Hi

I am going to Kenya and Tanzania on a safari trip in January (am I excited or what?).

My query is about whether or not to buy (rent?) a teleconverter for the trip?

I have no knowledge or experience of using teleconverters.

The kit I will be using is:
D7000
AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VRII
Monopod

What are the pros and cons?
Is it best buying - or renting?
Should I use Nikon - or a third party, eg Tamron?
Do I need one at all or will I get what I want without one?

The wealth of knowledge and experience of fellow Nikonians would be most welcome.

Many thanks in advance.
