Re: africa safari

Henry, I suggest you get the Nikkor 200-400VR plus TC(s).

I think this combo will provide excellent results. Focal length is very much needed.

If travelling in gameparks with a safari vehicle there will not be enough room for a tripod. A monopod, however, would be usefull as you could tie it to the hand bars of the vehicle.

For regular vehicle safaris a car window tripod + ballhead attachment such as that Kirk produces can be very useful.

Just a thought!
Enjoy your trip. Africa is a fascinating continent!

Cheers - Herman
