A Long Lens in Botswana is a collection of wildlife and landscape images from Pam and Wayne’s travels to one of the world’s great wilderness destinations.
Botswana has the world’s largest elephant population (around 130,000). It’s a wildlife photographer’s paradise with a strong environmental protection ethic and a zero tolerance to poaching. Whilst some poaching does occur, Botswana fares better than most of its neighbours.
The lush heart of the famed Okavango Delta is encircled by vast tracts of parched Kalahari sand which comprises 70% of Botswana’s land mass. The delta’s intricate maze of lakes, canals and marshes is flushed with rainfall runoff from the Angolan highlands; A gift of fertility that nurtures a haven for wildlife and a jewel for photographers.
These images are from their travels in 2013, 2014 and 2016. The Panhandle, Okavango Delta, Linyanti Marshes, Savuti Channel and the Makgadikgadi Pan are all represented.
