Re: Safari and camera bags

I went to Tanzania Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Manyara and Tarangire in september 2016 (albums are displayed on my flickr gallery).

My son and I we used a Kalahari Kapako photo shoulder bag:

This bag proved very convenient to carry all my travel gear,: my APSC-DSLR (Pentax K3) with two zooms (18-135 and 55-300), + a small 35mm standard prime (now replaced in my travel kit by a 40mm pancake prime and a 15mm f4 limited UWA) and a high end compact FujiX10 (now replaced by GM5+12-32).

It has many very convenient zipped pouches in which I carried my passport, money, spectacles, credit cards, smartphone, spare batteries and memory cards, a small bottle of water a.s.o., so that I didnt not have to bother about a money bag.

Having only one bag for all personal go with me all day round belongings is very convenient.

Photographic gear is well protected against dust, shocks and bumps, and there is a folding raincover against rainshowers. It is also very unobtrusive, as it is made of rugged cotton fabric and looks more like a hiking bag, which doesnt catch too much attention.

I think the size should be OK for a set of high end M43 body and zooms.
