I am going on safaris in Botswana and Namibia in three months and need a good pair of binoculars. Alas, I know nothing about binoculars and need help selecting a pair. I want small and light with great magnification. What size and magnification should I look for? I cannot pay hundreds of dollars (most of my money is going toward the trip!), so I am looking for great quality along with economy.

Dorothy, when I was there last fall one of my fellow travelers
had a pair of Cannon binoculars that were excellent, light weight
and not too big. She said that she paid around $80. I wish mine
were half as good as hers. I hope this helps. Botswana is amazing,
enjoy your trip.

Thank you, Sonia. That's right in my price range. I'll check the Canons.
