D5100 on Safari


I am going to Africa later in the year and need help deciding which lenses to take with. I don't want to change lenses while on safari.

I will be in Sabi Sands for 4 nights, Chobe in Botswana for 2 nights and 2 nights at Victoria Falls. I am more interested in the big 5 over birds.

I currently have only one body the D5100, but possibly could borrow a D40. Please provide suggestions for one body only and for 2 bodies in case I can get the 2nd body.

The lenses I have are:

Tamron 18-270 VR

Nikon AF-S VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED

Nikon 16-85 VR. I'm thinking this is the one to use at Victoria Falls.

Would it be worthwhile to get a wide angle lens? Comments and suggestions on lens appreciated.

Any help with the above or any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Elliot
