Is anybody in a position to update for the forthcoming season?
I plan to be there Dec 3-7, 2012 inclusive, doing 8-9 safari drives.

Thank you.

ok so i was shooting with my 70x300 and a friends 300mm prime. I also got a few with my 650mm f8.

if you going to Bera the 70x300 is fine. if you planning rann of kutch, then that is birding and you need a longer lens. That is my recommendation.

The jeep fare at the hotel and the counter will be identical. the only thing is if you find one or two foreigners to share the jeep then you will save some money.

Thanks, happyarun,

Maneeshgoal, author of Leopard Safari in Bera thread, has just advised me to bring a longer lens (preferably with a wider aperture) in my forthcoming trip this winter as his images were cropped. I'll bring my longest lens as well for Bera, LRK & Gir in late Nov/early Dec.

As regards jeep safaris at Gir, I'm now communicating thr' my agent in India (?might make a difference?) as I have hitherto been unable to reach arvind kanabar by overseas calls. Originally, I planned to go there without hotel or safari bookings as early Dec is reported in IM to be an off season, as borne out by the fact that many people just landed there without bookings. However, it has just come to my notice that early Dec is also a peak season and, as a result, pre-bookings seem necessary.

I've been seeking a partner at Gir by having posted a thread in IM's India Travel Partners. I was wondering what else I can do to advertise.
