At the end of the year I will be trekking through Africa with a big group of friends, and we want to keep a very simple blog to keep our friends back home informed.
Firstly, as we'll be going through Namibia, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Malawi and Mozambique, what will be the cheapest and easiest way of maintaining a wee bit of internet access through the trip? Just enough to upload a some pics and some text every day... We'll be in each country for an average of about 8 days, would it be worth trying to get a local SIM in each place with a small data plan? Or is there a network that covers a lot of these countries?
Secondly, what best to do it with? I don't want to take my laptop with, so the obvious thought was an iPad, but can you recommend anything cheaper and more/as functional? All we need to be able to do is load pics from a camera, and upload them to a WordPress site...
