To photograph game we advise you use a telephoto lens of 200-300 mm. Never leave film or camera in a locked truck. The rapidly advancing temperature can harm the quality of photographic material in no time.
Not all kinds of batteries for cameras are available, so make sure you take enough for the whole journey. The use of a (small) video camera should not be a problem. At most places we stay you will be able to charge the battery. You do need a universal plug. Remember that during camping safari’s you may not be able to charge your camera for a few days.
The local population generally does not like being photographed. Always ask permission and respect it if people refuse. Practice restraint when taking pictures of the national flag, police officers, government buildings, airports and soldiers.
