          Hello, I am trying to plan a safari for our family. My daughter has life threatening food allergies to milk, egg and peanut. With such serious allergies eating at restaurants has not been something she has been able to do successfully. Therefore, we always cook for her. I always pack a suitcase with dried goods (bread, pasta, etc). I am wondering if it would be possible to get her chicken, vegetables and a hot plate so that I could cook for her? She will not eat prepared meals by a chef. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! Thank you.
