I was in Tanzania for two weeks a few years back before I got some of my better galss.  The 50 200 with the teleconverters would do well and cut down on the weight.  You are constantly bouncing in the trucks and the dust is usually really bad so you really don't want to switch lenses often.  I had to send my camera in after the trip because of the dust.  Remember to take some type of sand bag to use on the top of the vehicle to protect your equipment.  You always want the longest lenses but the weight and space precude your taking everything you want.
