EQUIPMENT LIST

As our photographic expeditions fit either to professionals, beginners or enthusiasts, it’s hard to provide or recommend an equipment list at this point. The best to do is to bring the right camera gear for you knowing how to use it. As our destinations provide great possibilities for nature & wildlife photography, note some useful hints below:

CAMERA: Either for a DSLR or a compact digital camera, take along a spare one; it’s preferred to get a camera which accepts a variety of lenses;

LENSES: basically two are recommended – a wide angle zoom (28mm to 70mm or 105mm) and a telephoto zoom (70mm to 300mm).

ACCESSORIES: a good quality camera bag or case, a polarizer filter, a light tripod (but heavy enough to stabilize your camera), plenty batteries and a charger, memory cards.

Remember this is just simple basic information to put up an idea of photo equipment to bring up on our trips.

Remember when packing

Most types of transportation have a luggage limit weight per person. Check out details about it according to your trip and itineraries.  As lighter you pack more enjoyable your trip gets, and helps to avoid problems with luggage’s excess of weight. In any case, traveling light is always better.
