Unfortunately that's too expensive for most of us ! that's why a new version of the 100-400 L IS is absolutely needed

I store my gear in Pelican Storm hard cases with a desiccant pack, which protects them from leaks, toddlers, dust, etc. I do keep the lens mounted, and I have a small case (Storm im2075) that just fits the gripped 5DII with 24-105mm mounted, and a 430EX II along side - that's ready to go for shots around the house. My next most-used lenses are kept in a medium-sized case (Storm im2300) - 70-200 II, 100mm L Macro and the 'holy trinity' of primes (35L, 85L II, 135L). All the rest (7D, remaining lenses, accessories) goes in a big Pelican 1600.
Hope that helps...
Make sure you have secured the services of the very good guide to have the opportunity of seeing and photographing the animals you want
A Canon 180 macro with 1.4 might be a safer option
So you want to have a lens which is 100 more in reach than the 200-400, and has the same max aperture of F4
I'd avoid using the 100 for snakes... its not quite as tight a crop as you'd think...
