Suggestions for trip to Africa
8 months ago

Hi.  I'm going on a photo safari in South Africa (Madekwi) in about a month.  I have a 5DIII and a 1DX.  Current lenses that I'm likely going to bring are 16-35, 70-200 2.8 IS II, 200-400 with 1.4x TC and maybe a 100mm Macro and a 1.4x TC III.  I've been reading that even my longest lens may be too short to take full advantage of this trip.  Should I consider renting a 600mm or an 800mm instead of, or in addition to the 200-400mm?  Also, for those of you who have carried this type of gear around the world, any suggestions about transporting the big lenses?  In other words, do I keep them in their original cases, put them in cases like a Think Tank International, etc?  Do I dare check them if they're well protected??
