qigkoudfviint3mo
ironically the landline data here is still trash
dsruzulsqqtp3mo
Yeah but that's (sub-saharan) Africa. Everyone uses GSM/LTE for internet there. There just isn't the infeaateucture density or financial incentive to deploy massive coax or fiber networks.
ewruhbscewnw3mo
Are you in Accra working online or on-site ysvmsrkmivrsax I'm curious what the internet is like over that way
dlktzheppgea3mo
I was eyeing Dakar for a bit, but never ended up over there. Would love to explore the west coast of africa soon
dfdxsqlsasfhq3mo
online fdupbiry
xbqzprslwngok3mo
the 4G is 15mbps and reliable so far
dqhmyfthksrca3mo
ghana is great, been before and would highly recommend
pdfnsojsujgr3mo
That's pretty good, thanks! I was going to head to N Africa for a bit, then down to Cape Town, but maybe I add some time in over there
obinlutqbmrb3mo
Have you been to other countries in the area? I'd love more insight into the cell networks there
mbysuwwsreshi3mo
not in west africa, no
euclshilfniio3mo
lots of unstable stuff around ghana rn so haven't thought about venturing further afield. know nothing about senegal but burkina faso/mali/togo/benin and to a lesser extent lagos/abidjan seem like not so good places to be rn, tho happy to be corrected if someone here is there recently
zlkqfzxcwhlyu3mo
one thing I've noticed that's changed since I was here a decade ago is all the fancy tourist hotels have really upped security after the hotel attacks in the last few years
cphepxnlawqf3mo
Ok, you're convincing me I need to study up quite a bit before heading over. East Africa was so stable, it was such an easy time getting around
jbkkftrnraofr3mo
the situation is very fluid, i only deeply researched ghana of course.
dsddzxmcvszflk3mo
I have 4 days unplanned after my safari in south africa but cannot decide where to go from JNB. I have been in Cape town before so would like to do something different. friend recommended swakopmund but it seems to be tad cold that time of the year. Vic falls would be one option but 3 nights might be too long(?) Any tips?
eosuwxbassghx3mo
go to jeffrey's bay and drive the garden route.
fcpcvfvgirh3mo
Garden route is great. If you want something a bit quieter, you can fly to vilankulos in Mozambique.
pcxoeykffjf3mo
3 days is probably about right for vic falls, but it's relatively expensive and touristy
karhnmyqzpb3mo
I wouldn't recommend anything with Namibia in 3 days. Much better to take some time to do it well and be able to see more if the west coast there.
dixbiglsqzqiw3mo
if you do the garden route, try to get a cabin at Tsitsikamma National Park
ewxssiigsibpg3mo
not doing that was one of my big regrets from that trip
poxscgzapqeku3mo
you can get cabins where the waves literally spray on the porch.
hbxbonuvahmgi3mo
it's stunning
lkqbwzjjmkmqm3mo
another option is head to clarens and do some hiking in the drakes. or sani pass and drive up to lesotho. the valley and mountains are amazing.
ftvabrffxbtxr3mo
and i really enjoyed clarens and there's great hiking in the area.
juujqjoophg3mo
Lesotho can be a bit tough if it rains though. Took me 2 days to go 18 miles, and I was in a 4wd pickup...
yuuslydccla3mo
(was still worth it)
voabtfwfsphyf3mo
yeah, i meant the day trip up through the sani pass not actually traveling in the country.
fklgzdxtfcptx3mo
i stayed at an amazing lodge in the sani valley. looked out over a lake, 1 bedroom with floor to ceiling windows on 3 walls
fwepneonwwfwv3mo
mountains in the distance
bcnueevvqvsed3mo
just did the day trip up the pass to the top then back down.
uekhvxqzgxb3mo
Do you remember the lodge? I might have to try that next time I'm in the area
