Going to Kenya

Off on Safari next year and was wondering what would be the best filters to use i.e. make and type.
I have got the lens range covered I think. Sigma 17/70 f2.8,Canon 70/200 f2.8 L (non IS ) and a Sigma 170/500
Any help on polarising filters and which ones would be best for money. Cheap and cheerful or ?????

The skys in Kenya tend to be a blue grey with some cloud.
At noon your having to squint to see without glasses---so it goes without saying that your lens will have the same issue.
I went in January--but theres no real seasons.
A polarizor for anything with a lot of sky in,a low 0.3 ND screw on for general daytime shots,NG full range for beach shots.
The tides ranges are very big in Kenya,and sun up and down are very quick--in three weeks i only managed one morning at sunrise with the tide fully in---the rest of the time tide was out--and thats all the way to the reef--about 2 miles.
Hope this helps
Drop me a line if any questions
