What did I pack for five weeks in Kenya, Tanzania, and Madagascar? Here is our list. It’s almost the same for each of us (I noted the differences in parentheses).
Three countries, five weeks, and 33 pounds. How and what to pack? Part of the planning stages for our African trip were getting packing ideas, shopping in our closets, buying some special clothing, then ruthless editing.
The planning for the trip of a lifetime is over. Yes, we are ready for a new adventure. Africa, here we come!
