The Delta in focus

Taking wildlife photographs requires technical skill, practice and patience. In this stunning portfolio of images, Hannes Lochner shares his tips on how to capture the animals of the Okavango Delta on camera

During more than five years in the Kalahari Desert, I developed a craving for water, and lots of it; and elephants, and lots of them. We wanted to explore a totally different environment and spend enough time to get to know it intimately, especially its wildlife and individual animals which we could follow to study their quaint habits and characteristic behaviour under different conditions. What better location for this than the Okavango Delta? There we could capture the animals on film, in a waterlogged environment, studying the effects on them of both an abundance of water and a lack of it, looking particularly at seasonal and unseasonal changes in the circle of life in this large ecosystem.

We fell in love with a unique part of the African continent and were sad to leave. I believe that if you live an ordinary life, you will tell ordinary stories.
