Having lived in various African countries (east and west) for 13 years I 
would like to add something to an earlier poster's suggestion as to 
electricity.  Depending on your situation, I highly recommend a 12volt 
car type source for your laptop.  A small inverter might be ideal (12vdc 
  -110vac) or 220vac depending on your needs.  If you don't have a car 
to make use of (or even if you do) an extra car battery and a charger 
for it can be bought in country and assuming you have a few hours of 
electricity you can maintain the charge for use with inverter for when 
there is no electricity.
