  • What lens to use for wildlife safari?

    Posted by Shoumik Kahali on May 2, 2023 at 10:25 am

    I am traveling to Jim Corbett… I own Nikon D5300 and following glasses:

    1. Nikon kit lens 18-55mm

    2. Nikor 35mm f1.8 DX

    3. Tamron 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 DiII VC

    Can you suggest which lens would be better for above trip? … Can’t buy new lens now…

    I want to keep one lens on while on safari tour..don’t want to change lens during tour. What would be the best among the above three.?

    Consider me novice hobbies with fair knowledge of camera functions and composition… First time wildlife tour…

    Tamaron 18-200 shud be the best out of the lot due to it’s aperture & focal length.

    Out of 3 you mentioned 200mm Tamron, renting lens is also an option check that too

    Thanks Munish and Prince.


    Do you have any suggestion on from where I can rent a lens at Jim Corbett?

    I heard about renting lenses but don’t know much about the how and where to rent.
