Best Lens for Safari!

I will go to Safari in Kenya in August! It is my first time to go Safari. However, I am still thinking what is the best lens combination for Safari. I will bring my 60D, 5D and my new 1DX (will buy) bodies. I have the following combination:-

1) 100-400L + 24-105L + 14L
2) 28-300L + 400 5.6L + 14L
3) 70-200 2.8Lii + 24-105L + 14L + x1.4 + x2

I have the following questions also:-
1) Is 180mm Marco useful in safari? or just use 70-200 + extender tube?

2) Is 400 2.8L or 500 4L very useful in safari? I saw many photos are taken by using 400mm+. Do I need to buy one for Safari? Not cheap! may not have enough time to practice!

I also have the following lens:-
24.4L, 50.2L, EFS17-55 2.8, 70-300DO

Thanks!
