With the introduction of these new Bird Watching heads, Gitzo continues its tradition in inventing unique high performance solutions, highly specialized by application. Bird Watching is a special experience, with completely different requirements from video and photo applications. In spite of this, all the heads used by bird watchers are actually developed for video and photo equipment. As a result Bird Watchers use larger, heavier and more complicated supports than they need.


When Gitzo launched the Mountaineer tripods in 1994, they were the World’s first carbon fibre tripods. Ever since then they’ve set the standard for performance and quality. The main feature of the range is the 6X carbon fibre tube, made of a unique structure of 6 crossed layers that maximises rigidity, vibration, absorption and lightweight performance, ideal qualities for nature photography and bird watching.

Traveler is a unique concept invented by Gitzo that has become a must for compact photo supports.
The revolutionary system comes from the intuition of folding the legs upside down in order to minimize the support folded length during transportation. The new Safari Traveler kit combines for the first time all of the desires of the keen bird watcher. It maximises extreme light weight, compactness, stable and vibration free performance, controlled and precise scope movements with a full size tall tripod for comfortable and long lasting observations.
Following Gitzo tradition, even the smallest detail has been taken care of in order to make the Safari Traveler Kit the ultimate tool for Bird Watching.
