I would think twice about 200-400, you are loosing over one stop on long end, also less DOF control, background blur on safaris are sometimes really important to separate animal from background.

Also on safaris you are on vehicle so not to much to cary around. I would always bring longest fastest lens I have to safari.

Some of my images from first safari in Masai Mara:

Really amazing images! Love these. May I ask, since we are on a gear-related site, what gear specifically cameras/lenses you used? I didn't see a way to view EXIF data on the images.

Thanks Mike, I am glad you liked them, this images are mostly done with Canom 1dx2 and Canon 500mm f4 II , some are used with 1.4tc and in rare cases I used 2.0tc.

Also I had with me 5d4 and 70-200mm f4. but didn't use it as much.

All the best
