Dear TA friends,
We are planning our first safari ever in Namibia. We will drive from Cape Town up to Esotha National Park in June / July.
I have to specify that I have NEVER been on a safari before, and I have no clue what kind of clothes to take with me. It might seem a stupid question..... but I will only be able to bring a suitcase of approx 20 kgs and I will have to have something for Cape Town (where, I believe, it will be rather cool in June, being winter), something for the safari itself (we will be camping most of the times and I believe in south Namibia it will be cold at night) and for the couple of days we will spend in Windhoek at the end of our trip.
And what kind of shoes are most suitable for the safari?
Apart for the usual things (binoculus, etc.) is there anything that you recommend I should take with me?
And one more question: I am a vegetarian (I eat no meat and no fish) - will it be difficult to find something to eat in Namibia (at the camping sites and so on - as I assume that in Windhoek it will be no problem at all)? Should I stock up on food in Cape Town?
