Upcoming trip to Africa and Dubai
Penny and I leave for Johannesburg in Mid August for a two week trip which will encompass safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana. We'll be bring my new Canon Rebel SL2 (2000D), an iPhone X and iPhone 8 and a couple of GoPros. The Canon has a Sigma 80-300 mm lens. Video is in 1080 as the 4K models are out of our price range. The iPhone will do 4K at 60 FPS. We've signed up for one hot air balloon ride. Because of weight limitations in small aircraft we're limited in luggage. I'm bringing a monopod. I've never photographed wild animals and I'm really looking forward to the trip. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

We'll wrap up the trip with three days in Dubai where I'll be snowboarding at the indoor ski area and scuba diving with sharks in the aquarium at the Dubai Mall.

Sounds terrific, Pat.
You and your wife are going to have a great time, I'm sure.

Where about in Zimbabwe are you going ? Nowhere near Zambia - South Luangwa National Park ( which is in Zimbabwe ) ? Only asked, as I watch the wild life there daily.

Hi Garry,

As well as I can remember, the itinerary will include Victoria Falls River Lodge, Elephant Valley Lodge in Botswana, Chobe National Park, Kasane/Okavango Delta, and Kadizora Camp.

The tour operator encourages us to submit wildlife photos. The winning entry gets a new Apple watch! I already have one but it would be nice to get one for Penny.
