Adventure mods

Hi guys

So in Desember I wanna take a road trip from South Africa to Namibia and then to Botswana. There will be a fair amount of dirt road ridding during this trip -50%. The trip will be 3 weeks and we are going to sleep in tents and lodges where we can.
Now I wanna know what extra mods can I do to the bike to make this trip?
I've been to a shop this weekend and gave them my list of mods:

1- crashbars
2- better touring screen, thinking of a Puig screen
3- spot lights
4- tank bag
5- gps mount
6- bash plate
What do you guys think, will it work?

the GIVI 80liter waterproof bag fits great across the back seat and the side cases, and holds a ton of stuff (well, 80 liters). I use an 8 liter cortech tank bag but honestly don't like it that much because it makes refueling a pain.

there is already wiring for a 12v socket or gps behind the dash.

I've seen guys with some pretty aggressive dirt tires on hypers, i definitely would want something more dirt oriented than the scorpions.
