Binoculars home

  • The new kid on the block in the world of optics, Vortex Optics, offer affordable, high performance optics with an Unlimited Lifetime Warranty. Yes you read correctly: unlimited lifetime warranty! This fact alone makes these binoculars a no-brainer when you select the best affordable optics to purchase for your safari or travels!

  • Swarovski Optik are at the pinnacle of the optical world. They are the safari binoculars and will enhance the light to such an extent that you will see more through your Swarovski's than with the naked eye!

  • The cost of purchasing one pair of binoculars per person can be prohibitive, and this is why renting high quality, well maintained Bushnell binoculars from us makes such good sense.

  • Using our safari guiding experience, we have selected a small range of Bushnell binoculars which are ideal for your safari. For high quality optical performance, at affodable prices, look no further.

  • Ever since we saw these photo trap cameras on the BBC series 'Lost Land of the Tiger' we knew that we simply had to add these to our range. We have always wanted to know which animals were active in camp during the day and at night and this is such a fun way to find out!


Binoculars are the most important safari essential!

A pair of good quality binoculars are vitally important to the success of your safari. Not only do they bring distant wildlife closer to you, but they also allow you to appreciate and study animals which are in the foreground in intimate detail. We therefore rate binoculars, without hesitation, as the number 1 safari essential and advise all of our clients to take at least one pair per couple. The ideal is really one pair of binoculars per person so that you, your partner and your family (if going on a family safari) are able to appreciate the wildlife interaction you are viewing (hunting and so forth) at the same time. If you intend not to take binoculars, and borrow from your safari guide, please note that this is not ideal. Not only will you be hindering your experience on safari and miss out on a great deal of the detail those with binoculars will see, but you will also affect your guide's ability to interpret wildlife behaviour - or indeed spot wildlife. Binoculars are also a safari guides' number 1 safari accessory, and they need their binoculars with them at all times to simply be able to do their job. This is even more true on walks where he/she will rely on their binoculars to spot big game in good time and thereby prevent potentially dangerous situations. If you also have your own binoculars on a walk, you may be the one who spots the twitch of an ear, or rump of an elephant, on the path ahead. This explains why binoculars are also an important safety tool on safari. A TIP FROM THE EXPERTS: Turn your binoculars around, aim the eyepiece at an insect, flower, grains of sand or leaf, look through the lens with one eye and your binoculars become a powerful microscope. Your binoculars will bring macro and micro Africa closer to you.

*Tech Talk: What all the numbers mean.
