What is a decent telephoto lens/adapter combination for a trip to Africa on my NEX 7? i have the 18-200LE.

Never been to Africa... jealous.

The 18-200LE is a great all around performer during the day  (I assume you'll be taking landscape and animals far away).  You may want a faster lens for low-light situation (evening get togethers, dinner)... either 50mm/1.8 or 30/2.8.  The Zeiss 24mm always produces stunning pictures from what I see, but at a premium.

Consider a light travel tripod to steady the telephoto shots.
