I've posted my many posts and questions starting FIFTEEN MONTHS AGO and now we're down to the final month before leaving for Tanzania.
Thank you all for your wisdom with my previous questions. I'll try not to come up with TOO many more in the next 30 days!
I do have some questions (yeah, I know) right now. This one is about charging cameras and phones.
I believe all my items are 120v/240v so I don't need a power converter.
I have an adapter (it does all sorts of stuff).
A few concerns:
1. We are staying in varying accommodation. I wonder if you can tell me about these types of accommodations and their charging capabilities:
a. Public camps. We are staying in public camps for 2 nights at a time twice (4 nights total) in our 8-night safari. Are there any charging possibilities in these public camps? (Lake Eyasi and Wild Palm).
b. Tented Camps. We are staying 2 nights in a Tented Camp. Do these types of camps generally offer charging? (Chaka Tented Camp)
c. Lodges. 2 of our nights will be in Sopa Lodge. I assume that lodges have electricity available for charging, but why not ask!?
2. Charging in vehicles. Our tour operator says that their vehicles have charging outlets. Do any of you know how many and/or what type of outlets we are talking about in vehicles?
3. What type of outlets are in TZ? I've attached a picture that says the 2nd one is the 'Africa' type. Is this accurate? What about for Cairo? (we're going there too).
We'll be bringing quite a few Canon batteries for our 3 people with Canon cameras (3 each/9 batteries). I just want to know that there are places to charge either while in the field or at night.
And a question that's more a curiosity than a concern:
Will we have opportunities to be outdoors at night?
I'd like to take long-exposure nighttime pictures but I don't know how the camps/tented camps/ lodges work for allowing wandering about at night.
My first thought is that it could be dangerous. Am I just being paranoid?
What do you think?
As usual, any additional insight y'all might have about these questions, anything else you may want to tell me, or ways to get through these last days! So excited for my first safari!
