Re: teleconverter or longer zoom for 5100

I don't believe the Nikon teleconverters will work with the Nikon lenses you mention.  There may be third party alternatives, but I'd check.  The common advice is that the best image quality for the lowest price is going to be the 300 f4 with a 1.4 TC.  That's what I use and it is very good.

But if I was going on a safari I'd do myself a favor and rent the new version of the 80-400 and either rent or buy a 1.4TC.  This is going to give the best flexibility and IQ.
