Telephoto lens for Olympus OM-D E-M10 (Kruger National Park in South Africa)

I am considering getting Olympus OM-D E-M10 for a student the will spend several weeks at the Kruger National park in South Africa. I would get the 14-42 kit lens I am looking for a telephoto zoom. The Olympus 75-300 has very good reach for distant wildlife, but I am afraid it is too long as the only telephoto zoom.

A 45-200 lens may be a more versatile range, but other than a Panasonic that has poor resolution according to dxomark, I have not found any options. Are there any other good options from Olympus, Panasonic or third party? I am assuming that to get optimum autofocus, I am limited to the micro 4/3 lenses.

Olympus E-M1 Pentax K-r
