wah you very ambitious. the lighting there is horrigible (so low!!!) and since you cannot use flash, the only thing you can compensate with is ultra-high ISOs, like 3200 or 6400.

unless you got a nightframing camera like the SOny 707/717... but even then taking a decent shot would be a challenge. i'd be interested to hear more of your results though.

good luck!!! :thumbsup:

correction.. i'm not ambitious.. i'm trying to find out if i'm able to take any pics at the night safari if i do make a trip down.. ;) no offence, larry..

so from the replies that i've got here guess the oni place i can take photos would be the front gate? :D :)

yah there are a coupla B&W film types with ISO 3200, like Ilford 3200 and Kodak TMAX 3200, which can push to 6400. even the D100 has a 3200 and 6400 ISO setting (aka HI 1 & 2).
