My wife and I are flying to Kenya/Tanzania for our first African trip for 25 days 17 of them safari, 2 at an orphanage near Arusha, 4 in Zanzibar, and 2 flying. We are driving to Philly, Pa for overnight stay and fly out this Tues 6-24 am flight.
We want to take thousands of pictures and I have 3 16 gb, an 8 gb sd cards but not sure that will be enough. Is it a good idea to bring my laptop so I can upload my pictures or is there any other options to uploading them? Is it safe to leave at camp/hotels or would I need to worry about bringing it on the jeep with it bouncing around. Is there much service in Kenya/Tanz as we will be staying in semi luxury tents/lodges on our safaris?
We would like bring some small gifts for kids at the orphanage. I know soccer balls has been mentioned that aren't blown up but that seems to still be a lot of space taken up in our luggage and we have like 8 stops before we get there.
We have 19 hour flight times. Any suggestions anything to take for comfort for the flight and maybe double on the jeep rides?
Wow, we are almost ready for one our lifetime dreams we haven't done yet.
