I like taking photos of birds but my main subject on this trip will be the big 5. I have still got to get my own ‘Leopard in a tree’ shot so the combination of the 70-200 & 300pf should hopefully do the trick if I’m presented with the opportunity !!

You ideally need the 500 for a leopard in a tree.

My logic is based on in most of the Tanzanian parks the drivers cannot go off road.

The nearest suitable tree may be 50 yards from where the driver can go, and leopards are relatively small - as in smaller than a Labrador dog.

For those who have not been to East Africa, there is a good chance of a driver getting within 5 yards of a much larger lion.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than the equipment being used.
