Help a camera dummie!!!

Well here I am 5 weeks away from my first trip tp Kenya/ Tanzania and all I have is a Canon Powershot A510!!! Now I realize that I didn't do my homework on cameras. Will the compatable tele lens help? Heard it will only add about 6 feet of distance. HELP!!!!!

I don't know what a compatible tele lens is, but you should have at least 10x optical zoom. I think the A510 is 4x. I'd buy another camera or try to borrow one from a friend with more optical zoom capability. Otherwise I think you'll be disappointed.

You can buy a simple point and shoot with 10x optical zoom fairly inexpensively online for about $200-$300. If you have already a lot of memory cards for your A510, try to get a camera that's compatible with those cards.
