Recommended safari to South Africa

Hello forum members,

I finally decided to buy the Fuji S2 pro, and I received it last week. I am new in digital land. But my first pictures looked promising.
I have to do a lot of reading.

My first question is, the guy in the shop recommended me The
Nikon 24-85 3,5/4,5 G-ED Is this a good lens.

Second question, I am going on safari to South Africa, and I am looking for a good telezoom lens, do you have any recommendations in this matter, I have looked up and down to this form but I am more confused then when I started. I have seen the Sigma 50-500 and the pictures on this forum looked very nice but I think this one is quite heavy. And it is not always possible to use a tripod but the prize looks right. The other one I have read a lot about is the Nikon 80-200 2.8 this one has of course a shorter reach but is faster I think, and more expensive (what is a decent price for a secondhand 2.8 Nikon) what are your recommendations. Any information is welcome.

It is not what you have, but how you are.
