Savuti - Chobe National Park in Botswana

Fliming with drone in the Savuti BotswanaAt the perfect time of the year for it, we found ourselves heading off to do some drone filming in the Savuti area of Chobe National Park in Botswana.

Most of the area is arid or desert, but at a certain time of the year the Okavango river floods into the vast plains, instantly turning everything it touches green. Being there at the right time allowed us to capture aerials of the area both dry and while it turns green as the floods enter.

"I just love these aerials, everything is just stunning!"
-- Julie King (associate producer)

The Savuti marshland is home to infamous elephant-hunting lions, as well as hoards of buffalo and a resourceful leopardess.

We captured breathtaking aerial scenes of the marsh, mountains and plains with a Canon 5D on our octocopter drone.
