Delta Delight

Hannes Lochner is a multi-award-winning professional wildlife photographer. The 'spirit of Africa' has always fascinated him – especially the Kalahari. He lived there for five years so he could gain an extensive knowledge of the region.

His ability to tell a story through photos is truly extraordinary. He is a master when it comes to assessing the ideal light conditions in order to take the perfect photo – capturing the essence of wildlife and landscapes.

Hannes has many accolades, including the coveted BBC’s Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year award. Many of his photos and articles have been published in well-known international and local publications.

This gallery showcases a selection of awe-inspiring photos from his book, Planet Okavango – an evocative tribute to the wetland deltas of Botswana, its inhabitants, and its unique wonder.
