    It is always better to work with a small crew. For example, in South Africa's Kruger national park local guides(park rangers) are usually available with trucks that makes it possible for filmmakers to shoot from a safe distance. The park rangers also have a wealth of knowledge and experience that would be valuable content for such documentary.
