If you are doing a photo-tour with any half-decent safari outfitter, they should supply virtually everything apart from the camera, lenses and memory cards.

If you are doing your own thing, then I would agree with a bean bag for car window shots and a monopod for walking shots. Do be careful when walking near wildlife though, unless you are with a guide armed with a 30-06.

Phase One ( PODAS ) Provide Camera / Lenses etc for loan on their workshops / holidays, but I guess the price of $4,000 for a week reflects that Wink
