D7100 User Settings for Safari

Hi, just got a D7100 with the 80-400G vr lens and have a question on AF Modes. I'm going on a safari in 5 days and need to get up to speed as much as possible. Previously I used a D90 so am somewhat familiar with Nikon bodies but this is bit of a different beast!  My backup camera is a Fuji XT-1.

My main concern is setting the U1 and U2 settings and this is where I could use some help.

Here's how I have it set so far and I'd like to get some feedback if you think I've done good and maybe what I might be missing or should look into...



Single point

AF-S set to Focus Priority

Auto ISO is set to Max 6400 and Minimum Auto (right in the middle)




Auto Area D21

AE-L/AF-L set to AF ON

AF-C set to Release Priority

Auto ISO is set to Max 6400 and Minimum Auto (right in the middle)


Any assistance is appreciated!
