We will be in KNP on Wednesday and we're both so excited. But panic has also set in.
Do you need to get a GPS or is a paper map sufficient? We will have a mobile phones, do we need something else, eg satellite phone, just in case?
What items do we need to purchase beforehand? (a bean bag/rice bag to set our camera on, food/drinks, basic cutlery, plates, cooler box) Do you purchase coal/wood outside park? We have malaria tablets/bushman repellent, do you use anything in the room? Can you purchase binoculars in Malelane?
Are there any reliable maps with estimated driving times that we can download or should we just purchase the one inside the gate?
Do you take specific routes, or just go suggestions/sightings of other people? Are there any you'd suggest? We are in Lower Sabie, Satara and Skukuza
Lastly, any last minute hints/reminders/things you have learnt from your trips that you'd happily pass on?
Thank you in advance
