I've made several trips to Africa before, but I just returned from three weeks in Kenya and Rwanda where I used my 200-400, 70-200, 28-70, and 10.5.
The 200-400 was awesome, but very challenging to use in a vehicle with 5 other people. I started out with it hanging from a Sidekick on a Gitzo CF monopod, but ended up handholding it for the most part.
It was also VERY difficult to transport. Both Kenya Airways and BA are really holding firm to their one carry-on rule, and my Airport Acceleration backback was jam-packed with photo gear, leaving no room at all for those non-photo-related items that we like to have in the cabin with us. As it was, I dodged a bullet because my pack weighed 27lb while the carry-on limit was 22lb. One member of our party was stopped to have his pack weighed, while another who had two smaller bags was made to check one of them.
I've started uploading some of the 100-or-so keepers. The first 14 shots here

are from the trip, with more to come...
