Hi Terrified of Turbulence!
No need to be unnerved, I have a different mentality about turbulence after working with Air Force pilots and flight crew for years. Turbulence lets me know that we are “flying” a quick reminder that we aren’t on the ground and we are at the mercy of the pilots and unstable air in the skies.
So kick back, relax and let them do what they are trained to do. Yes, that’s a long flight, and sleep might be your best friend, but Africa is a must no matter what country you plan to visit.
Hope this helps! Safe Travels~Nyri
