        Thanks ladies!!! We are over the moon about this trip ... it's going to be fantastic!!

        But, now were stuck with which immunization shots to get etc. We just visited the travel clinic this morning and it's all SO overwhelming. We got the prescription for the anti-malaria pills and some super-strong Immodium stuff ... but now we have to decide on the other vaccines we want ...

        It's all so "what if" I hate it ... I mean, we're there for 8 days ... 8 DAYS!!! And they recommend getting about 11 shots ... like, really?? I'm thinking we're leaning towards just the Yellow Fever and tetanus shots ... the others ... well ... I just don't know. It's going to end up costing us close to $1,000 for both of us to get them ... and really, we don't have the extra for it, especially since hubby is going to drop close to $4,000 on new camera equipment this week ...

              I suggest getting the Yellow Fever and tetnus - and be really careful which malaria pill you are on - some of them have WICKED side effects!!

              But I wouldn't worry about the others - and I even stopped taking the malaria about half way through my trip. You're only there 8 days - unless you really screw up somehow when you are there, you'll be fine.

                WOW!! I'm so jealous!! Africa is definitely on my list of places I would love to visit. I would love nothing more than doing a safari excursion. I hope you have a great time and I can't wait to see the pictures.

                  Hey Miranda, I think I would also get HepA & typhoid (transmission via food & water)

                  Here's the CDC recommendations in case you're interested (recommends using Atovaquone/proguanil, doxycycline, or mefloquine for your anti-malarial since chloroquine isn't effective there)

                    Hey Karen - yeah I think we've decided to get Yellow Fever, Rabies/Tetanus, Polio, Hep A/B ...

                    They are all just recommended and since we're only there for 8 days and in a controlled setting on a press trip we're a little less worried.

                    We got an anti-malaria prescription so we'll definitely be taking that. And we got some extra-strength bug spray stuff too.

                    It was just such short notice (only found out this Monday) that we don't really have a lot of time to prep and stuff with regards to all this immunization stuff ... :-p Kinda stressful! But amazing all at once!!
