For anyone that's been to both the White Nile and Zambezi..

I am heading there next week and trying to verify what adapters I am going to need for the electrical outlets.

I went to the travel store and they said it could be a number of plugs for the region. Just trying to see if anyone remembers what they noticed when they were there.

It's more than just the plug adaptor. You also need to know that everything needs to be converted from 220 to 110. The US, parts of the UK, and HK use 110. The rest of the world uses 220. Just using the plug adaptor will still fry all your eletronics. Use the internet cafes and don't bring your cell (it wouldn't work anyways- the US also uses a different system than the rest of the world). Got to love the bubble we call the 1st world.
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.
