while in africa...

Just got back from some African traveling. Saw a few interesting things, including this 110 with rear step setup for it's attached tent. Why didnt i think of that.

Follow-up Post:

this 110 was in Namibia. If you were going to play in the sand anywhere, this would be the place. I have to go back!

Did you get by Uganda and city of Entebbe?
I am leaving for there this Saturday. I expect to see a bunch of LRs.
My trip will be focused on the North Lake Victoria region and some safari parks, same area.

Let me ask you a question, how would you answer the following:
"I wish I had brought/packed ..........for the trip?"
I am curious what I will forget that is needed.

If you get a chance, check out victoria falls. Its pretty amazing to see that especially when there are elephants at the top playing in the water. Africa is a beautiful place

I wish I had brought;

1. a longer lens for my camera (I had a 400 2.8)
2. a better hat, I was down to only a baseball cap by then
3. a good field guide, I relied on one of our drivers the entire time in the game parks and would have liked to have had something to read at night

we were in Namibia for a short while, then to Zambia and Victoria Falls, Zambese river. on a previous trip we did Tanzania. I really enjoy the whole experience in Africa. Just relax, and let it happen.

Tx. We hope to have a great time. My brother in law is an electrical engineer there. He is building things to get the locals a regular supply of electricity. I am in his hands for the safari stage.
My little one - 5yrs old - is total reall excited.
