    My biggest worry would be damaging it on the bumpy ride from Nairobi to the savanna. If it's a long flight, try a few books. almost 7 years ago

    You know all those warnings not to take expensive equipment, flashy and valuable items on holiday? It's because those items attract the attention of petty thieves. I see plenty of friends and colleagues jealously eye-ing my iPad, so I can only imagine what a magnet it would be in impoverished Africa.
    If you do take it, be especially careful in Nairobi, petty crime is rife in the CBD. Walking around with it as a tour guide is sure to get you into trouble.
    Also, on safari..... depends what sort of safari you're doing and what facilities will be available, but it's unlikely you'll get a cell signal or a wi-fi hotspot. Plus you'll have to re-charge it at some stage so what facilities are available on the safari and what kind of voltage will be output by the camp/resort generators.
    I understand the desire to take it for the flight, I'd be tempted too. Personally I think I'd leave mine at home. almost 7 years ago

    Although i wouldnt recommend bringing your ipad, I did a safari from nairobi to Zimbabwe last year. If you are doing a similar overland trip then the trucks have cages/lockers where people keep their valuables stored. However, if you are doing an overland trip I wouldn't worry about your long flight I'd worry about the endless ling bus rides so a couple of books would be helpful. On my 3 week journey I read two-800 page books to pass the time. My recommendation on ling flight instead of an iPad, watch whatevers on the plane and take a drowsy cold/flu pill that will knock you out. Any questions my twitter is LAbackpackrChik.
