Looking to buy an upgrade from a standard point and shoot. Should I go higher end point and shoot or micro four thirds?

We are going on a safari (and hiking kilimanjaro) in a feb, and wanted to get a new camera. We have a small Canon point and shoot now. In addition to the trip, we are planning on having a baby sometime in the future and want a higher quality camera than what we have now.
I am a graphic designer, and have always wanted a nice camera, but have never been able to justify the cost, or bulk, of a dslr. I'm an amateur, but am interested in taking more photos if I have a decent camera. Before I was frustrated with the lack of control, esp in low light.
I've been looking at the Panasonic gf1, which seems to get great reviews. The problem is the lens - I'd have to buy a more telescope lens to be able to use it on the trip.
So should I buy the gf1 (with the pancake lens) and also a more telescopic lens? Or buy a high quality digital camera with a 24x zoom (for example)?
