Clothing

Luggage, your luggage must be packed in a soft tog or duffel bag, and for internal flight the limited is 15 kilograms including the hand bag. You should also bring a day pack of 5 Kilograms to carry any essentials you might need whilst actually on safari (20 kg total flight luggage limit).

Dressing, on safari most people wear shorts and a T-shirt during the day and put on long sleeved shirts and long pants in the evening for warmth as well as protection from mosquitoes. Should you be particularly sensitive to the sun a loose cotton shirt is essential during the day.

Fleece or sweater and a windbreaker for game drives, because it is highly possible that you may go out on a hot day, but be faced with a chill evening on your return.

Camera, Video and Binoculars

Binoculars are essential for optimum wildlife viewing on safari (and a good pair of binoculars will make a big difference to your safari). We strongly recommend a pair of binoculars on safari. 

With millions of wildlife found in Africa you wouldn’t want to miss moment and memories, a good camera will be essential in taking back your memories home. Film and batteries can generally be obtained at the rest camps, but at a price of course, so please be sure to have sufficient supplies for your needs.
