Zulu Nyala, South Africa


We went to South Africa for a safari at Zulu Nyala in September, 2006. We had a great time, saw lots of animals, and had some fun adventures. We recommend that you read the travelogue starting at Day 1 and then browse through the individual animal pictures.

Note: Under construction... The travelogue is complete, but we plan to post more animal photos.


Update history:


We used the following camera equipment during our safari:

  • Tom:
    • Canon EOS 5D digital camera body
    • 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lens
    • 24-105mm f/4 lens
    • 50mm f/1.4 lens
  • Cathy:
    • Canon EOS 30D digital camera body
    • 75-300mm f/4-5.6 lens
    • 17-85mm f/4-5.6 lens
    • 28mm f/1.8 lens

We shared lenses a bit, but typically each used our own longest telephoto lens. Tom's camera has a full-frame CCD, but Cathy's camera has a CCD that's smaller than the film area of a typical SLR (as is typical for consumer-level digital SLR camera bodies). Because of this, Cathy's camera has the effect of multiplying focal length by 1.6. This means that photos taken with a 300mm lens on Cathy's camera are equivalent to a film camera using a 480mm lens.
