I used a Digital Foci 500GB portable hard drive for back-up storage every night on my Tanzanian safari last November. The tour operator said that the environment wasn't really "right" for a laptop - I didn't find that to be the case. I was more concerned about the weight of the PC & power supply, external drives, etc.(lugging it through airports, etc.). The Digital Foci unit will read 20-some-odd different data card types (including CF cards) directly via embedded readers and had the bonus of a 3" LED display, which let me pass that day's shots around the group every night at dinner.

My recommendation: Either spring for enough data cards to have a fresh one for each day's shooting (don't forget a means of marking each card with a unique label!), or purchase a portable storage unit. You will be thankful you did!
