    As long as your Safari has 9 cogs in back either of those shifters you linked to will work fine.

    I like the REI offering. I dislike the gear position indicator and you can remove it for a cleaner bar. Cheaper is nice and I prefer simplicity especially when it comes to touring.

    You may like the SRAM grip shifters. I had the Shimano and didn't like them. as I use treking bars, the grip shifts work well for me

    The Paul Thumbies and Shimano Bar Ends are a fantastic combo, easy to use and bulletproof. I use this setup on my bikes and it works great.
