that's what i used and i think it's the best single lens that you can use. make sure to take a monopod with tilt head :D.

It's certainly The Lens to bring with you. Ed Rader used it for his terrific shots of his safari (and I see he's posted his link); I used it for mine (external link).

Thanks, Ed! Considering that I'd had the dSLR for a total of six weeks and the 100-400 for a total of a few days when I began the trip, I was very pleased with the results overall.

i shot more than 60-gigs of raw files in 10 days with the 1d mark III.....that's over 5k pictures. i had 43-gigs of CF cards with me.

i was well-prepared for the trip -- i had a year to plan -- but if i could do it over i would have had 70-80 gigs of cards with me so i wouldn't have had to erase any cards after they were backed up to my epson p3000.

it felt really strange to format my CF cards....in fact i spent alot of time agonizing over which cards to format.

i won't make that mistake again....i'll have two copies of all my files on the next epic vacation :D.
