Need a good tele-photo travel lens for D750

I purchased the D750 with the 24-120 kit lens (after using a D90 with 18-200 lens for 9 years) and have found that I don't always have enough reach for zooming in to take pictures of birds or things in the distance.  I am traveling to South America at the end of the month and want to by an additional lens for this purpose.  We will be in the Galapagos (which is where I think I would want the extra reach), as well as Machu Picchu, Peru, Igauacu Falls, Buenos Aires, and Rio de Janeiro.  I was thinking of getting the 28-300 (because of its size), but my 24-120 is a great lens and this seems redundant.  I was looking at the 70-300, but is this lens any good?  I was also looking at the 200-500, but I'm worried that would be too heavy for me to hand hold and carry while hiking around.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
