Re: Going on Safari in several months-lens advice please.

Don't necessarily agree with your assessment of Kruger Park, especially the private lodges adjacent to it.  400mm equivalent is all I ever used at Londolozi and Mala Mala.  The vehicles got us very close most of the time.  I can only remember one shot where I wish I had more reach.

Since OP is going to Tanzania, this is not all that pertinent, but didn't want others scared of by bush country comments.  As you look at Mike's images, most are at 300mm, but at least one was 200mm.
