I've been out of the trade for a while now so I don't know all the latest models. Spec wise, I think you'd struggle to do better than a good 8x42 or a 10x42 (where the first number is magnification and the second number is the diameter of the front lens in mm). As you go up in magnification, your own natural hand shake also becomes magnified. Don't assume that higher magnification is always best. If you're out all day, the comfort factor of being able to hold a good pair of 8x (sometimes even 7x) steady can be the real winner. Certainly the larger 42mm lenses should let plenty of light in for use in the early morning and later evening and give you a comfortable field of view for spotting wildlife. Hope that helps, enjoy your safari!
