I have booked myself on a month long trip with Intrepid Travel that will take me from South Africa to Zambia, Namibia, Botswana, and back to South Africa. (The bulk of the trip will be on their 22 day Vic Falls to Capetown Overland tour) While I've camped and even once backpacked for about a week I could really use some advice on how to pack for a trip like this.
My primary concern is what to bring all of my stuff in. Can anyone who has taken a trip like this tell me if a large regular suitcase will be ok or if I should look into getting some type of backpacking pack?
My trip is in August and I will be sure to post back here about my experiences and thoughts on Intrepid's overland tour.
Thanks in advance!!
