Not a bad idea...but the modern version is a 300 WSM. Same velocities.
The thing that would concern me the most about Africa is the 50/50 chance that your ammo won't arrive at the same time as you. This idea brings up cartridges that you can buy there. 270 win, 300 win mag and most of the British calibers in 358 and 375. There may be some others that I don't know about.
Just something to think about.
