technology on safari for everyone

Cardiff, Wales - UK | Pritpal | Sunday, July 2, 2017

We love our gadgets.. one of the bushtrek directors carries around four iPhones and an ipad.. most of us stick to one!..

now the easiest way to describe gadgets on safari is by using the example of my thought process when heading out on safari..  

electricity is available in your tent too, just remember to travel with the correct adaptors for east africa.. 

mains sockets conform to the UK standard, BS 1363 three-pin (rectangular) plugs and sockets

so dont't forget to bring the correct BS 1363-3 Adaptors.. In east Africa we use uk mains voltage rating, 240V @ 50Hz, for further reference this is link is useful ..

If your are travelling with an expensive piece of electronic gear, you might want to look at travelling with these two products .. 

Especially in Africa, surge protection is of paramount importance, protecting both the motherboard and hard disks (especially SSD - sold state drives) .. other brands are available, we tend to rely on the following .. 

APC SurgeArrest Notebook Pro &  APC Essential Surge Arrest 1 outlet 230V UK

 car phone charger (cigarette) lighter can be particularly useful.. 

PLEASE NOTE: DRONES FOR RECREATIONAL/HOLIDAY USE ARE BANNED IN THIS REGION. ANY SIZE ANY TYPE. SMUGGLING THEM INTO THE COUNTRY CAN BE MET WITH A HEFTY $10000 FINE, INTERROGATION UNDER THE  TERRORISM ACT AND IMPRISONMENT... 

for those whole damage a smart phone or tablet..  various manufacturers such as apple & samsung have authorised dealers in East Africa.. all is not lost should your phone/tablet get damaged.. 

in summary.. Africa is gadget friendly.. we certainly find use for all of ours..
