Botswana Safari Photos - July/Aug 2007

Jump to last reply

My husband and I were in Botswana for a safari between July 28 and August 6 after spending one night in Victoria Falls. We stayed three nights each at three Wilderness Safaris camps - DumaTau, Chitabe and Kwetsani. It was simply awesome - everything we expected and more. We had never had such a great time on vacation and we are both ready to go back!

I have been spending a lot of time editing my photos, and I think I am finally done. I took two cameras - a Canon 20D with a 70-300mm IS lens and a Canon Rebel with a 300mm f/4L IS lens plus the 1.4 extender. I had thought about getting the 100-400mm L but I already had the 70-300 which I was (and still am) very happy with. I got the 300 for the reach. I handheld the 70-300 most of the time and used either a beanbag or a monopod to steady the 300mm. Nothing works all that well in a game vehicle because there is always someone moving.

Here is the link to my photos: http://www.pbase.com/sharons/botswana

Here is a link to some video clips my husband did: http://stage6.divx.com/user/VideoITGuy

I am not going to do a trip report at this time but there is a lot of comentary with the photos. I'll be glad to answer any questions.

Sharon
