Camera for Safari Trip
The safari offers the opportunity to literally take thousands of photos. The most successful armature photographer in our group had a Canon 60SX (newer version is 70SX) “bridge camera” which was quite compact and had a range of 1,365 feet. She got amazing photos that those of us with higher end DSLR cameras couldn’t match, because some of the best subjects (lions) were too far away for a 400 mm lens. The Canon is available for $400 - $500, and similar Nikon models (P900 and P1000) that have a range of 2,000 & 3,000 feet are available for less than $1,000. Leave your DSLR at home and get a good long range bridge camera and you will have the best photos of your group.
