ORYX Photo Tours is proud to present our Women Only Okavango Delta Photo Tour, which takes us to two spectacular and thrilling wildlife areas in the famed Delta.

 

ORYX’s new product, “Women on Safari”, has been conceptualized and designed to offer women who lust for exploring our wild destinations with camera in hand a selection of tours that brings the excitement into traveling to new areas to learn and master how to best utilize your camera and capture your photographic vision, all in an environment of support and comradery.

 

Whether solo or traveling with another, joining a tour filled with other independent, creative women is motivating and empowering as you share, learn and create experiences, memories and photographs together.

 

Our tour begins in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta on a beautiful island in a private concession. Little Vumbura is an intimate camp shaded by the canopy of an ancient forest and surrounded by water as it lies close to large rivers. Offering a combination of both water- and land-based activities, Little Vumbura is a spectacular and diverse wildlife area with sightings that are en par with the very best.

 

Our next and final destination on our photographic journey is as inspiring as the first as we travel to an area of the Delta that covered with palm, mangosteen and fig trees. Kwetsani is located in the centre of the Jao Concession and its the surrounding floodplain is home to some key wildlife species that are found in few other places on Earth, amongst the highly sought-after species.
