The moon in the Ximungwe female would be a top picture… they are all superb, describing life variety and colours

Yes, indeed a pair of binoculars is something one should never forget to pack or take on the car. Luckily, nice Londolozi provides you with such a pair!

Hi Matt, I agree wholeheartedly with you about the binoculars. It gives you so much more detail and the colours are also so much better. Many a time you don’t even see a leopard in a tree, but if you quickly scan with the binoculars, you will see them lying in a tree unnoticed by people riding past. I even use my binoculars to look for the owls here in my yard or to look further away in the trees. It definitely is a huge asset to have on safari.

Getting high-powered binoculars was one of the best investments we’ve made for our safaris!

Such a lovely blog Matt, and so true – thank you

What a beautifully written blog Matt. You are correct about the value of carrying binoculars whilst out in nature, and although I have a great pair, I find that I can’t justify the weight when traveling to Africa, due to camera and lens weight. Maybe next time I’ll leave my extra pair of shoes at home….😎. That could work!!

That Ximungwe female photo is stunning! I forgot to mention that. It’s all in the details.

I cannot even imagine going on safari without bin0s! You would miss SO much interesting detail! Plus it is fun to spot things that others in your party cannot see!

Indeed a pair of binoculars can help us perceive many details of scenery, plants, insects and wild animals in the distance, especially for those who is nearsighted.
