You might think Im a paranoid hypochondriac but no matter how thrilled Im about my upcoming journey through Africa there is that cloud over my head that casts a shadow over the whole situation. I feel so uncomfortable when I think about the water issue there and the possibility that I could contract some disease by drinking it. So, bottled or tap water in Africa?

OMG! Thats exactly the same problem thats been bothering me for the past few weeks! I know about all those contagious diseases in Africa such as malaria, dysentery and similar. Its almost redundant to even think about using tap water. Im even concerned about having to take a shower with it. So, I plan to drink only bottled water and I sincerely hope that it undergoes bacteriological testing. Bu again, people constantly visit Africa and dont have any health problems so if we take care what we drink and eat, I think well be on the safe side. Nevertheless, the idea of seeing African plains, savannahs, the exciting wildlife and all these cinematic sceneries is worth risking a bit, dont you agree?
