If you're heading over to Africa anytime soon, you might want to check out this article I wrote for Explore 64: Gearing up for an African Safari.
A light-hearted look at what you need to think about packing if you’re just popping over to Africa on vacation. Based on my safari in not-exactly-a-bargain Botswana. As you’d probably expect, the key is to travel light.
For a trip like this, it's important to get things that are lightweight, practical, and useful enough to take up some valuable space and weight. There are also some unique factors to this part of the world that influence what you need to bring along. My smart moves: indestructable shorts and a Buzz-off hat. My goof: no binoculars and not enough memory cards for the camera.
