Steiner Safari Ultrasharp 10x26

A camera is probably the most important travel item you will take on safari but don’t underestimate the practicality of a pair of binoculars. You will almost certainly wish you had brought along a pair while you’re sitting outside your rondavel overlooking the distant watering hole.

 

The German-made Steiner Safari Ultrasharp 10x26 binoculars (£120) have 10x magnification and are perfectly set up for safari use. Their objective lens measurement is 26mm so the image won’t be super bright during dusk but in good light these binoculars excel. They’re also small enough for a safari jacket pocket and come with a comfortable, grippy coating for extra stability. Great wildlife choice.
