Photographic Safari created to put you in the best locations at the best times of the day for photography.

Generally, when packing lenses, a wide-angle, telephoto, and super-telephoto (minimum 400mm) will be sufficient. A 1.4x or 2x teleconverter is an option you may want to consider. If you do not own a super-telephoto lens, consider renting one. You will want a super-telephoto. If you do not have one, you will regret it. In Africa, I shoot more than 90% of my images with a 400mm with and without a 1.4 extender. Most of clients use my 70-200mm and 16-35mm but, if I had to take only one lens, it would be the 400mm. This is more important if you are visiting Eastern Africa, where vehicles are usually required to stay on the road— often at a distance from your subjects. You might get away with a 200mm or 300mm lens, because the vehicles may be able to get closer to the action, Canon EOS 5D Mark III; EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens; manual exposure, 1/1000 sec at f/5.6; ISO 250; 0 EV
