Safari lens(es)
Jun 30, 2010

Hi, There is alot of questions about what lens(es) you have to have when you go on safari. If you want to be reasonable flexible I recommend to NOT bring i.e a 200-400mm it's to heavy if you are in a jeep. Maybe its ok when you sit in a hide or so. My suggestion is a Nikon 14-24mm and a 70-200m VR sometimes with a TC 1,7 or TC2.0. As everything happens very, very fast with animals, try to bring two bodies as you don´t have time to switch lenses. Sometimes the action in just in front of or beside the jeep, next time "far away".

Some samples from my trips to Africa.
