Hi Marie, one thing we have found useful is a sharp knife, although the knives in KTP have been ok we have been caught out in Kruger so now that is a must have on our list. Head torches are better than a torch and we often hang them around our necks instead of on our heads - works great! In a previous thread I think arks mentions small fruit juices which can double as ice packs - we took her advise and now we use them all the time - so much better than trying to make ice. We buy ice in Upington to last the first day or so and then it is down to the frozen fruit juices ... we buy and average of 2 each per day so the 'ice packs' slowly dwindle. One thing we do lug from the UK is a small lantern - this has been a godsend as it just gives a little more light when braaiing or going to the loo in the middle of the night (plus I like to read before bedtime so it helps here too
) The chocolate sachets are a great idea but not sure if you can buy them in Picki 'n Pay (if we are in hotels before our trip we normall 'collect' them
) This time around we are bringing them with us as last time we ended up having to buy a big tin of chocolate ... which we left behind at the end of our trip. oh, and buy small containers of milk instead of 2pint size and they double up as ice packs too (we normally go for 1/2 litre cartons). Strong tin foil is a must and don't forget the firelighters and lastly, as I said previously, Amarula and hot chocolate is very yummy and a perfect bed time treat - actually Amarula instead of milk is great in coffee too .... especially on those cold mornings (mornings?? hey, I'm still a Saffie at heart!!) Ok, better stop now - I'm rambling!!!
Have a fantastic trip!!!
