Assume a typo you you meant 300mm f4. Personally I have not been imipressed with results from that combo in the past. But I was using older bodies e.g. D90, D300.

You have not left your exif info in on the photos I looked at. There's a big difference between taking shots of close flowers with tiny DOF, compared to a lion and other animals on safari. Personally if I was you I would stick to the 1.4x teleconverter and crop when needed. Many people say that the animals often come very close on safari and being stuck at 500mm might hamper you anyhow. That is what I would do anyways - stay at 420mm and know that the images will be super sharp and I'll be able to crop, as you will be able to liberally with your D800.
