Just wanted to get some feedback from people that have done game drives etc. I've done a lot of travelling in remote areas so this isn't my first rodeo, any tips that are specific to game drives etc. would be helpful.

Heading to Namibia in July. Planning to take my Canon T3i, as it is lighter than my 7D. Not sure of the lens yet, will probably only take one due to weight concerns

I am just the opposite, packing probably 4 lenses, 2 bodies and a tripod.

Hi,

35L/1.4 II - 135L/2.8 and 400/4.0 DOII and a lightweight tripod (Gitzo traveler series) served me very well in Tanzania last year.

Have fun,

Rene.
