Most people don’t think about this, but wide angle lenses really do deserve a spot in your African safari camera bag.Nikonians.org just posted my new article in The Nikonian eZine issue 56 on using wide angle lenses on safari.
Long lenses like the Nikon 200-400mm f/4, 400mm f/2.8 or the 600mm f/4 always get the big billing, but I contend that it is just important to bring along a super-wide to round out your kit. In the article I suggest a number of ideas for using these lenses and offer specific recommendations for the Nikon 14-24mm or the Nikon 16-35mm.

Most of the shots in the article were taken during our two 2013 safaris. Our next trip to Tanzania is set for November 4-15, 2014.
