15 things you need to know before photographing your first African safari
Last April I ventured to South Africa for a weeklong safari in Kruger National Park to photograph wildlife. I chose Kruger for its variety of wildlife and good reviews of wildlife sightings even though I was visiting during the tail end of the wet season. The park is over 100 years old and has seen a lot of logistical and infrastructure improvements over the last 10 years. It is best to fly into Johannesburg, South Africa, just a few hours from Kruger and rent camera gear from there to start your safari.
