Re: Binoculars for S. Africa


I have been on many safaris. My current binoculars are Swarovski 8x30 CL Companions, and I am very pleased with them. They are optically excellent, and light enough to use all day without tiring.

My wife had a pair of the Canon 10x42 IS binoculars. At first she was happy with them, but they were stolen and she bought a second pair - and could never get along with them. No idea why.

In the end she tried my Swarovski's - and now she has a pair too!

Incidentally, to the guy who is planning an African trip, my strong recommendation is to sign up to

It's full of very experienced travellers, they are friendly (we safari nuts are!) and very happy to offer ideas or help in planning the trip.
