Best Gear Insurance for Safari?

Forum,

I’m going to Africa on a photo safari next week. I read that even in good hotels, valuables can disappear sometimes. What’s the best insurance to take out? (I’m U.S. based.)

  1. Will a renters’ insurance do? (I.e. I’d take out renters’ insurance for my belongings in my apartment, and list my photo gear.) Will that work for international travel? or
  2. Will generic travel insurance do the trick? or
  3. Do I need to take out some photo gear specific insurance?

Obviously, the more affordable the solution, the better. At the same time, I have a lot of valuable gear to protect on such a trip.

As always, Your insights are much appreciated! You guys make this forum the best!
