I went to Northern Tanzania in 2009.  Based on that experience, I have a few commens.   I think that the choice of zoom lenses over primes is a good one.  Also, taking two bodies and not changing lenses is also good.  The 300 mm maximum length may be a bit short, 400mm would be better.  Also, you will need a plug adapter for European style 240V outlets(assuming you are in the US) and an invertor for the cigarette lighter would also be helpful.  You did not state where in Africa you are going and the type of photography you are pursuing, but the above advice would be relevant to Northern Tanzania and Southern Kenya.

Thanks. I choose the 300 overt the 100-400 mostly due to size and weight. The 100-400 is just too heavy for me.

Live got adapters and cigarette lighter adapters as well for charging. Also bringing my iPad  for posting to a blog at night.
