    The last 19 days I've spent in South Africa and Swaziland. Photography was challenging, esp. when sitting in a vehicle with jumpy kids. But everybody had fun, and I still managed to take some pictures of the different aspects of the tour.

    Thanks! We're currently in the selecting process. I can't do all culling immediately after a trip, I need some time to say goodbye to some of my darlings. But my fingers got itchy, so I did work on these four as an appetizer. More will come later, when there's more time for editing.

    wonderful shots, sounds like an amzing trip. btw, camera/lens info definitely adds to the enjoyment, at least for me.

    exif should be included, at least on Flickr. I used the following cameras on this trip: OMD E-M5 (2 bodies) with 12, 17, 25, 45, 75-300 II lenses and a RX100. I also brought a 12-50 zoom, but didn't use it for a single shot. In that range, I just prefer using two bodies with primes attached. My wife used an older Canon travelzoom P&S.
