In a few weeks, my wife and I will be leaving for a trip to the African continent. A highlight of the trip will be a week long stay at a game lodge, where we'll be taken on twice daily excursions to nearby game preserves to photograph wildlife. Because we'll be doing a good bit of touring besides the stay at the game lodge, I'm trying to strike a balance between traveling light and having all the essential gear I'll need. Here's a list of the basic gear I own: FX Stuff Nikon D700 camera back AF Nikkor 24-70 F2 AF Nikkor 70-200 F2 VRII AF Nikkor 50mm 1.8 DX Stuff Nikon D90 camera back Tokina AF ATX 12-24/4.0 Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6G Misc Stuff Nikon SB 600 strobe Full size heavy duty Manfrotto tripod Manfrotto monopod I obviously can't bring all of this stuff with me. Also, is there any essential gear that I'm missing? Any suggestions from anyone who's been there and done that?
