Tswalu – a photographer’s paradise
Canon ambassador and professional photographer Marina Cano, recently chose to test the new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III at Tswalu. Marina shot some fantastic images of Tswalu’s diverse wildlife, including the rare and endangered pangolin. Marina loved shooting at Tswalu. “Tswalu is one of the most spectacular places I’ve even been! I left my heart in the Kalahari,” she said.
With your own private vehicle, breath-taking landscapes, and diversity of wildlife, Tswalu offers both the novice and the experienced photographer the opportunity of a lifetime to capture some memorable moments. The private vehicle ensures that our guests have complete flexibility of the safari experience and unlimited time at sightings.
Our field guides are knowledgeable photographers themselves and are always keen to assist, but Tswalu guests do have the opportunity to have a professional photographer on site for private tutoring (prior booking essential and additional costs apply).
Once back at The Motse, when you’ve captured those rare moments in time, your guide will take you to Tswalu’s fully equipped photographic studio and assist you to download and edit your images or videos. You can then choose to print your favourite shots onto canvas and take them home with you.
Tswalu’s abundant butterflies
It is extraordinary to think that 77 butterfly species have been identified at Tswalu, a semi-arid zone that receives on average less than 400 millimeters of rain annually.
