Best projected coordinate system for a study area in Southern Africa

I have to an area extending between lat 0 and lat -35 and lon 9 and lon 45, in order to calculate the Topographic Wetness Index

I was wondering which one of the following projections would fit better for my purpose: Equidistant conic, Lambert conformal conic, Albers equal area conic.

I would also thinking to customize it by modifying the standard parallels of the chosen one so that they will be within my study area.

Is this the right think to do?


Thank you very much in advance for your help.
