With all the mod-cons around these days, a pen and paper is perhaps the last thing someone might take on safari.
But according to Annie Scott, this is one item people on wildlife excursions need to pack in their luggage as it can be difficult remembering which bird or animal is which, Gadling reports.
She added: "It's a shame to have endless pictures of things you can't identify properly."
Therefore, Ms Scott recommended those on safari holidays make a list in chronological order of the creatures they have spotted so that it's easier to tell when going through the photos back on home soil.
What's more, she advised people to listen to their guides and not take their advice for granted.
Individuals keen on seeing an array of animals might like to go on a safari in Kenya, as recommended by John and Sandra Nolan, writing for the Calgary Herald.
