It is advisable to change the camera reels when the vehicle is stationary to prevent dust from soiling them.

It is important to ask before taking a photoIf you want to photograph people from the country, you should ask first as in some places it is not very well seen and can be a problem.

In certain tribes you will have to agree a price with the chief of the village to be able to take pictures.

Turn off all camera sounds. Avoid disturbing the animals at all times.
