    Looking for a country in Africa, that will give me the locations I need: here a general idea ; high bushgrass(4-6ft) close to forest-like area and open range with little river crossed by dirt road without a bridge… sounds easy doesn’t it?
    Then I need a place with afordable rental rates for camera, light and grip. It has to be cheaper than shipping/flying most it of down there. Because I could get the stuff for free in Europe (only insurance to be paid). So anybody out there with similar problems that have already been solved? Our ideas? Contacts? Already thought of SA, Kenya and Mozambique. Comments very welcome! My contact is

    Kenya is the ideal place for such a location. I will help you get the location i have already some place in mind but i need to make sure is really reflects the kind of location you need. About the camera, i need to know the type and i’ll give you the local rates. For Light and grip shouldnt be a worry, you will get reasonable rates just give a detail plans of what you exactly need.
