Namibia/Botswana self drive
Posted 26 September 2016 - 02:23 PM
I live off grid in a remote part of Costa Rica and feel relatively self sufficient. However, Africa is another game altogether. Forgive me for asking the obvious and possibly, redundant questions. I have an itinerary that I can paste later but on the initial, is there required yellow fever vaccine flying from US or, on the return? A good travel insurance reference? How best should I acquire a phone? Previous posts recommend buying a cheap cell in Windhoek with pre paid data. We are there mid June through July 2017 and wonder if fully geared, double tented trucks provide warm enough bedding, I.e. Bushlore rentals.

your home sounds great and your trip sounds interesting but the place to get more answers is in the self drive forum

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.

Welcome. To be honest in July in the Kalahari there is no such thing as enough warm bedding!
I would buy a few cheap blankets, give them to those that need them more at the end of the trip and take a hot water bottle.
