what to take in the rainy season?

Postby jjudit » Thu Feb 18, 2010 6:14 pm

I will be traveling through Zambia, Botswana and South Africa in the beginning of March.
It's summer time but also the rainy season..... how hot does it really get during the day and how cold at night? Do I really need a very warm sleeping bag for this time of the year?

I did Kenya to Vic Falls last March. It will be pretty hot during the day. We had no way of measuring so I have no idea what the highs were. Also, I was pretty surprised at how cold it got at night. I'd suggest a 3 season bag.

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list
