At dawn breakfast is served around the campfire. The porridge heated on the fire and toast cooked by the coals. You will often get up before dawn so you're in the park in time for the fantastic dawn light - luckily the camp has direct access to the park so it often takes only a few swift minutes. You'll maximise your time in the park finding many subjects to photograph from the very small to the very big. After enjoying a delicious lunch, you can choose to relax during siesta or sort through your photographs and come to grips with Adobe Lightroom. After a refreshing cup of tea or coffee and scrumptious cake you go back to the park to find even more in the afternoon and evening, returning to camp for dinner around 20h30. Most evenings there will be a slideshow where you will get an illustration of some of the points taught or highlighted throughout the day, and you'll also have a chance to show off your best shots.

Following a relaxed breakfast you will walk out of camp and head towards Nsefu Camp, stopping for tea and cake along the way and arriving in time for lunch. The camp is on a sweeping bend of the river. Nsefu was the first game camp in Zambia and dates back to the early fifties. The Nsefu Sector was recognised then as a phenomenal area and it still is. There are six rondavels with luxurious en-suite facilities and each room has a clear view of the river through large windows and from the new wooden verandahs. On arrival you will be shown to your rondavel and then lunch will be served followed by a well-deserved siesta before the afternoon and evening game drive.

Your Guide: Who is David Rogers?

David has been photographing wild places in Africa for more than 20 years.
