Just had another thought....

Is this a "once in a lifetime" trip? If so, rent a D4. The D800 is not a low light specialist and once you go above 800ISO you are throwing away the benefits of the high megapixel sensor. Image quality from the D4 at 1600 and higher is head and shoulders above the D800 at the same ISO. The D800 is clearly better at ISO800 and lower though. Also with the D4, the higher burst rate could be handy with moving animals or birds in flight.
