We are fresh off the plane from spending 5.5 weeks in Tanzania and Uganda on a month-and-a-half-long safari with our two children (3 years and 1.5 years old at the time). This is the list I wish I had when packing to ensure I remembered everything they would need (this does not include clothes).
This list would also work great for anyone going on a camping trip or to a rural area where electricity may not be readily available. This list also does not encompass their day-to-day needs, such as toothpaste, etc.
For reference, we did have power during the day, but at night, as everything was solar, it would shut off as soon as the batteries that were charged during the day died. Luckily, I knew this going into this trip, so I purchased items that could be set (fans, sound machines, etc.)- that way when the power kicked off, their sound machines and fans would still work.
