Satellite Phone in Africa
Heading to Africa for the first time next month and it looks like I'll be on the continent 3-4 times over the next two years (Namibia, RSA and Tanzania). I have been using Skype when I'm overseas and it works great IF you have an internet connection. I know I can't count on that at all in Africa so I'm considering renting or buying a sat phone.
Looking for what others have done and why. I also get backcountry in the USA/Canada once or twice a year. Thanks for your input.
