This is the trip of a lifetime (right?) for you. I would want to go with the best equipment, I could afford. I would take the 70-200, a wide angle zoom, and rent a long tele in the 300-400 range. I am not a great fan of the 2x teleconverters. I think I would prefer the 400 2.8, putting that  on my primary camera. That camera could be your D800, or you could rent a D4. If  you choose to go with a D600, as your second camera, the 70-200 would be put on. The teleconverter would stay in the bag for emergencies.
