Safari advice

Nice shots, Colin.

I'm doing a two-month safari later this year from Kenya to South Africa. I'm taking Micro Four Thirds gear, including a 75-300 and three primes (12/2.0, 17/1.8 and 45/1.8)

Do you have any advice that might be helpful?

I'm weighing up whether or not to take a tripod. Some people have suggested beanbags to help with shooting out the windows of safari vehicles. However, very few of the people offering advice have actually been to Africa. I'm tempted to leave as much stuff at home as I can, as I prefer to travel light, but I don't want to leave something out and regret it.
