If you're a woman...check out the camera bags at Epiphanie or Jo-Totes. There are some stylish bags that look like purses, not camera bags.

24-105 is practically useless for wildlife
I have a completely different perspective having done the northern Tanzania safari circuit as the OP is going to do. I found the 24-105 to be the perfect lens for times when the animals were close to our land rover, which was pretty often.
just lift bro
I may be naive but it seems like you can have a one lens solution in the 28-300L lens. It seems to be a perfect fit. Wide and long. Although heavy at 3.7 pounds.
I just returned from a trip to Namibia (a little different from tanzania). Like you I had questions about the gear to take with me. In the end, as many members recommend, I went with 24-105mm and 70-300mm. It covers almost all my needs. You can take a look at some of my pictures if you want!
Personally I prefer the 70-300mm than 100-400mm especially concerning bokey (and weight)
Hope it helps
too short and compromised, I'd look 100-400L (or at least 70-300L + kenko 1.4x DGX TC)
400mm is still a good length. The tammy is still the best all rounder when it comes to all in one, the 70-300mm is a decent choice but I still think 400 is a minimum.
Problem with the 70-200mm is that removing the conv anywhere in the field will most probably create dust and do you want to lug that around for low light a fast prime makes more sense. 35mm F2s a good choice and is a nice length for landscapes.
if the 16-35mm your missing 35-100 or 150. Instead I would take the 24-105 and a fast prime for low light, 24 will be wide enough for landscapes.
A minor consideration was already having the 300 II and wanting more separation b/t it and a super T.
I have the 600 II and I am very happy with it. I use it with the 1.4xIII extender most of the time. If you´re not used to long lenses, you´ll be surprised to how many times you´ll say 840mm isn´t enough.
