Safari Camera Kit in a Case + Binoculars

Safari Camera Kit in a Case + Binoculars

Challenge: “All inclusive Safari Camera Needs in a Kit” like “Bed in a Bag”

What would your “Safari Camera Kit” look like to TOTALLY EQUIP your Mom, Dad, Best Guy, Gal or friend?

The “What to Pack List” and “Trip Reports” lists have “set the example” for helpfulness and I think it would be extremely beneficial to see an all inclusive itemized, and consolidated shop-able list for each particular camera recommendation.

I have a tremendous amount of respect and gratitude for the amount of time folks have spent sharing their expertise as I have read the many threads on this forum regarding safari camera recommendations and preferences…but personally I am still having a difficult time wrapping my brain around all the pre-purchase education and formulating exactly what I need to purchase.

Along with a slew of other folks, I am about to embark on my first trip to Africa and I would like to purchase a digital camera with the all the needed accessories to document my experiences with the highest quality photographs possible for the novice photographer.

Realizing decisions come down to affordability and personal preferences with pros and cons, I have gleaned that each traveler has basic camera needs for the varied African topography (low light for gorillas and zoom minimum for the plains etc.) including adapters, stabilizers, photo and actual camera storage options all with the possibility of upgrades and weight issues.

At this point I have 20 days until I leave and would love to get started practicing and feel my brain can rally around the technology if it is in my hand. I also feel I cannot make a financial error even as I discover my own preferences and find I have picked the “wrong kit” as everything is re-sellable these days! I do a lot of computer graphic work and have enjoyed working with many beautiful high resolution photographs from others. I would also like to take videos that I could upload to my computer and play with by adding music etc.

Do any of the photo experts think this is a worthwhile idea to get together and decide on a basic LIST format that would be for the good of the group regardless of the camera recommendation?

Extra lens if needed for that camera:
