While getting ready for a safari trip (about which I will write much more in coming weeks, I hope), I am confronted by an extremely strict weight limit: 26 pounds! This must include checked baggage and carry-on, toothbrush, clothing and camera :(
Winnowing down my choices has been extremely difficult. What's more valuable for a safari? A wide angle to get the most from the landscape, or a flash for indoor shots of family post game ride? What do I need more, another book, or a back-up battery?
This has not been easy, but the alternative, which is to have items summarily confiscated, is worse :(
Has anyone else traveled with these extreme (or so they seem) weight limits? How have you handled the restrictions?
