  • border posts and documents to take with
  • availability of fuel
  • where to camp
  • where to buy food and water
  • typical illnesses in Africa – medicine to take with, precautions re malaria, bilharzia, drinking water
  • break-down of vehicle – vehicle spare parts, recovery
  • road conditions and travelling time
  • currencies
  • typical instances of bribery and corruption
  • offline maps
