Good evening, thought i'd check in and sample the advise of veteran safaris. Here's my current line up for bodies:
Canon 1dx 1dx2 and 5 dmk3 7dmkII 600mm F4 II 200-400mm F4 100-400mmII, 24-105mm, along with extenders... i do own 70-200mm f 2.8 , 300 f2.8 II
My current plan is Canon 1dx 1dx2 and 5 dmk3 600mm F4 II 200-400mm F4 100-400mmII, 24-105mm, also i own the 24-70II f 2.8
Curious what you would do, as in the nat parks, it's not possible to off road, where in northern tanzania along the river i can..
Thks & Good Shooting

Hi, If your going in the summer there is no perfect place for the river crossing due to the HUGE crowds. Ive stopped doing migration crossing tours as everyone gets the same shots (if you even get a clear shot) Ive had more success getting a late river crossing in Kenya with only one other vehicle around, these conditions make for a much better unique photography experience.
Serengeti is very tight on off-road driving so you 600mm will be useful. In south serengeti you will get a better opportunity for closer images
