So, you’ve booked your trip to Africa, now all you need to do is pack! One of the most common questions we get asked by travelers going on an African safari vacation is “what adapter do I need for Africa?” If you plan on bringing your cell phone, iPad, camera, hair dryer, or any other electrical device that needs to be plugged in, you will want to consider purchasing an adapter.
First, it’s important to note that some remote camps do not provide electricity. It’s also important to note that some hotels and lodges have adapters in each room for guests to use at their leisure. Many of these same accommodations also have hair dryers.
Countries throughout Africa do vary in terms of their electrical receptacles. Some have a variety of different types of plugs they use, while others have one standard. So, yes, it can be a bit confusing. This is why we recommend purchasing a universal adapter before embarking on your trip to Africa.
