Pack your cameras!
Luggage and bags: Pack your camera in a padded backpack. Don't use a fancy logo covered camera bag though. Keep things simple and discrete.
Photo Equipment: I use a Panasonic DMC FZ10 which has a Leica zoom telephoto lens that's very compact. Film cameras are generally a hassle in Africa because the heat isn't good for the film and if one runs out, good luck finding it for sale. I use a 1gb SD card and download to a 20GB portable hard-drive in an X-drive card-reader. We also take a compact digital video camera. Both still and video are required for satisfactory image taking of animals, in my opinion.
Miscellaneous: I also brought a pair of binoculars, but only used it at the watering hole vista point. The elephants and other animals are easy to spot in the field.
Luggage and bags: It is best to pack your stuff in soft bags or rucksacks for travelling on buses (public or chartered) or private car. Make sure they are lockable.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Walking shoes or boots. Warmer windproof jacket for the evening.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insect repellant. Malaria Prophylaxis. All the toiletries and medical supplies you think you might need as it is impossible to find it in Mole NP. Take an anticeptic hand wash.
Photo Equipment: Long telephoto lens for animal/bird photography. You need at least a 200mm lens for the elephants and ideally a 500mm for birds.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you are staying in the motel, you don't need camping gear.
