    the simplest way out, if ur luggage space permits, a portable dry box with sufficient amount of silica gel or dehumidifers such as thirsty hippo should suffice. these are available at most camera shops, and supermarkets for household dehumidifers. otherwise, ur camera bag packed with silica gel or dehumidifers may serve as a viable substitute for the dry box, but of cos it'll be much less effective.

    if u'll be using ur camera quite frequently during the trip, i suppose there shouldnt be much cause for worry regarding humidity issues and camera maintenance.

    cheers.

    Some basic cleaning of the body and lens at the end of the day would be sufficient. There shouldn't be a problem of fungus if you use your camera everyday.

    How long will you be there? If not for long term then just have fun shooting. dont need to worry too much.

    Can try some silica gel in your bag... But if using everyday outdoors, fungus shouldn't be a problem...

    Good question about the batteries if there's no electricity there...
