Help me choose Nikon lens for safari photography at Kruger National Park
1

Hi all,

I am looking to buy a Nikon AFS lens for my Nikon D5100. As of now, the only two options available are the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR and Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

Which one would you recommend for wildlife photography? I will be staying at a private lodge and birding is not a priority.

Many thanks!!

P.S.: I should mention that I have a low budget ($250 max) and time constraints and these two are the only options available in my city.

ANSWER:
Nikon D5100
