    I was just in Kenya this Feb. If you are not going to be doing any low light photography, you will most likely want to take along the 12-50. If you are going on safari you will want a lens that is as long as possible, preferably the 100-300, or you will miss a ton of great shots. I found that street photography was not as good as people in Kenya didn't like to have their pics taken.

    I'll turn the whole of Africa and it is not my intention to go to the safari, so at most I'd settle for a simple 40-150.
    To photograph people in Africa need to handle it, you can not steal shots from far away, we must first establish a relationship.
