Choose the best equipment’s/ cameras

Cameras may be a little bit expensive together with all the coasts you will incur on the safari, however if you choose wisely and spend once on a gadget that will give you the best for a long time it can be less cheap in the long run. You will need a camera that will give you the best shot in the longest space possible; here you will need most probably a zoom less around 400mm and a lens for wide landscape shots. To avoid changing lenses you can carry two cameras with each a lens to avoid the time you spend on changing them.
