As a person who leads Safari photo workshops, I shoot safari photos with both Nikon & Canon gear, as a result I am neither a Canon shooter or a Nikon shooter, plus it would be pretty tough supporting and teaching a camera system that you do not understand or work with.



This is a listing of what is in my bag during Africa photographic travel, but is by no means a recommendation as each wildlife and landscape photographer has different needs.
