    Hi Everyone,

    I previously posted the "Gap Year choice of Lens" earlier this week but it
    has led to some other related questions.

    Firstly I am now considdering renting a long lens (100-400 L zoom or even
    300/400 L prime) while I am over there rather than buying a lower spec item
    outright and having to lug it around the world with me. The problem is I
    dont know where to start or how much it would cost. Does anyone know of
    anywhere in South Africa where I could rent the equipment (preferably near
    to Kruger park)?

    Which brings me to the second question. Regardless of whether I buy a
    longer zoom or rent a lens I will still require some sort of insurance
    during the trip. Have any of you had any experience with camera equipment
    insurance companies and would you be prepared to recomend a few? Do you
    have any comparitive costs?

    Thanks in advance,

    The first place to check is your homeowner/rentor insurance company;
    you do trust them, right?
