in 2018. The hotel has 14 rooms and overlooks the Chobe River form an elevated site in Kasane. The boat dock is only five minutes away. Pangolin has several eight chair photo boats, each with swivel chairs and gimbel arrangements for guest’s cameras. Each trip is led by a photo professional; in our case we were well educated by Dennis, who happened to be a high school classmate of our friend Bee of Elephant Havens.

The hotel is very comfortable, and has a main hall with mounted photos taken by their professional. Rooms are quite large and rather rustic in nature with exposed piping and so on. Meals were very nice, and served in a group setting which made making acquaintances quite easy.

Karen and I can certainly recommend Pangolin as a short stop at the end of a safari, or as a focused stay to learn the art of wildlife photography.
