An African safari is an obvious dream choice for a photographer. Those priceless wildlife moments and the breath-taking scenery framed by rich sunsets lure them in with a creative hunger like no other. But first they must get there, and in doing so they bring equipment…lots of equipment! Here we offer a solution for professionals and an opportunity for the novice.
It’s fair to assume that baggage is every travelling photographer’s bug bear. Different lenses, camera bodies, support systems, lighting accessories and not mention those all-important super binoculars all must find a space in the suitcase. For professionals it’s a drag and for budding photographers, or those simply wanting to ‘give it a try’, it can all seem like a bit of a mission.
At Garonga we put the cherry on top of the photographer’s dream cake by launching a new photography rentals partnership with Africa Photographic Services which means you can now enjoy the convenience of renting your equipment Africa-side and even have the pleasure of it being delivered to your accommodation ready for your arrival. Luxury safari indeed!
In case you needed more persuading, here are some top reasons you should choose to hire rather than lug!
Save money and try before you buy
Many of our guests see their Garonga safari as an opportunity to dabble in the art of photography. But there’s no point spending large sums of money on fancy equipment which might only see the light of day once per year so save the cash and put it towards your next trip instead. Hiring equipment gives you the chance to try before you buy. See how you get on with a professional range before splashing out.
Last minute planners
Some people have their whole trip planned months, or years, in advance but we know there are many people that leave some things to the last minute. This is also where we can step in and help you out by organising your equipment at short notice. Especially if you do pack your equipment and then realise while on the flight that you have forgotten that all important lens.
Not only will you NOT have to carry heavy and awkwardly shaped equipment across the globe with you, but you even have the choice of collecting/dropping off at the airport or it being delivered ready for you in your accommodation. Additionally, you have the ease of our online shop to make your booking and we are there for any advice you might need about the kind of equipment you should go for based on your level of ability.
Weather you are a photographer in the making, an experienced hand or even if once you get here you just fancy a go…we can assist you to make sure you get the most out of your African adventure without the headache…not to mention backache!
