Small sandbags will be available to rest your camera on, for shoots from the vehicle. Power points will be available in camp to recharge batteries. It is recommended you have a camera bag that can protect your equipment from dust. One supplier of plastic camera bags against water (that can also be used for dust) is.

Safaris in January and February, that pass through the villages you will visit, will arrange for traditional dances to be performed for your lense in March.

Helping the herders bring in the cattle at dusk will be arranged for camera opportunities.

Portrait opportunities for scarification of men and women among the Mundari, Toposa, Jie, Murle, Dinka, and Nuer, will be arranged.
