Kino Flo Diva-Lite 400 Universal Kit..bulb type question.
 
I'm going with the Kino Flo Diva-Lite 400 Universal Two Fluorescent Light Kit (100-265VAC)
for a trip to Africa in 3 weeks.

Here's my question:

Should I go with the True Match Compact Fluorescent Lamp - 55 Watts/5500K - 21"
or go for the indoor 3200k bulbs? My idea now is to go with the 5500k bulbs and use orange gels for inside locations (knowing the 75% of my shooting with be outdoors). There are two bank of lights in this kit which I am going with: Kino Flo | Diva-Lite 400 Universal Two | KIT-D42-120U | B&H

Someone also suggested mixing bulb types in the fixture to get a unique light but I am skeptical of that. Anyone use these lights in the field have any advise?
