D7200: should I choose 14 bit or 12 bit compressed raw?

I am off to a wildlife reserve in a couple of days and taking my 7200 and 200-500 along. I ordered a couple of 16gb ultra fast SD cards (80mb/s). Was testing the equipment over the weekend and shooting at 14bit raw as the output I was surprised to note that I was able to get only about 250 shots in a single memory card.

Should I choose the 12bit compressed raw as my file output? I am sure to shoot a lot of frames. As i do post processing in LR, I need to shoot raw. What are your recommendations?
