About this book

Inspired by Africa's unique beauty, Shem Compion, in the second instalment of a three-part series, explores the best photography spots in Botswana and Namibia. Insider's Guide: Top Wildlife Photography Spots in Botswana and Namibia provides a comprehensive guide to visiting some of the most remote destinations in the world. The daunting questions of when to go, how to get there, where to stay and what to do are quickly answered. The detailed and instructive photographic notes provide up-to-date information on the vital technical aspects of photography. In addition, Insider's Guide: Top Wildlife Photography Spots in Botswana and Namibia is a guide to understanding animal behaviour – a photographer's greatest asset. Insider's guide uncovers the wonders of Botswana from the Okavango Delta, Deception Valley, to the Northern Tuli Game Reserve and many more. In Namibia, discover the splendour of the Southern Deserts, the lesser known locations in Etosha National Park as well as the Caprivi Strip. This is an essential guide for photographers, nature enthusiasts and travel junkies to begin their exploration into the vast and beautiful expanses of Botswana and Namibia.
