Default Back packs

To all you experienced back packers out there (I'm sure there are quite
a few!) I have a question. What size hiking/trekking pack would you
say I would need to go on a Safari for a week or two, not bringing
camping stuff, just travel gear (like clothes, camera, etc)? Would a
42-Liter capacity be big enough? Or would I need something much
bigger?
Thanks!!

Hi,

Are you going to be on safari in the bush for two weeks? Or will you
be at a lodge on safari?

If you're in the bush, and if you're not carrying food and water,and
the weather is expected to be dry, then a 30 to 40 litre pack would be
big enough (provided you pack with care). A 42 litre is perfect.

If you anticipate wet weather, you will need to carry more clothes
especially underwear and socks, because if these get wet, you'll be
miserable.

If you're going to be at a lodge, then take a bigger backpack so that
you can take a wider range of clothes, and a few luxuries.

and when you get your pack.. throw every thing you have in it and walk
around with it for a day. You will see how heavy they can get.
tip** lay out everything you want to bring then cut that in half. Walk
around (not kidding) for say 4hrs with that pack. Then lay out everything
again and cut that by half. You want to travel with not a lot of stuff that
way you can put more in your luggage for the return.:O)

I travelled for 2months with only the basics. You can buy everything you
need overseas. Depending on what country your coming from you will have to
watch what toiletries to bring ie: North America.. can't board a plane with
bottles more than 100ml.
