My last trip to Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe in 2013 we weren't very connected after leaving Johannesburg. Victoria Falls was OK but in the bush...nah.

Places differ though so who knows. And besides we're four years down the road.

Actually, pictures are really the best but it's nice to hear what was going on each day. I realize doing it on the trip is difficult and wouldn't expect anybody to do that. But maybe when you post pictures on your return you can recall some details. Just a thought.

Currently rolling up lenses, batteries and bodies in Boxers, socks and T-Shirts to stuff into carry on.
500mm is strapped down to the rails of my rolling Samsonite,. ;)

Checked bag has a tripod, chargers and the 500mm's lens bag for when we get there so far.

Now where am I going to put my other stuff?


What stuff?!!! You have everything you will ever need on your trip :lol:

Safe travels. Waiting to see all the photographs (or at least a few) from the trip!


CC always welcome.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I imagine that things might be a bit more connected, but truly I have no idea....

14 days in camps/tents. Usually no power, never wifi or cell signal. this was FAR more off the grid then last time!

What a trip!

I'd like to post images this weekend, but sadly I am forced to go out of town tomorrow,. :(

I used the following

5D4, 7D2 and 1D4 as back up.

EF 500mm f/4L IS II, packed both T-Cons, never used the 2X this time.
But unlike with the 1st gen IS lens, I did essentially leave the 1.4X on all the time for 700mm, and this was always mounted to 5D4.

Which is nearly the same effective field of view I used for a decade with 1.3X 1D bodies on the older 500mm IS v1. Apparently this is my preferred FOV. Anything longer and I can't track a moving subject well. I used 1.4x often enough on the old combo, but it was never "default" only grabbed the T-Con when needed. Going down to REAL 500mm FOV on the 5D4, and with the better performance of the new lens designs, the 1.4x became the default.

The 7D2 was almost welded to the 100-400mm MkII

The only other lenses I used were the 18-135mm STM on 7D2, and the 16-35mm f/4L IS on occasion on the 5D4.

Liz was shooting with a 60D with the SIGMA 100-400mm C on it, and that was a very nice combo. We traded the 18-135mm back and forth a few times.

We also packed the tine 24mm pancake and 50 1.8 STM for around the campfire shooting, but I don't think we ever mounted either.

Pretty sure Jake never really went to Africa and just threw us a few pics he took at the zoo.

More pictures of it didn't happen!
