Tripod or Monopod?

I'm going to be visiting the Islands in February to see the penguins and, hopefully, photograph them. I'll be traveling light and i'm wondering if a monopod or tripod would be necessary. I've also looked at dome of the tabletop size tripods, as it seems that many of the best pictures are taken from near to the ground. Hopefully (are you listening, Santa) I will have a long telephoto lens to support.

You are better starting a new question (click on "Ask Question") rather than join this advert for tripod makers.

Yes, you can fly from Cape Town, but it would either be via Madrid and Santiago, Chile, or through Brazil or Buenos Aires to Santiago.

From Santiago, there is a weekly flight by LAN through Punta Arenas.

If you are coming from the UK, fly via Madrid on Iberia or LAN, or use the RAF flight from Brize Norton. Contact the Falklands Government office in London for details.
