Essentials 9: Travel Light


Going on fly-in photographic safaris, team building photographic safaris and wildlife photography courses makes one thing much easier, travelling light. The safari flights have a baggage allowance of 15 kg for the entire baggage including hand luggage and photo equipment. This might cause immediately a shock to the owners of beautiful fixed 400mm and 500mm lenses, but it actually helps making your live easier.

Travelling with too much photo gear can limit you in your flexibility and not only on game drives. When you walk through Paris, you don’t want to carry lots of equipment with you. You would be too exhausted to focus on the actual photography.

Travel light, only take what you really need. Free yourself.

Happy travelling!
