On safari in the Khwai Private Reserve, Botswana with our CEO 

The overall winner (plus partner) and the two runners-up (plus their partners) will enjoy a group safari with our CEO Simon Espley and his wife Lizz.

This ultimate private safari will include 5 nights all paid in Khwai Private Reserve, Botswana in two of Natural Selection’s camps – Hyena Pan and the 5-star Tuludi. This group of eight will enjoy two nights at Hyena Pan, with exclusive access to their fantastic sunken photographic hide and three nights at Tuludi.

Khwai Private Reserve is a 200,000-hectare pristine wilderness of floodplains, natural pans and forests of mopane and leadwood trees – teeming with wildlife. The reserve borders the Moremi Game Reserve to the south, and Chobe National Park to the east – both of which are part of the larger Okavango Delta World Heritage Site. Our winners will explore this stunning area on game drives, bush walks, mokoro (subject to water levels) and in the underground photo hide, and the emphasis will be on experiencing a safari like few get to do. Expect a few surprises along the way…

This sojourn with other talented photographers is likely to have them reminiscing for the rest of their lives! Read about previous winner safaris here: 2020, 2019 and 2018 .

Dates (five nights): Arriving 19th September, and departing 24th September, 2021.

Transport: Winners must organise their own transport to and from Maun International Airport in Botswana, and overnight costs in Maun (if required).

Costs: Africa Geographic will pay for all costs of this safari once the group members arrive in Maun for departure to Khwai – excluding gratuities and items of a personal nature.
