So what do you pack when going to Africa for five months? Working for Engineers Without Borders I need to stay mobile and be office and field ready. I’d prefer to travel with only a carry-on and buy in Zambia the things I need. However, being off the tourist trail, I will need to check a backpack.
Backpack (1): I have a 60L backpack. This is bigger than necessary, but I own it.
Carry-On / Daypack (1): For carrying valuables on the plane or for use as a day pack in Zambia.
Packing Cubes & Stuff Sacks (3): Backpacks get messy when living out of them. Grouping items makes them easy to find and re-pack (see the video below).
But wait…there’s more!
