Safari in Africa

Hi. I’m headed to Africa for my first (and could be only) safari. I have a Nikon D40 and the lens it came with as well as a 70-300 telephoto. I want to bring a fast point and shoot. Thinking of the Canon X10. Just want to have a back up p&s. I am debating if I should buy a wide angle lens? Any thoughts about wide angles or any other equipment I should really consider for safari purposes? [ Join Discussion ]

I did a Safari in Africa trip a couple of years ago. I brought my Nikon D80 with a 18-200 VR lens, I wished I brought a longer lens. 300mm is good, but I think 400mm would be better. I don’t think a wide angle lens is necessary for a Safari trip.

Have fun!
