this is my first post
Soon I will be in Kruger Park (South Africa) for a self drive safari. Going out of the car is mostly not allowed except for some specific areas. Perhaps I will also make 1 or 2 night drives and it might be nice to make videos in the dark with infrared
I kindly ask your advice on the gear to bring and perhaps to purchase before going
Right now I have:
1) Iphone 6s
2) Iphone Xr
3) Boya By-MM1 external microphone with "deadcat" for wind noise canceling and a sort of "cage" to hold the smartphone
4) Canon Powershot 60 SH
5) Nikon D3100 + Sigma 5,0-6,3/150-600 DG OS HSM Contemporary
6) Bean bag
7) Go Pro Hero 6 Black
A) Do you think it's necessary I buy a camcorder or the results could be more or less the same with the gear I already have?
B) Do you think I could take night videos using a camcorder with infrared or using and infrared light as I learnt from some threads on this forum?
C) Any suggestions on how to shoot animals in the Kruger?
Thanks for any advice

When I did my African visit, I found my telephoto lens was used the most. A lot of animals are in the distance and you will need a telephoto lens to capture them. Didn't have a cell phone as they were not invented at that time.Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence -Carl Sagan
