A photographer from Khayelitsha receives a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to document a wild environment.

The Okavango Delta is a life source. Home to countless plant species, it also provides vital water to Botswana’s wildlife. For Teddy Sambu, it’s a long way from Khayelitsha.

The young photographer finds himself here after receiving a life-changing opportunity to hone his craft under the mentorship of Damon Hyland, a respected photographer. Funded by the Imara Light Warriors, a project run by Imara Holdings, the trip is the opportunity of a lifetime for Sambu, who earned his break after Hyland recognised his skill for composition.

Sambu’s exuberant energy is expressed in his photography. His images are full of detail and depth. His eagerness to learn, coupled with his passion for his craft, has opened a world that he could only imagine.

The Okavango Delta is more than his muse. It is a place of self-discovery.
