Africa Trek Gear
May 22, 2011

Looking for suggestions and experience on gear for an African trip. We'll be traveling from Cape Town up the coast through Namibia and back. Wildlife, scenic landscapes, and people in villages along the way are my targets.

Great trip - but - we are doing this by MOTORCYCLE. So I need to be small, light and packable. Don't want to destroy anything in the environment. I don't want to have the camera so buried away that when an opportunity arises I can't get to it.

My available gear:

7D, 70-200/2.8, 50/1.4, 17-55/2.8, 10-22, 100-400, 1.4x tele. I also have an S95 tethered to my riding coat

It would be great to hear from some "been there done that" folks.
