It is well known that the Great Plains Conservation camps in Botswana are located in some of the best wildlife viewing destinations available to guests. The African plains and savannahs roll out like a new adventure story every day. The animals all players on a stage. The sheer scale, size and views of Africa very often only become apparent once you actually arrive. It is also only then that you realise that the camera equipment you have brought on safari, may simply not allow you to realise that image you wish you were able to capture!

The cost and logistics of bringing the larger lenses and camera bodies with you on international flights and small air transfers, are also not conducive to the effort very often either…

Those Days Are Over.

We have sourced some of the best photographic rental equipment available form Africa Photographic services and we are proud to offer all our guests the opportunity now of pre-reserving a wide range of camera bodies, lenses and equipment that you can take with you when you come on safari with us to Botswana. We will ensure the equipment you want is delivered to you at Johannesburg International Airport before you depart for Botswana by a Africa Photographic Services representative and when you return, they will collect the equipment from you. All you take with you are great memories and your images on your memory cards supplied with every camera body hired.

Simple. Easy. Affordable.

When it comes to ordering your equipment in Johannesburg, you will be able to choose between Canon or Nikon specialist camera equipment. A suggested kit would be:

Camera: Canon EOS 7D
Lens: Canon 100-400 F4.5-5.6 L IS

Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: 28-300 F3.5-5.6 VR

You can also customise the equipment you would prefer to take with you from camera bodies, to lenses, to supporting equipment – even GoPro’s are available to hire! Have your favourite camera body but want to look at taking other equipment and lens out whilst on safari? Choose how you would like to customize your existing equipment, from lens, to camera bodies, to supporting equipment such as tripods and even GoPro’s which are available to hire!

A full range of equipment and gear is also available prior to the start of your Botswana safari. At this stage, this offering is not available in our Kenyan camps. All equipment comes pre-packed in a hard shell Pelican case and all rates include daily insurance.

Whether you need back up equipment for your kit, or want to try something different, or simply test equipment that you may be considering buying, renting any piece of our range of camera equipment will ensure that you will have the best and perfect setup for any shoot or situation.
