Nikon DX 55-300mm or FX 70-300mm?

Hello everyone,

I'm thinking of buying a long zoom for my trip to a safari. Would the 55-300mm suffice? Or is the 70-300mm worth the extra money? I read somewhere about the slower autofocus for the 55-300mm but how slow is it really? I'm not into sports photography either. Just want something that can shoot animals for my trip.

Thank you.
