I suppose you know Which camera they use, and whether they shoot only in 
RAW. Good quality high capacity cards are not cheap. I would find out at 
which points there are provisions for back ups to the cloud. I would get 
no higher capacity cards than they estimate will be shooting in one day, 
+ a fudge factor of 25%. Bring as many cards, as days they will be away 
from a place where they can backup to the cloud.

As I see it power for batteries is the biggest problem. Depending on 
their camera's battery usage, figure battery usage per day, and bring 
bring enough batteries to get them to the charging station furthest from 
the preceding station. While there is a fair amount of  planning 
involved. it is worth doing so.
