Since 2009 CNP Safaris differentiated itself from all competitors by introducing the world’s first custom-built Photographic Chairs that offer aircraft seating comfort while being able to swivel seamlessly in an arc of 360 degrees.
We started out by mounting the chairs on our custom-built flat bottom boats that operate on the Chobe River in northern Botswana.
Photographing from the water not only offered a dust free environment but also provided eye-level perspectives to capture animal and bird behaviour in a way that cannot be achieved on land. Added to this is the ability to manage effectively the wonderful nuances of African light by constantly maneouvering the boats in away that is rarely possible on land.
Thus we found that on the Chobe River we were able to take photographs that previously had only been the stuff that dreams are made of.
It is small wonder then that so many international photographic awards have been garnered by both our clients and us.
