A few tips on what equipment to bring

  • Lenses: For close-up photography, use macro or extension tubes. Always use a tripod with these lenses. Wide-angle lenses (18 mm – 50 mm) are best for stunning landscapes. 
  • Camera bag: Be sure to adequately protect your camera and equipment by taking it as hand luggage on the plane. 
  • Batteries: Always travel with spare batteries and take advantage of the opportunity to recharge at communal charging stations in all bush camps. 
  • Cleaning: Pack a bellows, brush, and cloth to remove dust and take the best care of your equipment. 
  • Tripod: A good tripod can be unwieldy when travelling. Consider taking a lightweight monopod for stability during your shoots. 
  • Filters: Polarising filters increase colour contrast saturation, eliminate reflections, and darken the sky (although they can absorb some light). Manual focus cameras use a linear polariser. 

        Capture the spirit of Zambia’s diverse and vibrant wildlife with every click of the shutter and let the photo safari burn unforgettable memories of this incredible African experience into your lens and heart.
