          Questions & AnswersAsk a question
          Photographers...relating specifically to the Porini camps (and game drives)...how close were you to the animals on game drives? Did you bring 200mm, 300mm, 400mm, 600mm lenses? I have little interest in birds and just trying to figure out how long a lens to bring, everyone says "as long as possible" but renting a 70-200 2.8 is MUCH more affordable than a 200-400 F4 and much much lighter...

          Can someone please help us make our decision... We are going next July to Gamewatchers Selenkay Adventure Camp, Porini Rhino Camp and Ol Kinyei Adventure Camp. Our dilema is we don't know whether to book through Gamewatchers directly, and be subject to a very quickly dropping Australian dollar, or book through our Australian Travel agency. I want to support the work of the Porini conservancies and would hope that they get their fare share of the price I would pay my local travel agent, but without having to worry about the dollar dropping more over the next 6-8 months before my final payment is made. Has anyone else booked through a private travel agent as opposed to directly through Gamewatchers???
