Safari tips you can trust
Not taking binoculars -
or taking the wrong ones
Binoculars are essential
Safari wildlife seldom comes as close as you would like.
Bring your own
Don't rely on the tour operator's brochure phrase "binoculars provided". Otherwise, you may have to share the promised binoculars with other tour members.
Even if you don't have to share the binoculars, they could be defective due to repeated misuse by hundreds of safari-goers before you.
Under 8 power is too weak for safari-viewing purposes. For most people, over 10 power produces image shake.
Field of vision
It specifies how much you can view through your binoculars from left to right and top to bottom. The bigger the field of vision, the greater the area your binoculars will capture.
