If you have recently booked a travel package to the African continent, it is important to take the time needed to get ready for your voyage. When you fly to an African country, you can expect to take a long haul flight that lasts for up to 15 hours or longer. To keep yourself and your family members comfortable and happy during your airplane voyage, there are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind. Here is a look at how to prepare for your long flight to Africa.
Make Sure that You Are Well Rested
In preparation for a long flight, many travellers choose to deprive themselves of sleep in order to increase their chances of sleeping through the flight. When you are on a flight that lasts for 15 hours, however, there is a low likelihood that you will be able to sleep for the entire duration of the flight. Instead of missing sleep, arrive at the airport fresh, well rested, and ready to embark on your voyage.
Bring Plenty of Entertainment
While your airplane may offer in-flight movies and other types of entertainment, it is always a good idea to bring your own supplies along for the ride. If you will be travelling with younger children, pack a bag with their favorite books and quiet games. During the long flight, you can take the opportunity to read a book, catch up on work, bring a crossword puzzle or sudoku book, MP3 or your own music and headphones.
Find Your Most Comfortable Clothing
When you spend hours sitting on an airplane, the last thing that you will want to experience is a wardrobe malfunction. Comfortable clothing, such as athletic apparel, leggings and compression socks will keep you comfortable and happy, throughout your flight.
