-What is the suggested equipment for this tour?
For wild animals a mid telephoto lens in the range of 100-400 works best. For birds however you require a longer focal length lenses but a minimum requirement is 100-400 lens. However prime lenses with higher focal lengths like 500mm or 600mm work the best, but we never advise anyone to go for those lenses just for coming on this tour. Camera bodies which work better in low light conditions and which have a crop sensor and high fps are suggested. We always advise to carry a monopod and a bean bag to stabilize your camera to get tack sharp pics. The tracks can be very dusty which can harm your camera, so we strongly suggest a dust bag to keep your gear protected when not in use.
