XF 100-400 / APS-C sensor + subject distance sharp focus limit

Hello everyone,

Just got back from safari, I initially posted some of the shots here :

XT2 Safari AF Settings

I've included rough distance of subject (rough estimation + double check with average size of subject and focal length,pixel size etc...)

I wanted to have your opinion regarding sharpness , the possibilities of this setup and my results.

Im happy with the picture I've taken, just asking out of interest about my new gear.

It seems from my experience that if you look at these image at 200% I have great sharpness on my subject at 100m or less away, acceptable at 200m away (even considering moving subjects) and goes down greatly from here.

Consider heat haze, my own movement and the context, would you say that my shots are consistent with the setup or should I have greater sharpness and I'm doing something wrong.

What is your experience ?
