  Safari photography
What kind of camera do you need?
Most safari-goers bring some kind of camera for their safari, varying from disposable cameras to modern digital single lens reflex cameras with huge tele lenses. Some visitors take a few pictures only, while others take thousands.
We recommend that you bring a camera that you know how to use, and that corresponds to your interest in photography. That is, if you own a camera and are happy with it, don't get yourself a new one.
But if you have been thinking of getting a new one, this may be a good time.
If you usually don't bring a camera on holidays, you don't have to bring one just because you're going on a safari. If you want some nice pictures, you may buy a nice book to bring home.
Regardless of what kind of camera you bring, you will get many good picture opportunities on your tour to East Africa. This page shows amateur pictures from Zanzibar, shot using a small 3X digital camera.

Taking pictures of people
Avoid taking pictures of people without first asking for their permission, or you may cause offence. Many Maasai will ask you to pay for taking pictures.
