- What do I pack for my travel?
Apart from season wise apparels we recommend you to wear comfortable clothes. Photography and Birding sessions being carried out on the beaches, we suggest you keep separate pairs of clothing only for the sole purpose, which could be discarded later. A camera cleaning kit could turn in handy after excessive usage on the sandy beaches.
- What photography equipment should I carry?
As Akshi is all about photographing birds, we suggest you to carry lenses with the maximum focal lengths. Tripods which can be turned into ground spreaders would prove to be useful. A pair of binoculars would be great for birding enthusiasts.
