300mm or 400mm for safari?

Hi,

I am going on safari to s. Africa in dec. I plan to hire either the 300mm f4 or 400mm f5.6.

Any suggestions on which to go for? It's really a question of focal length- I don't know which is best to compliment the other lenses I'll take, which are:
200 2.8
70-300
1.4 extender
24-105

obviously I can use the 1.4 on 200, 300 and 400, but I don't know what will be best when on the game drives.

Thoughts?
