Botswana: A Picture-Perfect Photography Adventure
by Kenton Krueger
What exactly does a Botswana Safari with Backcountry Journeys look like?
 

In our minds, it’s a picture-perfect photography adventure! One, that by trip’s end will be filled to the brim with memories to last a lifetime, and, more photographs to help tell your story than you’d ever want to sift through.


Botswana is a place unlike any other on earth. Really, it’s a dream-world for adventurers and photographers, alike. It is her on the vast plains and river deltas where lion, leopard, zebra, giraffe, and vast herds of African elephant still roam wild and free. For wildlife photographers who’ve yet to explore the continent of Africa, Botswana is the prize location on the continent.

“You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions.”

-Isak Dinesen, Out of Africa


The biodiversity of wildlife in Botswana is incredible, with an overwhelming array of mammal and bird species that help to give the African continent it’s identity. Ever heard the term ‘Big Five?’ They await you and your camera (read more about the Big Five, here).
 

Any trip to Africa is indeed a great journey, and when folks think of a ‘safari,’ scenes of megafauna running through their natural habitat of vast plains alongside vehicles full of people, some photographing with big lenses, and others simply “oohing and ahhing,” quickly come to mind.


Perhaps the time is now for you to not just dream about Botswana, but to see it for yourself. To go from the depths of your imagination and preconceived notions to the reality of an Africa Safari experience is something profound. What is it like to be immersed in the wilds of Mashatu or Chobe National Park? The smells, the sounds – the animals. Find out!

















Kenton Krueger has spent the past several years guiding backpackers, hikers, and photographers into the wild places of the American West such as Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Olympic, Glacier, Katmai, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands National Parks, Coastal Oregon, as well as internationally in Costa Rica & Brazil. In addition to backpacking and camping, his adventures include rock climbing, exploring the slot canyons of southern Utah, mountain biking, and bagging 14ers in Colorado’s San Juan Mountain Mountain Range. Kenton is a trail runner, and former pilot, and spent roughly five years writing and photographing for the award-winning Omaha World-Herald newspaper, out of his hometown, Omaha, Nebraska. Kenton looks forward to utilizing his years of trip leading and guiding experience, combined with his passion and experience behind the lens, to provide memorable and unforgettable experiences at the wild places we will visit together.

  • A Great Experience!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
