Space is indeed an issue. I will also be doing some mountain hiking on the same trip, before the safari. I will not carry this lens in my backpack (I usually hike with the 15mm Ltd, either 43 or 35 and sometimes the 70mm). But it will take space in the cabin bag.

Pick up a used DA* 60-250 then (I'm a hiking photographer) who uses the DA15 and DA 20-40 Ltd. If you want to save more weight and not fussy about top IQ the 55-300 PLM.
