What would you bring for Camera equipment? Digital or film?

What speed film? how big a lens? Tripod? Auto focus or manual focus? Point and shoot or full size SLR gear?
I have spent several weeks in the parks this year and watched all levels of Photography "experts" during the tours and a few who hunted with me. Quite educational to be around guys who really know their stuff with cameras!
What makes the best film camera set up for wildlife photography which is typically done in fading light with some longer then "archery" distances involved.

Which digital camera would you use?

Though a safari is down the road, I do have an opinion!

I like a digital for short distance and cost, it doesn't cost anything to shoot these pictures. I have a older SLR that I would like to upgrade and get some more powerful lenses for better 'ranging' abilities.
