It was great to be able to get just enough clues from Robin on what to shoot and where to stop.  Having no group bus was a gift, as each car could make their own impromptu photo ops.. or not.  Lodges were clearly the best available and guide and driver support was fantastic--we were their flock for each day and were well taken care of.  I have taken tours to many countries and Robin's immersion of us into the culture was superb...the best !

 Camera Bag

Not much of a bag really, as I like to keep it simple.
Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 28-300mm f3.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens  (used 95% of the time)
Canon 16-35mm f 2.8 L USM Lens
77mm UV filter in front of each lens.
Manfrotto Monopod 695cx with a Manfrotto 3265 pistol grip
Manfrotto Tripod 055MF4  with a Manfrotto 322RC2 multi grip
(Robin was right, no need and not much great use for monopod.   Tripod could do both.   Will never pack both again.)
Extra battery
Canon G9 as backup, not used once, with extra battery.
SANdisk Ultra IV cards 16 Gb x 2
MacBookPro 15" computer to download nightly and cull
Apple Aperture software, v. 2.1.4 for efficient editing/retouching
