"Weight Allowance"

Hello,

I am very new to photography. The last few months, I have been hustling to learn all I can because I am going on a safari. I am thoroughly enjoying this new hobby and know I have a lot to learn. I started with a Nikon 3200 and recently bought a 7100 because of potential future lens issues.

I feel silly asking all the experts on this forum about weigh allowances, but it is a concern. I will be taking a small aircraft between camps. This craft only allows 44lbs in total. This is hard to believe given that my equipment is close to 20 lbs. When researching what equipment people take on safari, it appears as if it is quite a bit and 20 lbs is not over the top.

Is there anything you would suggest I leave home???

I am taking:
Nikon 3200
Nikon 7100
Tamron 18-270/3.5-6.3VC
200-500 mm F/5-6.3
Nikkor Macro Lens
Tokina Wide Angle Lens
Nikkor 50mm 1.8D AF Lens
Monopod
Various Filters
batteries
chargers
etc.

Thanks for your thoughts,
Lydia
