This is potentially a once in a lifetime trip and the photographic opportunity is extraordinary so I think she should consider renting for a trip like this.

The 100-400 is certainly a good all-around lens to start with, but do you think she'd use it much back at home?  If she were inclined to rent and is really enthusiastic about photography, she could bring a second body (a good, safe idea) and some great lenses that she wouldn't otherwise be interested in buying.

I'm headed back to Tanzania next month and I'm renting a second 5dmk3 and a 500mm mk2 to go along with my own lenses.  She might not be interested in lugging that kind of gear around but the point is renting opens up some doors.
