Greg Nelson, Expedition Leader

The ‘Okavango Through the Lens’ expedition unlocks the Okavango Delta from three perspectives – exploring bush, desert and water environments. Telling the remarkable story of the Delta, the expedition takes a deep dive into the origins of the Okavango, how it functions and the pressures it faces in an uncertain future.

Each day the group can learn new camera and film skills whilst on safari, with Nelson assisting each client individually to create a book, photo essay or documentary film of their adventure.

Insider access to the most unforgettable and thought-provoking local experiences have been curated exclusively by Arcadia for their guests. Throughout the expedition, a number of resident experts will join the group’s ‘travelling dinner party’ for evening meals in camp. Around the table and by the fire, clients will hear first-hand accounts of the fieldwork undertaken by these experts to further enrich their understanding of the Okavango.

Arcadia Expeditions Co-Founder, David Adams, says this one-of-a-kind trip is the ultimate indulgence for those looking for a luxury safari with a difference.

“Our expedition travels to off-the-beaten-track locations in the Delta, often by private aircraft, staying in exclusive luxury mobile camps in the style of the old explorers. We camp on the edge of the Kalahari, on remote islands and in wildlife-rich game reserves. With Greg on hand to help our clients record their journey, it’s a wonderful opportunity for people to enhance their camera and video skills with one of the world’s best.”

Departing on 14 August 2022, the itinerary is limited to just 12 people and is priced at AU$20,365 per person.

The expedition is also available for private departures with a flexible range of dates next year.
